Tyler Perry is now casting for TLC’s Too Close to Home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Marinella Hume Casting is now casting actors, models, and talent to work on the new Tyler Perry scripted series for TLC called Too Close to Home. Filming is currently taking place in Atlanta, Georgia and casting directors are currently looking for a ton of background extras to work on the new TV show.

About Too Close To Home:

According to Variety, Tyler Perry is writing, directing and producing the first ever scripted series for TLC. “Too Close to Home” centers around “the story of a young woman who escaped her working class upbringing to discover unparalleled success in the fast-paced D.C. political circuit, only to find herself at the center of a scandal. After a steamy affair with a married senator makes national headlines, she is forced to return to her trailer park beginnings, where her past and everyone in it resurfaces to complicate everything,” according to Variety.

Tyler Perry’s new project is a major move for TLC, which has been known lately for scandalous reality shows. TLC has also given the green light to several new TV shows including an unscripted reality show about interior designing.

At TLC, we want to give our viewers more of what they love, and more of what we do best — we tell stories of big, fascinating characters and we tell them without judgment,” Nancy Daniels, president of TLC and Discovery Life, said Thursday in a statement prepped for the upfront. This year we’re also making a big move into the scripted space with Tyler Perry and bringing back our beloved property programming with big names like Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent. We’re beyond excited to introduce our audience to new content and refresh a genre that TLC dominated for years.”
