The new The CW Television Network (The CW) series pilot “Dynasty” is hiring extras and stand-ins to work throughout various production dates.
Speaking roles are also being cast in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Atlanta. Shooting will take place in the Atlanta, GA area beginning on March 21, 2017. The project is a reboot of the hugely popular award winning prime-time television soap opera that aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989.
The Rolls Royce of all primetime soaps, “Dynasty” returns in a modernized reboot that follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington — daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington — and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal — a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class. In an age where dynasties appear everywhere — from reality TV to the polling booths — this epic drama features the one percent in all its glitz and gloss, while exposing the dark underbelly: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal, and, in some cases, murder.
Image Awards nominee Brad Silberling is directing the pilot from a teleplay written by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick. Silberling, Schwartz, Savage, and Patrick will also executive produce along with Esther Shapiro and Richard Alan Shapiro. “Dynasty” will air on The CW Television Network (The CW).
