Casting Notice: Discovery Channel Series

Emmy Award-winning Peacock Productions will be filming an episode of the Discovery ID Documentary Series ‘Disappeared’ in and around Placentia, CA between February 4th and 7th. The series recounts missing person cases through compelling interviews and beautifully constructed re-enactments of actual events. As an organization conducting  acting workshops in Southern California, I was hoping that you might be able to help me cast some of the parts that we’re looking to fill locally, by persons wanting more on-camera experience. These roles are:

Male, 70-80 years old, Caucasian, 5’11”, 140 lbs, bald head,

Female, Caucasian, 65-75 years old, 5’7”, short dirty-blond hair

Female, Caucasian, brown hair, 50-60 years old, 5’, heavy-set/230lbs

Female, Caucasian, short brown hair, 45-65 years old, 5’2”, 135 lbs

Female, Caucasian, light brown hair, 45-65 years old, 4’10”, 100 lbs

Male, Caucasian, thinning salt+pepper/gray hair, salt and pepper beard, 5’10”, 185 lbs

Female, Caucasian, 45-55 years old, long blond hair, attractive, 5’6”, 120 lbs

Female, Polynesian/Hispanic/Philipino, 45-50 years old, shoulder-length dark brown/black hair, attractive, fit body, 5’1”, 127 lbs

These are (mostly) not speaking roles, and our compensation rates are (unfortunately) very low (between $50 and $75/day), but this could be a great opportunity for less-experienced talent to work with a professional team and earn a credit on a nationally and internationally syndicated series.

If you can think of anyone `who might be a good fit please have them email me ASAP at with:

1. The role they would like to be considered for (please also put in subject line of email)
2. their CURRENT headshot, body shot, and resume
3. their availability between the above dates
