Make Your TV Debut In The ‘Field of Dreams’ Series
If you're looking to make your TV debut, then you're in luck! The highly anticipated Peacock series is looking to cast Iowans as extras in the show.
This summer a television prequel to the beloved movie 'Field of Dreams' will officially go into production. Filming will take place across Iowa, but there's still no sign that anything will be shot at the original baseball field site in Dyersville.
Produce Iowa, a sector of the the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs which "empowers Iowa to build and sustain culturally vibrant communities by connecting Iowans to the people, places and points of pride that define our state," is the organization that is coordinating with the television team from Peacock on this project.
These Produce Iowa officials say that full production for the show has actually shifted a bit and the crew will begin filming in Iowa around Labor Day. They are looking for production crew members to help with some of the Iowa location dates.
You can fill out a form to join Produce Iowa's production directory here. If selected, you'll be a part of the production crew for the project/be a production assistant.
With the production about to kick off in the next few months, some Iowans might be interested in working behind the scenes, but others want to be in front of the camera.
Produce Iowa officially put out the call for paid extras for this highly anticipated series. They anticipate that they will need people from September to early October for filming.
What Are The Requirements To Be In The Show?
- Age 16+ (for now)
- Have your own reliable source of transportation
- Be willing to work 8+ hours
Will I Get Paid To Be On The Show?
Yes! If you're cast then you will be paid $104 for 8 hours. If you work more than 8 hours you will also receive overtime pay!
Am I Going To Get A Costume?
Possibly! Some rolls in the show will require a fitting.
How Do I Apply?
You must create a profile through the KAAST app, and submit a few photos of yourself! Then when you have to fill out the application with correct and accurate measurements and descriptions of your background.
These questions are pretty wild too! The application asks you to check off all information about yourself that applies from your weight to whether or not you are an amputee.
Once you complete your profile then you'll be asked to register for the actual 'Field of Dreams' extra rolls. On the official Field of Dreams Iowa Casting Facebook page, the officials go into a bit more detail about the process.
There will be no overlap between the MLB game scheduled at the movie site for this summer and the scheduled starting shoot date for the series around Labor Day. The game is slated to take place on August 12th this year.
The series is expected to shoot in Polk, Mahaska, Clinton, and Boone counties this summer.
