FILMING will commence later this month in York for season two of the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Twelve, and the producers are looking for extras.

The eight-part series will be the biggest-ever production to film in the state.

Unit publicist Mark McGowan said shooting would commence from mid-August until November.

“We welcome individuals of all ages, ethnicities and genders to join us and create the world of these characters,” Mr McGowan said.

“Parts of our show will be shot in York and we would love to include local talent and the local community in our show, all extras roles are paid and we will provide catering to all talent.”

The Twelve is a gripping crime drama which follows a controversial murder trial seen through the lens of the jurors – 12 ordinary Australians who are facing their own realities and struggles.

Season one launched to critical reviews, receiving ten nominations, and winning three AACTA Awards in 2022 including best miniseries, it was also the most nominated drama series at the 63rd TV Week Logie Awards. The Australian series has also been sold into multiple territories around the world.

The series will be directed by Western Australian director Stevie Cruz-Martin (Safe Home, The Tailings) alongside another Western Australian director, Ben Young (Hounds of Love, Clickbait) and Mark Joffe (Jack Irish).

Together with the state government’s $105m election commitment towards building a world class film studio in Perth, the investment into the WA screen industry is establishing Western Australia as a sought-after filming destination.

Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said enticing a high-calibre, premium series like The Twelve to film in WA was an incredible outcome following the launch of the WA Production Attraction Incentive last year.

“The Twelve will be the biggest-ever production to take place in Western Australia, and we are excited to work with Binge, Warner Bros International Television Production Australia and Easy Tiger as they embark on producing this second series. We look forward to welcoming more projects like this to WA,” Mr Templeman said.

“We have fantastic local talent, breath-taking locations and incentives on offer – Western Australia is open for business.”

The Twelve production team are looking for extras. No acting experience is required.
