HBO and Cinemax are shooting a television pilot for a show called "Quarry" in Horn Lake.
When you think of Horn Lake, Miss., you may not think of Hollywood, but that could soon change.
Crews from HBO and Cinemax are descending upon Horn Lake to shoot episodes of "Quarry," a pilot that will begin filming July 22. It will be aired on Cinemax.
Mississippi casting director Marty Cherrix said she is looking for about 300 extras for the pilot.
"I need a wide range of everyday people all the way from kids to somebody who is 80 years of age," she said. "By that I mean in any given scene you are going to have more than a certain demographic or age range. We have to sprinkle it up and make it look like a good cross-section of normal society as possible. Like I say, I need everything."

The pilot is being shot on a sound stage in a Horn Lake warehouse and it will also be shot on several locations around North Mississippi.
For you to be an extra, the production company needs certain info.
"I am looking for 300 people to work and I need a photo of them, I need their age, name, height and weight and all their clothing sizes because this is a period piece," Cherrix said. "It is set in 1973 right after the Vietnam War."
Cherrix added they are really looking for African-Americans and Caucasians between the ages of 40 and 80.
As for being an extra, don't expect to get paid big bucks. You're an extra. Cherrix says some people love the experience, but don't get in it for the money.
"You certainly don't make the money an actor makes or whatever, but it is a unique experience," she said. "You'll never watch a TV show or a movie the same again, whenever you see how many hours it took in a day for your little piece of what actually ended up on camera."
To see if you have what it takes to be an extra, send a picture of yourself along with your age, height, weight, clothing sizes and shoe size to firstname.lastname@example.org.
