We keep saying Chicago is the new Hollywood and that's no longer just a passive joke. 

Chicago is becoming a major TV show city, adding four major broadcast drama pilots to the roster during the 2018 pilot season alone. 

In addition to funneling more money into the city, all the added shows can line your pockets with $$$! 

Honestly, it's a busy but thrilling time to be an aspiring actor in Chicago.

There is no shortage of work — just take a look at 4 Star Casting's Facebook page.

The casting agency, responsible for most of the extra jobs in town, is casting for all four pilots right now, on top of other gigs.

First up, they've got listings for Fox pilot "Infamy."

They also have multiple castings for extras and stand-ins for the "Gone Baby Gone" pilot. 

In addition, they are casting some speaking roles for another Fox pilot titled "Ms. Otis Regrets."

And lastly, they are dishing out jobs for the CBS pilot, "Red Line."

If that isn't enough for you, don't forget the staple shows — Empire, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire and Chicago Med — are always looking for extras! 

You can find Fire roles HERE, Med HERE and PD HERE!
