The new show has been described as a high-octane thriller and family saga. A synopsis for the show reads: “This Town tells the story of an extended family and four young people who are drawn into the world of ska and two-tone music, which exploded from the grassroots of Coventry and Birmingham in the late ’70s and early ’80s, uniting black, white and Asian youths.”
It’s set to feature Levi Brown, Jordan Bolger, Ben Rose and Eve Austin as the four young leads with filming taking beginning earlier this month in Wolverhampton.
In a casting call for the series it reads: “Skinheads and people with shaved heads are wanted for an upcoming BBC series, This Town (by the creators of Peaky Blinders).
“In and around West Bromwich. Must have good availability from now until the end of February.” You’ll be paid a flat fee of £10 for travel.
If it sounds like a bit of you, then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘skinheads.
Steven Knight spoke about the series last year saying it was a ‘project close to my heart”. He continued by saying: “It’s about an era I lived through and know well and it involves characters who I feel I grew up with.
“It’s a love letter to Birmingham and Coventry but I hope people from all over the world will relate to it.”
If you’re hankering for some more Peaky Blinders, it was announced last year that there would be a Peaky Blinders stage show along with a feature-length film.
