Tona B. Dahlquist Casting is looking for paid extras of "all ages ethnicities and types" for a 10-episode television series being shot in the Charleston area this month.

"Mr. Mercedes" is based on a Stephen King novel about an ex-cop who has to stop a mad killer's plot to kill thousands.

The stolen Mercedes emerges from the pre-dawn fog and plows through a crowd of men and women on line for a job fair in a distressed American city. Then the lone driver backs up, charges again, and speeds off, leaving eight dead and more wounded. The case goes unsolved and ex-cop Bill Hodges is out of hope when he gets a letter from a man who loved the feel of death under the Mercedes's wheels…
Brady Hartsfield wants that rush again, but this time he's going big, with an attack that would take down thousands—unless Hodges and two new unusual allies he picks up along the way can throw a wrench in Hartsfield's diabolical plans.

Variety announced the series last year. David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, L.A. Law) is slated to write and Jack Bender (Game of Thrones, Lost, Alias) will direct.

Casting directors are also looking for "a set of twins," Caucasian babies (preferably girls) 7-9 months of age.

Interested actors should be available for filming multiple days and nights the week of February 21-24.

They're also looking for several real police officers, EMTs/ paramedics and firemen as well as anyone who owns a vehicle made between 1990 and 2011.
