If you feel the desire to be included in one of the most watched TV series, here are all the details to get registered with the agency that is handling the casting for the Chicago P.D. extras, stand-ins, and non-speaking roles.
Chicago P.D. airs on NBC and was originally a spin-off of the Chicago Fire series. The series follows 2 units of the Chicago police department, an intelligence unit and a team of street cops.
Chicago P.D. will soon be filming new episodes for Season 10
Please note that the show is only considering Chicago area talent who are available to work on set shortly. Please see the details below for submission information and availability requirements as stated by the agency.
We’re starting our open call for background actors to join the Chicago P.D. Core Officer group. Availability is KEY for a core role, so please only submit if you have the time to commit 3-5 days a week, (Monday – Friday), 8-12 hours a day, between July and April. If you have another job/daytime commitment or need to request time off work to day play here and there, a core role is not the best fit for you – please wait to submit until we post for general background roles that don’t require a multi-day commitment every week. Core roles are specifically for folks who are willing to commit to the schedule and remain in the same role all season.
Background actor pay is $123.20/8 this season, which is a guaranteed $123.20 for any time worked up to 8 hours, plus time and 1/2 if it goes over 8 hours. Catered meals are also provided.

If you are missing information in your submission, it will be skipped – check all the details before hitting send.
