BBC has a new series in development and is looking for a former or current fisherman to host!
Attached are some casting/show details, sent to me by Rachel Stevens, the Casting Producer:
They’d love to find a personable host, a person who has “been there and done that” when it comes to adventurous and daring situations. They’d like the person to be athletic and between the ages of 25-45 ish.
Here’s the Official Notice:
BBC Worldwide Productions and the producers of Dancing with the Stars, Skating with the Stars, Top Gear and What Not To Wear are currently seeking fearless hosts with a high tolerance for disgust, danger and extreme situations!
Are you an all-out risk taker with an above average tolerance for all things difficult, adventurous, or unexpected when it comes to occupational duties?
We are seeking an International host to work shoulder to shoulder with every day workers in occupations that most people avoid. You will dive in and work hard to complete every task despite potential danger, discomfort, or hazardous situations.
If extreme crab fishing, dealing with explosives and demolitions, smoke jumping, working on an off shore oil rig, mining coal, or wrangling alligators are within your scope of ordinary, you could be who we are looking for!
You will profile the unsung laborers around the globe who make their living in the most unthinkable — yet vital — ways. Our host must be willing to overcome their fears and embrace the danger and deal with the stress of an honest day’s work!
