NOW CASTING – POSSIBLE SAG/AFTRA MINI EPISODIC
2040. A new era for mankind after DIVOC was born. The world is dying… food is on decline, and the new order has risen to keep mankind alive or so they say. Lives cut short… 30 years then you perish. Is there anything worth living for?
What lies beneath the lies and kept secrets of the new order? Is there life beyond the outskirts of the city?
The journey of one man’s sacrifice leads others to upend the new order’s deepest secrets and discover the truth behind a modified genetic code. Will they survive?
Will consider SAG-AFTRA and non-union
