HBO/Cinemax “The Knick” Starring Clive Owen Casting Call for Extras in New York City

Project Casting

Casting directors are seeking extras to work on the upcoming HBO/Cinemax project “The Knick” currently filming in New York City.

According to Cinemax, the basic plot of the series breaks down like this:

Set in downtown New York in 1900, THE KNICK centers on Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The writing team of Jack Amiel and Michael Begler (Raising Helen,Big Miracle), who wrote the pilot for the series, will serve as executive producers, along with Soderbergh, Owen, Michael Sugar (Rendition) and Gregory Jacobs (Behind the Candelabra).

As reported by HBO and Cinemax, Steven Soderbergh (Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra) will direct Clive Owen in all ten episodes of the first season, which will began production in New York this September. Currently, there are little else to go on but the names of the series’ director, star and writers, but there’s no doubt that those names have already generated a great deal of attention and interest, so announcements rounding out the cast will likely be coming without much delay.
