NOW CASTING: FEATURED BACKGROUND ROLES in Chicago for “Chicago Fire” & “Chicago Med”- TV Shows- AGES 20’S-50’S- ASAP!

A new season of NBC’s Chicago shows is currently filming in the Chicagoland area and they are looking to cast folks who would like to work as paid background extras on the show in 2022.
NBC sister show, Chicago P.D. is also currently filming in the Chicago, Illinois area and the extras casting notices for that show may be found here.
Chicago Med  is created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. The show is a spin-off of NBC’s popular drama series “Chicago Fire” (which is also filming right now).  “Chicago Med” is described as “an emotional ride through the day-to-day chaos of the city’s most explosive hospital and the courageous team of doctors that holds it together”.  In the series premiere, the grand opening of Chicago Med’s emergency department is interrupted by victims of an “L” train crash, pushing the staff to their limits.
About the show:

But from the relentless pressure of saving lives, an extended family is forged. Led by Chief Wallace Boden, Matthew Casey, Kelly Severide, and the others know — when it’s go time, Firehouse 51 lays it all on the line for each other.
