It’s happening! If you know the perfect Erin, Tiffany, Mac or KJ for the upcoming PAPER GIRLS series on Amazon, please have their legal guardian reach out to our brilliant casting directors at the above address (NOT me or other creators of the show/comic via social media, thanks!) #papergirls #amazonprime #casting
Vaughan and Chiang began publishing Paper Girls through Image Comics in 2015. Set in the late ‘80s, the series revolves around four newspaper delivery girls who get caught in the middle of a war between two groups of time travelers. Throughout its run, the series earned rave reviews and also won several Eisner Awards, including Best New Series in 2016.
The show’s producers are currently on the lookout for young actresses to play the book’s four central characters. The notice includes breakdowns for each character along with a contact email address. Because it’s an open notice, it’s clear that name recognition isn’t a major concern. Additionally, the flyer confirms that filming will officially begin in March 2021.
Amazon revealed plans to adapt Paper Girls last year, not long before Vaughan and Chiang ended the comic after 30 issues. The streamer also enlisted Toy Story 4 co-writer Stephany Folsom to act as showrunner, and earlier this year, the show was officially ordered to series.
Amazon hasn’t set a premiere date for Paper Girls.
