Alberta’s film and television scenes are thriving right now which has been pretty incredible not only for small talk and tourism but for anyone in the area with big dreams of being on the small screen. With crews, cameras and elaborate sets scattered from one corner of the province to the other, production companies are in need of extras, ready and willing to appear in shows like HBO’s The Last Of Us and now, Under The Banner Of Heaven, a series based on the Jon Krakauer novel of the same name.
Produced by an impressive team of people including Dustin Lance Black, Jason Bateman as well as Ron Howard (among others), starring Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spiderman) and Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Under the Banner of Heaven is a story of polygamy, delusional and violence.
