Reality show casting call
Television company Off the Fence is seeking extraordinary individuals living with extreme weight for a documentary series it's developing for a major cable network. The series will explore the ways in which obesity impacts their lives, jobs and families.
The company is looking for people who are more than 100 pounds overweight, though, ideally those who are 400 pounds or more or have a BMI of more than 50.
They should be dealing with some sort of significant issue in addition to their weight -- for instance a problem like addiction, severe anxiety or obsessive behavior; a unique family situation (twins, for example) or upcoming events, such as their wedding. However, anyone who is extremely overweight and feels like he or she has a story to tell is encouraged to apply.
To apply, email itsmylifep...@gmail.com with your name, age, city and state, weight, photo and a brief explanation of the troubles you are dealing with apart from obesity.
