Roots(ProjectCasting) – Casting directors are looking for African American men and women over the ages of 18 to play a small core group that will have a recurring role for several days on the upcoming Roots reboot. Filming will take place between November 16th through December 8th in New Orleans, Louisiana.

A&E Networks is working on the Roots remake. The new mini-series will be a remake of the classic 1997 miniseries that traced a black family’s history from salvery on to the end of the Civil War. The eight-episode series, which has been in the works since 2013, will air simultaneously on The History Channel, A&E, and Lifetime in 2016.
