NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) – A new Paramount miniseries, “George and Tammy” will be looking for TV extras for filming in Nashville in early April.
The show, starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, is based on the book “The Three of Us: Growing Up with Tammy and George,” written by Georgette Jones, daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette.
Casting is looking for actors of any gender ages 18 or older to work on April 6-7. The salary will be $80 for eight hours of work plus time and a half if eight hours are exceeded each day. No experience is necessary.
A fitting may be required for the period piece, set in the 70s and 90s, due to limited size availability.
A COVID test must be taken before working, but all extras will receive a cash boost for each COVID test taken out of shift. They will also receive a minimum bonus of $20 for the adjustment.
Interested parties can stipulate whether they are available for both days or for only one of them. Accurate clothing measurements are also required in submissions, for costume purposes.
Interested adults were invited to email [email protected] to be added to the database for this project.
Jenny Alison’s cast will respond within days of a submission if a role is available. They are looking for 150 to 300 people.
Updates and more details will be published on facebook.
