According to a recent post on the Michigan Film & Television Group Facebook page, Jewel Of The Nile Productions is casting in Michigan and Los Angeles for the upcoming series.

The name of the series has not yet been announced, but a show description has been released,

This is a psychological Hitchcock thriller. A group of close-knit friends get together for a late-night celebration. The characters are all colorful and some may be flawed and it shows. Even though things started out smooth, bumpy roads are just round the corner.



Actors are wanted for lead and supporting roles. The list of characters and character descriptions are as follows,
