LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - An open casting at the Comanche Native Headquarters in Lawton is giving some local Native Americans to be on a TV show. AMC is casting for a new show called 'The Son.' It's based on a book about the life of a young boy who was captured by Comanche Indians. In a statement from AMC, they are focused on the authenticity of the show, which is why they came to southwest Oklahoma to cast Native American background actors.

William Tosee, a Comanche native wanting to be cast in the show, says AMC trying to cast real Native Americans in the show means a lot to him and his culture.

"Because it is trying to tell the story of what our Comanche people did in the past, and to show them our culture, show them our everyday life, and how they lived," said Tosee.

Saturday, they submitted an application and took a headshot. If they are chosen, they will travel to Austin, Tx in a few weeks to film their scenes in about two days. The 10 episodes of ‘The Son’ will premier in 2017.
