New Cooking show pilot starring: YOUR immigrant GRANDMA!
CASTING GRANDMA! ***$100 finders fee for anyone who introduces us to someone we end up casting**** Well your immigrant grandma who’s ALWAYS COOKING dishes from her homeland for her grandkids, the neighbors, etc.
This is for a new food show pilot with a well known producer attached, so it has promise; we just need the right ladies to lead it!!!
We want someone 45-85 with BIG outgoing personalities who are often seen smiling, laughing and have open hearts to other cultures .
We would prefer ladies who still have their accent from their home country.
Casting one in NYC METRO area AND one in DC METRO area .
Shooting one day middle of September, ideally in her house/kitchen cooking a meal as she does with close family/friends. We can find another kitchen to shoot if her place is too small or unavailable.
This is a $PAID$ opportunity and will be worth her time.
I personally know the creator and he will make sure she is well taken care of and respected. If you or (more likely) your mother/grandmother or someone you know fits this description please submit them ASAP!
Send an email to email@example.com with her
name, country of origin and NYC METRO OR DC METRO in the subject line.
In the body give us her name, where she is from originally, and a bit of background about how she likes to cook, who she is, what she is passionate about...etc.
Please include a few current pictures of her and if possible and available a picture of her kitchen.
Include your relation to her and your contact info.
If you will see her this weekend and want to grab a quick video 2 minutes or less have her talk about where she is from and her passion for cooking that would be a very welcome bonus but is not required yet at this stage.
Remember to shoot it in landscape mode with your phone. Thanks for your ideas and submissions.
