Bizzy Blonds looking for a good young man

I received this notice recently and thought you would find it a bit interesting. I especially like the way that they dance around the compensation issue (I have bolded it). I know nothing about how TV shows are put together, but I suppose if one was an male archeologist (or a background in it) who was looking for fame that this may be one way to get exposure.

Notice: No female archeologists or old guys need apply. :

If you have the time between Feb and Sep, feel free to apply.

Hello, my name is Tara Johnson and I am a Casting Director in Los Angeles. My partner Christine Scowley and I are casting a MALE HOST who needs to have a background in ARCHEOLOGY for a new series. We received your information from the Registry of Professional Archeologists. This will be an amazing opportunity for the right person, so please read on to see if you think you might be a fit for us (or if you know someone who would be.) Very specific instructions on how to submit yourself for consideration are below. (PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL – WE HAVE A SEPARATE EMAIL (see below) FOR SUBMISSIONS. IF YOU REPLY TO THIS EMAIL, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT YOUR SUBMISSION.)



MALE HOST NEEDED FOR AN EXPEDITION ADVENTURE SERIES IN EXTREME ARCHEOLOGY.



MAJOR CABLE NETWORK is seeking a Male Host (between the ages of 30 and 45) for their new series. This is NOT your typical Host. You must be comfortable “roughing it” as you will be soaked, splattered, blown, blasted and challenged at every step. This is an expedition adventure in extreme archeology. You need to be knowledgeable in archeology and you must be sincere and enthusiastic and possess a genuine curiosity about the subject. You must be adventurous, intelligent and articulate and you must be extremely comfortable in front of the camera. You will be traveling across the world to 5 different continents getting down and dirty with world-renowned archeologists and impassioned researchers. Our ideal Host would be part-adventurer, part-scientific mind, part-Host. We would love to discover a fresh face who fits our description!



You will be compensated if you are chosen to be the Host and all of your travel & expenses will be paid. You will need to be available from approximately February through September of 2007. Please do not ask us what the compensation will be as it will be determined on an individual case-by-case basis. To be completely upfront with you, the perfect candidate for this Host will be the one who understands that this is an opportunity of a lifetime and is so extremely passionate about archeology that he would do it for free. Don’t misunderstand, the Host will be compensated, we are just trying to make clear the type of personality that we need for this special series.


If you believe this is you, please follow these specific instructions below. If you do not follow these instructions exactly, YOU CANNOT BE CONSIDERED. We are sure that you have many questions about the series, but until you are further along in the casting process, we can only tell you what we have said in the paragraphs above.



1 - MAIL US your PICTURE, RESUME AND A HOME-MADE TAPE. (If you have a demo reel, send that as well.) On your home tape, show us your personality! Energy and enthusiasm are key! Show us why you would be the perfect Host for this series. BE CREATIVE! Make up an OUTDOOR scenario where you are telling us a story or explaining something and pretend to be a Host. Talk to the camera. Have fun! Don’t be boring! No more than 10 minutes long. DVD is preferred. VHS and MiniDV are also acceptable. NO Hi-8 and NO Digital-8. If you do not have the right camera, BORROW ONE! Do not tell us to visit your website or your myspace page for any of your materials. We MUST have hardcopies of everything.



2 - IN ADDITION TO MAILING US YOUR STUFF, you must also EMAIL US that it is coming. In the email, be sure to give us your full name, age, city & state where you are from and what it is about you and your background that makes you the perfect Host. Please also attach a digital photo of yourself to the email. (See our email below – DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL as we will not read it.)



NEXT STEPS: After we receive your email and your mailed package, your materials will be reviewed. We CANNOT respond to your requests to confirm if your package was received. If we need anything additional from you, we will contact you directly. Several people will be chosen as finalists and will be flown to Los Angeles to meet with the Producers of the series in person. If you are selected as a finalist, we will contact you directly. This will most likely happen BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS.



MAIL PICTURE, RESUME & TAPE(S) TO:

Bizzy Blondes Casting

13400 Riverside Drive

Suite 300

Sherman Oaks, CA 91423

So, they're looking for Indiana Jones ... a budding Steve Irwin of archeology. Perhaps a History / Discovery / Science channel new idea. Should be interesting.

Alas, not my resume ...
