'Wild Crime' on Hulu
With true crime either approaching or already at its peak popularity, Hulu and ABC News collaborated to drop a new true crime documentary last September called 'Wild Crime' which, according to ABC News, focused on the murder of Toni Henthorn in Rocky Mountain National Park. That's the actual premise of the series -- exploring true crime events in the National Park System across the country.
Last month, POPSUGAR actually named 'Wild Crime' one of the 22 best true crime documentaries on Hulu, just in time for Season 2 to start filming next week.

Starting this coming Monday, June 20, and lasting through the following Wednesday, June 29, filming for Season 2 will take place in one of the greatest cities in the country. The best part? YOU can actually be one of the stars of the show!
Kendall Cooper Casting is looking for legit locals, either to Portland or within driving distance of Portland, to be the faces and bodies of the recreation scenes in Season 2 of 'Wild Crime.' There won't be any spoken roles, but if you're a fan of a true crime, you know how often recreation scenes are shown on screen with a narrator speaking over them.
Which means some serious face time for you!
