Virgin Media seeking extras for MMA fight scene in new show Darklands

Upcoming Virgin Media crime drama Darklands is looking for extras.

The filming will take place between 9am and 5pm on Friday, 9 August. The shoot will take place at the SBG gym in Tallaght - a brand made famous by UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who is a member.

The show is created by Mark O'Connor, the man behind the popular Irish crime film Cardboard Gangster, starring John Connors.

"It's a gritty drama series set in Bray Co Wicklow in the modern day about a young aspiring MMA fighter stuck between his career supporting his family and the seedy world of gangland crime," according to the extras department for the show. "It's about family, friends, gangs, drugs, love, violence and the MMA fight community."

They're looking for as many people as possible to come out and be in the crowd for a fight scene. People of all ages are welcome.

Unfortunately it's unpaid, but hey, who doesn't love to see themselves on TV? Extras will get food and refreshments, as well as free Darklands t-shirt.
