Actors Wanted for 1 Ep of 8th Series of Sherlock Holmes Web Drama Comedy

Kingston upon Thames, UK
Listed by View details

No Place Like Holmes (NPLH) is a cult web drama comedy show that is based upon Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes books and the wider world of ACD's works. It has been running since 2010, and is recognised as the first ever, and longest running, web incarnation of the character.

It follows the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson transported , by means of a demonic ritual, from 1895 to the post millennium era. There they face a continuous struggle to keep their past a secret, unravel puzzling mysteries, and all the while trying to come to terms with the peculiarities of modern day life.

The website also produces other media content relating to the literary works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This includes essays, web series, documentaries, and short films. This is a very popular website for fans of Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and sees several thousand visitors on a daily basis. So, potential exposure is good.

I am currently casting for roles in the 8th series which would be released from late 2019.

You will receive an IMDb credit, your site of choice will be promoted on both the NPLH website and Youtube video, and you will be permitted to use the footage elsewhere should you wish. Also, bear in mind that the website has great outreach, so this is something that many people could see you in. I, of course, will give you a very glowing recommendation too.

I also offer free showreel editing to any actors that works for me. This is something that most will charge you anywhere between 80-200 pounds for.

This is not a commercial production.
