Missing Woman Films is casting for the pilot episode of a potential television series called, The Darkness. It’s an action/adventure western set during the Civil War with a full cast of female characters. Think Xena: Warrior Princess as a Native American outlaw.

Production will commence in summer 2019, exact dates TBD. This pilot will be used as a pitch video to networks and various VOD platforms. So, we unfortunately cannot offer much compensation to start, but can promise a good time, IMDb credit, and substantial clips for your reel.
