Local Casting for Home Brewing TV Show


Okay Home Brewers, Listen up. Apparently there is a Brooklyn based television production company looking to cast local Home Brewers in a possible, upcoming television program about different brewing cultures from around the U.S.. 

Below is a copy of the PDF that was sent to Amber at Utah's Barley's Angels Chapter. The info seems legit and the website seems legit . That being said, we (Amber and I) can't 100% vouch for it and advise anyone seeking to pursue it, to do an appropriate amount of research before giving up personal info.

With all of that cautionary language out of the way, it could be great exposure for the local beer culture and our local home brew clubs. Good Luck.

Cheers!

I live near Toledo, Ohio...but I saw this post through my google alert and I will vouch for this place.
I interviewed with them a month or so ago and they are more of a documentary-style reality show (so it's not going to be like Jersey Shore or Survivor) that focuses on people and the beer they make, they aren't looking for over-the-top people trying to be obnoxious.
They are just compiling a list of people for when they start production...so it will be a long process from what I am told before they start shooting.
Still, cool idea!

Jon, thanks much for the feedback. There's so many elaborate B.S. fishing scams out there it's hard to be certain. Prost!
