Casting for Bakken reality shown begins

Casting Director Charisse Simonian tells the Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/UF2JJT ) that she’s looking for a half-dozen or so larger-than-life characters whose work and life in the Bakken would translate into a multi-week series.

She hopes to end up with people involved in various aspects of the Bakken, anyone from a roughneck to the mom & pop owners of a diner.

Of the Bakken, she says, “Everyone says it’s like the Wild West.” She’s distributing her email address for interested people: bigfishcasting(at)mac.com.
