Here's the information I received in an email...
I am a casting producer in Los Angeles working with the Discovery Channel to develop a new show similar to Alaska Bush People, which is currently airing on the network. I am writing to see if you may have a referral to a family or community living off the grid - or - could share some information within your social circle to help in my outreach.
Ideally, we are looking for a fun, dynamic family with at least five individuals, kids ages 15-35, and live mostly without modern amenities in a wilderness environment. Do you know of anyone? Perhaps you've heard rumors? Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
This is a unique opportunity for a family to showcase their unique lifestyle and ability to survive the challenges of off-grid living.
Attached to this e-mail is a flyer both as a PDF and PNG. You may print, post, and/or distribute anywhere you'd like! Also, anyone can reach me at (323) 863-7470 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincere thanks for your help! Have a beautiful day.
