New Netflix Drama Series to Film in Charleston; Extras Needed

A new Netflix series will soon begin filming in the Charleston area and a local casting agency has already put out a call for extras.

OBX, a coming-of-age drama set in North Carloina's Outer Banks, follows four teenagers stuck in a fictional town after a hurricane cuts off all power and communication to the islands. Wilmington resident Jonas Pate will serve as writer and director for the show. Netflix has reportedly picked up 10 episodes of the series.

According to a post from TW Cast & Recruit, the show will start filming in the Charleston area on Wednesday, May 1st. The agency also shared that they will be casting extras for the series. For information on how to apply, see below.

Pate reportedly wanted to film the series in his hometown of Wilmington, but remnants of North Carolina's House Bill 2 "that live on in its 2017 replacement, HB 142, including a clause that, until 2020, prevents local governments from enacting nondiscrimination ordinances protecting any group not already protected by state law—including LGBTQ people," bothered Netflix, so the production will call Charleston home instead.


Though the greatest need will be for teens and young adults, there will be plenty of opportunities for all ages to work on the production throughout the duration of filming. Pay rate is $80 for 8 hours and time and a half for every hour that exceeds the 8th.
