The third season of MTV’s scripted semi-anthology series tells the story of Deion Elliot, a local star running back whose past comes back to haunt him. New cast members include rappers Tyga and C.J. Wallace, and Queen Latifah has joined as an executive producer.

What are they looking for?

Caucasian-looking 7- to 12-year-olds are needed to portray trick-or-treating kids in an upscale suburban neighborhood. You’ll need to include a photo of your child in a non-trademarked, generic Halloween costume that you’ll be able to bring, such as a witch, cowboy/girl, police officer, cat, etc.
