Cure SMA is excited to support casting directors from NBC as they search for boys and girls from the SMA community who are interested in playing a character with spinal muscular atrophy in an upcoming 20th Century Fox pilot. The team is currently focusing their search on children aged 7-11 years of age in the Chicagoland area or broader Midwest. Filming for the pilot will take place in Chicago between March 11th and March 30th.
To be considered for the role, please take a video, on your phone or other device, reading aloud the lines of CHRISTOPHER, as seen in the script to be found here. A parent or friend can read the lines of the other characters’ off camera. Again, both boys and girls are welcome to submit videos.
Once you’re happy with the performance, email your video and information to [email protected], and they will guide you through the rest of the process.
Good luck to everyone! We hope to see someone in our community appear in our living rooms someday soon.
