Attention TV Casting Folks

Posted on: December 20, 2011

About every two or three weeks, I get an email from this or that casting company asking if I’d be interested in being involved with some new program or perhaps just helping to get the word out about a proposed new show. Please, before emailing me, read through the following.

If you are looking for a disaster readiness expert to be involved in a show that strives to be truly educational, I’m interested.

If you are seeking a true professional who has common sense solutions to problems preppers face, I’m your guy.

If you are trying to find someone who is comfortable on or off camera to provide commentary, advice, or tips on being prepared for whatever life may toss our way, give me a shout.


If you are casting for a show that intends on portraying preppers as goofballs, wing nuts, or full blown whack-a-loons, don’t waste my time or yours.

If the show you have in mind has the goal of pointing a finger and saying, “Get a load of THESE nutters,” don’t bother contacting me.

If my involvement is going to entail giving a guided tour of my own preps, yeah, um, I’m gonna pass.

With interest in prepping at an all time high, it stands to reason TV production companies would like to take advantage of that fact. I’m all for using whatever means necessary to get people more involved with making their own preparations for potential emergencies. I’d love to see more TV programs devoted to this topic.

But, rather than focus on the few extremists who make us all look bad, how about doing something that might be both entertaining and informative? There are hundreds of thousands of people in the US who are looking for quality information on how to be better prepared. They don’t need nor want Hoarders. They want a prepper version of Mike Holmes.

Yeah, that’d be me.

  1. Preach it! It seems that Hollywood doesn’t know how to do an unbiased show about anything real. They are all about portraying the kooks, the hoarders, the extremists and the never-washed-a-dish unreal housewives, rather than something that would really benefit the public.
