Amazon Studios casting call for ‘The Man In The High Castle’

Amazon Studios casting call for ‘The Man In The High Castle’ seeking men and women 18 years of age and older.

Scott Free Productions has now begun shooting the Amazon Studios television series pilot The Man In The High Castle, based on the Hugo Award-winning novel by Philip K. Dick. The show needs people 18 years of age and older. Filming is taking place in the Seattle, WA area.

The Man In The High Castle is an “alternate history” storyline that takes place in 1962, seventeen years after World War II ended. However in this universe, we lost the war. The Nazis developed a hydrogen bomb before the Americans and dropped it on Washington, D.C. The Eastern portion of the United States belongs to the Nazis, the Western portion of the United States belongs to Imperial Japan, and the Rocky Mountains are a lawless neutral-zone separating the two Axis Powers. But with Adolf Hitler having one foot in the grave, the Japanese are preparing for an imminent Nazi suprise attack of their own – or maybe it’s the other way around. The American Resistance in the United States is scattered, scared, or crushed.

Three-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Frank Spotnitz is directing the pilot episode from a teleplay that he wrote with Howard Brenton. Spotnitz is also producing along with two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee David Semel, Primetime Emmy Award nominee David Zucker, Scott Free, and Jordan Sheehan.
