So, I Get This E-mail The Other Day…
And it’s from a Casting and Development Producer for what they claim is a major television network. They really didn’t provide much detail or any specifics as to what is expected, but clearly they are looking for some raw talent meeting the following criteria:
- From Minnesota
- Business Owner
- And other people in-between.
Okay, I’m not exactly an athlete and my partying days are largely in my past, but after a few days ruminating on this possibility I just had to send off an application. I figure…what the heck! I’ve got nothing to lose.
For the past four years I have been hounding Michelle Scheuermann, with the Sportsman Channel, they should develop a program called the Great American Snipe Hunt. It would be a comedy show spoofing the long-standing practical joke that has been played on unsuspecting people for many decades. Hidden cameras would show green outdoorsmen out in the woods with…well, you guessed it…a light and a gunny sack.
Now, mind you this tongue-in-cheek program pitch wasn’t any more serious than the program I was proposing, but it’s quite obvious with the cult success of Duck Dynasty that the world is hungry for programming that is a bit off-the-wall funny.
I’ll keep you informed as to when I get chosen for the lead role. Okay, I will tell you if ANYTHING happens from this point forward. Also, if you think you have the character and personality to be part of a reality TV program drop me a note at: jim7226 at Hotmail dot com. I’ll pass along the details as to how you, too, can apply for this interesting opportunity.
