On occasion, we hear from a casting producer who is seeking a candidate for a television opportunity. Pollyanna Jacobs in Los Angeles sent us this notice today, and after review, it may be a good fit for one of our more adventuresome athletes (adaptive or able-bodied):

CASTING NOTICE: Looking for a host of a TV show that will explore the Amazon jungles.

Firstly, we are not looking for an actor. We are looking to cast an explorer, archaeologist, or adventurist with a great thirst for history to help host the show. This person can certainly be a hobbyist in any of these areas but he should have a thirst for adventure and a real reason to be there in the jungle doing this search, be it as a history buff, adventur quester or armchair archeologist/anthropologist (professional is fine too). The second most important thing is a zeal for adventure and a big, fun, outgoing personality. We are preferably looking for an rugged American male in his 30-40's who would thrill at the thought of this.

Locations:

Brazil (Rio & various areas in the State of Mato Grosso including Cuiaba, Canarana, Gaucho do Norte), Peru (Lima & area around Chachapoyas) (time roughly split half & half)

Dates:

Currently mid-May through first week of July. This will be an eight week shoot. We can slide a couple weeks into the summer if May is a dealbreaker for someone.

Please contact me back by May 9, 2017 at pollyannaj@gmail.com.

The inspiration of exceptional adaptive athletes like Col. Gregory Gadson encouraged Dell EMC to join as a supporting partner of World T.E.A.M. Sports' annual Face of America bicycle ride to Gettysburg. Our April 28-30 event will include nearly 160 adaptive military veterans on two routes: http://worldteamsports.org/2017/dell-emc/ #2017FOA #WeAllRideTheSameRoad #WorldTeamSports

Navy Veteran Chris Goehner saw two deployments to Iraq and as a result, now lives with Post Traumatic Stress. Chris was a member of World T.E.A.M. Sports' 2012 Warrior 100K Team riding with President George W. Bush in Palo Duro Canyon, Texas. He's featured in the President's new "Portraits of Courage" book, and in AARP The Magazine's April/May 2017 edition.
