I get a decent amount of email from readers, media, and the like but I have to say this is the first time I've been contacted by a Casting Director of a major TV production company.
Zodiak USA is the company behind shows like Wife Swap, Secret Millionaire, Being Human, Hardcore Pawn, and many others. After getting the details from Casting Director Bert and talking with him over the phone, I volunteered StockTradingToGo to help spread the word on casting for a brand new show being produced.
Below is Bert's email he sent me alongside a casting notice flyer. Remember though, Bert and his team are only looking for independent traders in the New York area. If you make your living off the market then contact Bert for an opportunity to cast for the show.
We are currently casting a new TV show and are on the lookout for independent traders to be a part of it.
The show is produced by Zodiak USA (Wife Swap, Secret Millionaire, etc) and has a similar feel to those shows. For this one, we plan on taking a successful trader and matching him up with a person who is very much his/her opposite. The two would host one another in their lives, hopefully gaining a little perspective and learning a little something along the way.
Most folks working for the big firms and banks aren't really allowed to do this sort of media, but I'm hoping that independent people may be interested. If you, or someone you know, might want more information about the project, I'd love to fill you in on all the details.
Let me know what you think. If you're interested, give me a call or send me an email and we can discuss further.
Thanks for your time,
If you are interested contact Bert (his email address is listed on the casting notice flyer). Good luck!
