Wanna Be In A Scripted Show About Good Records?
Like any good music-obsessed Dallasite, Christopher Telles is a big fan of the revered Lower Greenville record store Good Records. Unlike so many of the rest of us, Telles works in television.
In fact, just a a couple years back, he moved up to Dallas from Austin to pursue a career in the world of TV. And, in doing so, he's had some luck, finding work on the sets of such Dallas-shot TV series as NBC's Chase and FOX's The Good Guys.
Now, though, he's working on an idea all his own. This summer, Telles will begin shooting a scripted series about the people who work in and around a hip record store — specifically Good Records, which is fully on board with the concept of the show, so much so that the store will not only serve as the setting for the show, but also, as of now, as its namesake.
As for what the show will entail? Back in March, Telles told Preston Jones of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he's going for a sort of Portlandia-meets-Girls-meets-High Fidelity vibe, which sounds pretty cool but could also mean just about anything.
Anyway, if this show sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, you should know the following: From noon to 6 p.m. on this coming Saturday (May 18), Telles and Beth Sepko, the Emmy Award-winning casting director of Friday Night Lights, will be holding court at Good Records while looking for actors to serve in paid and extra roles alike on the series. No experience is necessary, Telles says, although registrants are asked to bring along a photo of themselves that they won't be getting back.
