Extras Casting Director ready for ‘Dirty Dancing’ and FOX’s ‘Shots Fired’

A lot of people have been hounding me (in a loving way) about who is doing extras casting outside of Wilmington. Well, congrats to Tona Dahlquist of Tona B. Dahlquist Casting. She will be heading up not one, but two productions West of Wilmywood.

ABC’s 3 hour event, Dirty Dancing and FOX’s new series, Shots Fired.

Dirty Dancing is an adaption of the beloved 1987 hit romantic drama which was shot in part in North Carolina. Produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Allison Shearmur Production, the TV event—starring Abigail Breslin, Debra Messing, Colt Prattes, and Sarah Hyland  The production will take place in the state’s western region, including Jackson and Buncombe Counties among other locations next month.

SanaaLathanShots Fired is a series from 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television that will base out of Charlotte. This could be a great one as Brian Grazer is the producer behind it. It has gone by multiple names such as Indictment and the most recent Untitled Gina Prince-Bythewood Project. She is the writer/director on this project. The LP is Howard Griffith who has been here before. Sanaa Lathan is set to star as an expert investigator who digs into the cases, alongside a special prosecutor sent to the town by the Department of Justice, to seek justice before the divided town erupts.
