Thread: Discovery's "The Colony" is Casting for Survivalists in Los Angeles

  1. #1

    Default Discovery's "The Colony" is Casting for Survivalists in Los Angeles

    Discovery's hit series, "The Colony" is casting for Season 2 in Los Angeles. We are looking for the following types of people:

    - Virologist/Bacteriologist
    - Someone in the medical field
    - Housewife
    - Pairs (any two people in some way connected to each other)
    - Electronics Engineer
    - Mechanical Engineer

    "The Colony", deemed a "social experiment", is a groundbreaking, critically acclaimed docu-reality series that explores what would happen to survivors of a suburban American neighborhood left reeling in the wake of major catastrophe. We are casting for resourceful, ambitious, ingenious people who possess the skills required to rebuild a society. All applicants must possess skills such as mechanical, hunting, fishing, plumbing, carpentry, electrical, medical, animal tracking, plant knowledge, etc. (these skills do not necessarily pertain to the housewife)

    Casting ends soon so please contact: alicia@metalflowersmedia.com. Please include your name, contact #, photo and why you would be a great fit for The Colony!

    Filming begins at the end of March for 10 weeks.

    This sounds like a job offer here. Lemme' check my schedule.

    In the meantime, in OUR colony, new members usually post an introduction. Even survival program recruiters post 'em.

    Care to follow our tradition?

    If anybody here joins "The Colony," the rest of us expect at least one plug for the Forums in every episode.

    And you'll probably need an agent on your hike to stardom. Lawyers make the best agents. Just sayin'.

    Hmmm I did not see any need for a Chef.What about knowlege of food born illness?

    But then if you have the knowlege you can really mess with the usless members. ( I swear its safe to eat,I just don't like it so its a PB&J samich for me)

    Gee, I wonder why they never need a lawyer to be one of the survivor people?

    Yeah, I am an ME (hence the name finallyME), but the word "hit" threw me off. I don't think that word means what they think it means.

    I'll answer that one for ya', finallyME.

    Lawyers are highly trained to survive. Most law schools are some of the very few places that TRY to make their students flunk out. We're hired guns who fight - and win - battles everyday. Think about it, fM. EVERYTHING we do is adversarial.

    Therefore, putting a lawyer in a survival situation with THAT colony group would be like putting Hideki Matsui in a little league game.

    The audience will have a lot more fun watching some wussie ME try to figure out how to use a Swiss Army Knife without cutting himself.
