According to the Visit Syracuse Film Office, a new indie production team is seeking extras for the filming of a TV pilot in Syracuse.
The project, a television comedy called “Imposters,” is seeking local extras of East Asian descent to play “wealthy investors at a board meeting.” The cast includes Alex MacNicoll (“13 Reasons Why,” “Transparent”) and the production features production veterans from the Oscar-nominated film “Sound of Metal” and “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” as well as experienced crew members from Comedy Central.
“Imposters” will explore the lives of college students of color, as they navigate friendships, relationships and existential crises, all while staying ahead of the curve. The pilot episode launches the fictitious college into a nationwide scandal when a popular fraternity accidentally kidnaps the wrong student and ends up with the President’s son instead, causing a scandal both on social media and within the nation.
The pilot will be filmed at various locations in Syracuse next week. If you are of East Asian descent and interested in being an extra, email [email protected] with the subject line “SYRACUSE TV PILOT: [EXTRA – BOARDROOM INVESTOR]”; include a recent selfie or headshot.
“Imposters” is one of several productions shooting in Central New York month, along with an indie film called “Mabel,” American High’s next movie “Love in Color,” and the Syracuse-based cultural travel series “Off the Wall & Up Close.”
