Open casting calls for background extras for a new TV series, "Yellowstone" will be held in Missoula and Hamilton this weekend.

"Yellowstone," starring Kevin Costner, follows "the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders — land developers, an Indian reservation and America's first national park," according to a news release.

"It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber companies."

The writer and director for the 10-episode series, Taylor Sheridan, has an Oscar nomination for his "Hell or High Water" screenplay. He wrote and directed the Casey Affleck film, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" and has a new thriller, "Wind River" starring Jeremy Renner out now.

According to the news release, extras selected here will be used on a shoot in Darby and Livingston. Hollywood trade publications have said much of the series will be shot in Utah.
