New TV series holds casting call

Posted: Updated:

MARION -- A new indie TV series is looking for local talent.

The series, Knight's End, is set in 1017 in England and follows a young man who sets out to avenge his sister but ends up fighting an evil that haunts his village. 

The show's producers say they are looking for actors with a rugged beard or a wild look who fit the "Camelot" image.

Workers said they also need various crew members, including a location manager to stay on top of all the moving parts that will crop up as the production begins to find filming locations.

"We're looking at people, and if they have experience that's great, but if you don't have any experience and thought this is a great opportunity to be in a movie, then just come out and do it," said writer and co-producer Jon Musgrave.

For those interested in auditioning on Saturday, organizers recommend scheduling a visit ahead of time.

The casting call will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, August 12 at Artstarts in Marion.
