Default Seeking Survival Experts/Preppers for New TV Show!


My name is Stephanie Alger and Im a Casting Producer with Pilgrim Studios, a production company based in Los Angeles. Were probably best known for our show Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe.

Im emailing you today about an exciting new show that were working on about people with survival shelters. On our show, well invite participants to live in their shelters for a few weeks and film it. Wed provide a stipend AND stock the shelter, so its a great opportunity to test your level of preparation!

Feel free to email me at SALGER@PILGRIMSTIDIOS.COM for more info!


If you think you would be a good candidate for the show send an email to SALGER@PILGRIMSTUDIOS.COM with your name, city/state, phone number, a recent photo of yourself and your shelter/bunker!

Hi Stephanie,

Consider the concept of the "gray man" for your show. Hiding in plain sight. Not just a run-of-the-mill survivalist.

Good luck, I like 'Dirty Jobs", he seems like an ordinary Joe.

The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded. Charles-Louis de Secondat (1689-1755) Baron de Montesquieu

In America, freedom and justice have always come from the ballot box, the jury box, and when that fails, the cartridge box.

Not many of us have the bread to capitalize on the kind of shelter/bunker which would be of interest to your viewers. Those who do have them, are very hush, hush about them and their whereabouts.

Stephanie, you need to speak with member fighterpilot562. The shelter is known as 'The Basement' and is fully stocked.

Let us know if you're interested. Send message to with pics of abs.

Movement is life. Hunker down/shelter = death. Show is fail from the get go.
