The third season of HBO's crime anthology series True Detective set to be filmed in Northwest Arkansas is seeking actors, extras and stand-ins.

Anyone interested in being a part of the "story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks" can apply online, according to a posting from The Agency Inc., the Little-Rock based company working with the show.

Officials announced the decision to film the third season in the Natural State in December, Arkansas Online previously reported. Shooting will begin in February and continue through the end of June, the site says, with casting being an ongoing process.

The application form asks for personal information and a headshot, as well as if the candidate has access to a vehicle from between 1970 and 1990, experience in the military or law enforcement or expertise with welding, river dredging or operating a forklift.

The production is expected to employ at least 300 people.

    I'm thrilled that the show will actually be shot in Arkansas. I was similarly disappointed that the recent Netflix show "Ozark" was shot in Georgia.
