CW’s New Series ‘Containment’ Open Casting Call in Atlanta

Project Casting

CW is holding an open casting call for actors to work on the new series ‘Containment’ as it films in Atlanta, Georgia.

Containment is an upcoming The CW series, based on the Belgian TV series Cordon. The show was officially ordered as a series on May 7, 2015. Containment shot its pilot episode over the course of three weeks on location in Atlanta, Georgia. Several local extras were cast for roles in various scenes.

‘Containment’ follows an epidemic that breaks out in Atlanta, leaving the large city quarantined and those stuck on the inside fighting for their lives. The drama tells the story of loved ones torn apart, and how the society that grows inside the cordon reveals both the devolution of humanity and the birth of unlikely heroes.

Background Artists Casting, the extras casting company for popular shows such as ‘The Vampire Diaries’ is looking for extras to work our upcoming episode. Shoot dates will be August 10th through August 28th in Atlanta, Georgia.

Casting directors are looking for kids, teens, police, and business professionals to work on the new CW series as it films in Atlanta, Georgia.
