Filming for the Chicago/Northwest Indiana arm of the Emmy-award winning crime show “Crime Stoppers” starts Monday, Aug. 13, and its producers seek local extras and actors to re-enact the crimes.
People interested should send contact information and a jpeg head shot of themselves to production coordinator Maria Guillen at maria@crimestoppers
television.com. Professional training is not required.
The show’s format follows “America’s Most Wanted,” but on a local level and is used as a tool for law enforcement agencies to help solve cold cases.
Episodes are broken down by victim’s family interviews, detective interviews and crime re-enactments. A reward is given if the tips lead to an arrest.
