Background casting continues for NBC’s hit drama “Chicago PD”—this time, with opportunities for young talent! 

“Chicago PD” follows the intelligence team of District 21 of the Chicago Police Department as they fight the organized crime, drug trafficking, and high profile murders of the city. 

There are several roles available for male and female talent, aged 8–12, to portray abducted children, as well as two roles to play dead children. Actors in the latter roles must be comfortable with SFX blood and makeup while laying on the ground in the dirt.  

There are also roles available for young female actors, aged 16–19, to portray wannabe gang members, and two additional background roles available for talent, aged 20–49. 

The production will shoot Sept. 8–13 in Chicago, Illinois. Roles correspond to specific shoot dates and require wardrobe fitting prior to the shoot date. Pay starts at $88 for eight hours of work and fittings pay $25.
