We are currently working on Chi-Raq and Empire.

We have big days on Chi-Raq Monday through Thursday.

On Monday, June 22nd – we are looking for the following:
JOB SEEKERS: African American, Males, 18 – 35

SHOP OWNERS- Male, Asian, Middle Eastern, Indian, Ages 30-65

KIDS: African American, Males, 10- 14 who have a valid, Illinois work permit.

Tuesday through Thursday, we are looking for people who have more of a military look for the spots we have left.

***** And For Empire ******

For Empire, we have possible multiple dates on Tuesday through Thursday.

We know that this is a sensitive subject, but we have to ask the questions. We are filming at a juvenile facility and you must be able to pass a background check – meaning you have not been convicted of a felony or sexual offense.

We will have a few children on Wednesday as visitors, and the parents must be able to pass the background check as well. The kids (15 and younger) must have a valid, Illinois work permit. Parents should fill out the survey as well.

**Are you registered with us? If not, go to our website for instructions**

**If you haven’t sent submissions into Chi-Raq or Empire, the only way we can book you is to look up your information in 4 Star Casting – the registration must have your photo – No Exceptions**

YOU MUST DO THIS BEFORE COMPLETING THE SURVEY. If we do not have your registration, you CAN NOT be considered.

We will be looking at your pictures from your registration to determine casting.
This serves as an availability check – not a booking. If we are able to book you, it will be on the project we chose based on your responses.

There are 3 steps involved in working on the show:
Here’s an explanation of what those steps are!
A few days before each episode shoots, you will receive an availability check for the dates we need you. You will need to respond with your availability for those dates ASAP. Or complete a survey with your availability.
An availability check does NOT mean you are booked!
Once we receive everyone’s availability, we will book people based on the needs of the production for those days.
If you are booked, you will receive a BOOKING EMAIL. It will give you the details of the days you are booked to work. You must respond to your booking or you will be replaced.
If you respond to the AVAILABILITY CHECK and don’t receive a booking email, it means that you are not needed for that particular episode. If you don’t work on one, it doesn’t mean you won’t work on the next one. We will do our best to get a booking email to you no later than 48 hours of the shoot date. If production has last minute changes, this can sometimes lead to a cancellation. We will do our best to book you at a later date if this happens.
The day before your booking you will receive your CALL INFO. You can expect this email to arrive some time between 8:00PM and 11:00PM. This is because we do not get the official call times until they are finished filming on that current day. When you receive your CALL INFO email you are REQUIRED to respond. This is how we know you have received the information and that you will be there.
