According to SAG-AFTRA's official website, all members of the guild involved with the drama series have been ordered to stop working due to a violation the production company made.
"Please be advised that Unfiltered Dreams Productions, the producer of the new media series Sins, has not completed the signatory process with SAG-AFTRA and, as such, SAG-AFTRA members are hereby instructed to withhold any acting services for this production until further notice," the Do Not Work Notice states. "Please note that accepting employment on Sins may be considered a violation of Global Rule One."
In December 2013, after SAG and AFTRA merged, SAG-AFTRA clarified its Global Rule One which states that "No member shall work as a performer or make an agreement to work as a performer for any producer who has not executed a basic minimum agreement with the [union]."
As previously reported, Parsons was hired to play the role of serial killer David Jagger Jr., while Hearst announced he has signed on to play the role of FBI agent Jack Bellows in the series that follows A.D.A. Sabine Evans (Fancy Macelli) in her decade-long quest to catch Jagger.
Sins also stars former Days of our Lives star Craig Tsuyumine (ex-Dr. Sanders) and The Brady Bunch's Florence Henderson.
