The Messengers has been upgraded from “pilot” to SERIES

Posted by on May 8, 2014 | Comments Off on The Messengers has been upgraded from “pilot” to SERIES

UPDATE 6/12/14: A full series order is scheduled to start shooting, in New Mexico this Summer!

UPDATE 5/18/14: OHI has confirmed with a source close to the production that the full series order, stemming the New Mexico pilot, “The Messengers” WILL SHOOT IN NEW MEXICO.

Check White Turtle Casting for possible extras casting updates.

The show will air on the CW network beginning mid-season 2015.

Official Synopsis:

In the white-hot sun of the New Mexico desert, scientist Vera Ivanov watches in fascination as a mysterious object plummets to Earth and explodes in a blinding flash, sending out a shock wave that briefly stops her heart. But Vera is not the only one affected by the blast: she is instantly and mysteriously connected to four other strangers, who also collapse only to miraculously come back to life hours later. Erin, a young mother desperate to protect her 7-year-old daughter from an abusive ex-husband; Peter, a troubled high school student who finally lashes out to end the constant bullying he can no longer endure; Raul, a federal agent looking to escape his undercover assignment in a violent Mexican drug cartel; and Joshua, Jr., a charismatic second-generation televangelist following in his father’s footsteps – all awaken after the pulse with powers they can barely believe, from inexplicable strength to the ability to heal others.

Most mysterious of all is the figure known only as The Man, who offers Vera the one thing she wants most in life – to be reunited with her kidnapped son – if she will help him with one morally complicated task. That task puts Vera on a collision course with nurse Rose Arvale who, after a seemingly random act of violence left her in a coma for seven years, suddenly begins to stir. As Joshua, Jr. prophesizes, the wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and this group of strangers might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture…or causing it.

The series stars Shantel VanSanten (“Gang Related,” “One Tree Hill”) as Vera, Jon Fletcher (“City of Dreams”) as Joshua Jr., Sofia Black-D’Elia (“Betrayal,” “Gossip Girl”) as Erin, JD Pardo (“Revolution”) as Raul, Joel Courtney (“Super 8”) as Peter, Anna Diop (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Rose and Diogo Morgado (“Son of God,” “Sol de Inverno”) as The Man. THE MESSENGERS is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Entertainment, in association with Thunder Road Pictures with executive producers Trey Callaway (“Revolution,” “CSI: NY”), Basil Iwanyk (“The Town,” “The Expendables” film franchise, “Clash of the Titans” film franchise) and co-executive producers Eoghan O’Donnell (“Teen Wolf”), Kent Kubena (the upcoming “Gods of Egypt,” “Turistas”) and Ava Jamshidi. The pilot was directed by Stephen Williams (“Lost”).

Duo Cast in DW Drama Pilot “Messengers” – Deadline Hollywood

CW series pilot casting in New Mexico copy

White Turtle Casting is looking for 18 year olds who look younger, real military, ex military and military types.

They are also looking for all types for many different scenes.

To be considered – email a photo, contact number, height, weight and your availability to: extras[at]whiteturtlecasting.com.

If you have previously submitted with White Turtle NOW is the time to send in an updated photo and contact information along with titles you’ve worked on before.

p.s. White Turtle is the Casting Agency which handled background talent on a little show called, Breaking Bad. And word on the wire is that the Saul Goodman spinoff of that (the best show ever) is headed back to the Q.

In the meantime…we believe THIS call is for the CW series pilot currently titled, “The Messengers”.

From Pilot Scoop:

It’s official: The CW will begin shooting The Messengers next month […]

The network has handed a pilot order to the sci-fi drama, penned by Teen Wolf scribe Eoghan O’Donnell.

The conceit: When a mysterious object crashes down to earth, a group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse, but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse.
