Casting call is out for “The Walking Dead” fans to be part of “The Walking Dead” follow up show, “The Talking Dead”
Here is a chance to join comedian Chris Hardwick who hosts the the series, live in the studio with some of the Walking Dead cast, producers, writers and other Walking Dead related guests. Those that get selected to be on the show will get a chance to preview the week’s new episode of “The Walking Dead” before it airs on TV in the studio. “The Talking Dead” airs on AMC and directly follows the new episode of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday nights.
Do you love “The Walking Dead“? If so, here is a chance to come watch the show discussed live with the show’s stars and producers. “The Walking Dead” season 5 after show is casting now and season 6 casting calls will be coming up soon. While “The Walking Dead” films and casts extras in the Atlanta area, “The Talking Dead” films in the Los Angeles area. This is a non-paid gig, so the show is only looking to cast people who live in Los Angeles or are planning to come to Los Angeles shortly.
“As an enormous fan of both The Walking Dead comic and television show, I pretty much begged for this job,” Hardwick said. “Dissecting the moves of Rick Grimes and the remaining survivors after every episode is something I would be doing with my friends anyway, so the fact that AMC is actually paying me to do so is a bonus.”
WE ARE LOOKING FOR…
50 diehard Walking Dead fans to participate in the live after-show Talking Dead. And, you will pre-screen the Walking Dead episode prior to the live show.
AMC’s Talking Dead, the network’s first live after-show follows the hit AMC series The Walking Dead. The half-hour program is produced by Michael Davies’ Embassy Row and hosted by Chris Hardwick. “Fans of The Walking Dead are incredibly engaged with every aspect of the show. They tweet, blog, and post comments in very large numbers, and we wanted to give them an opportunity to interact with the show in a way that they don’t currently have — a kind of live water cooler,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s SVP original programming, production and digital content.
