A slew of popular TV shows are ramping up production in Chicago and it looks like all those shows need extras.

4 Star Casting on Facebook says they’re looking for extras now through July 28. The shows include “Empire, The Chi, Shameless, South Side, Chicago P.D., and Steve McQueen’s Widows!”

The best part of this particular casting call is 4 Star isn’t looking for a specific age group or gender.

They’re looking for anyone interested in being an extra to fill out a quick survey.

Inside the survey, 4 Star is asking for the dates you can work as an extra, then a few of the more mundane details, such as name, number, zip code and email.

You will be asked your height, weight and other pertinent details the further you get into the survey. Be sure to have a few photos of yourself on your phone or computer because the casting agency is going to need those too.

Fill out the survey, and let us know if you got the call. Good luck!
