The Lifetime television series “Army Wives” is seeking to recruit more paid extras as it prepares to tape new episodes in the Charleston area.
Production for the cable program’s seventh season is scheduled to begin in mid-December and wrap up in May.
The TV show is asking men, women and children of all ages and ethnicities who are interested to register at extrassignup.com. It is requesting two digital photographs from each person be uploaded on the site, a head-and-shoulders close-up and a full-body shot.
Anyone who has registered previously for paid extra roles also can go to the site to update their contact information and pictures. “Army Wives” does not guarantee callbacks.
“Charleston has been a great place to film, and we are excited to be here for Season 7,” said Ashli Bogart, the show’s extras casting director.
All of the filming will be done in the Charleston region. The work for extras is day-to-day and can require a flexible schedule.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a permanent job for anybody,” Bogart said Tuesday. “We’re looking for kids. We’re looking for families. ... We always like to use actual military personnel and veterans to give back to the military community.”
Bogart declined to disclose the pay scale, saying it can change based on certain factors, such as the number of extras working on a given day.
Lifetime renewed “Army Wives” in September for 13 episodes to air next year.
At least one star of the show is not returning — Kim Delaney’s character Claudia Joy Holden will be killed off in the season premiere, producer Jeff Melvoin told TV Line this month.
Delaney had been with the show since its first pilot episode was filmed in Charleston in September 2006.
