If you’ve ever wanted to star in a film or television show, this could be your big break… sort of. AMC’s upcoming series, The Walking Dead, will begin filming in Atlanta, Georgia beginning on June 2. In addition to the pilot episode, the series will air a minimal five episodes.
The series, set and filmed in Atlanta, sets the scene in a post-apocalyptic environment. One of the main characters in this scene believes they’re alone, but they soon find themself surrounded by the living dead.
In addition to having to close a few major streets in Atlanta, the production company is in search of a few extra people to play the role of a zombie. However, it’ll take more than a sign up to play this less than glamorous role. You’ll have to attend zombie school and attend “classes” for a week (which every zombie already selected has been put through). You are also not allowed to mention anything related to the production and will be subsequently fired if the slightest mention of anything is found on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Since I’m a writer and am quite a ways away from Georgia, I won’t get the chance to audition. However, if you’re ready for a role you were destined to play, all you have to do is submit an email with your information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
