A new television series is set to be filmed on Vancouver Island.

Hot off the success of the survival show Alone, the Hallmark television series Chesapeake Shores will be filming for 3 months, and you have the chance to be a part of the process.

Producers are looking to cast background extras for the 3-month filming process.

North Island Film Commissioner Joan Miller says there will be casting sessions this week.

She says the work will involve long days from May 16th to July 28th.

Miller notes you need to be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to audition. The first casting session goes Wednesday, May 4th in Campbell River at the Enterprise Centre.
