    Storm chasers wanted for reality series

    Received a call from a production company this afternoon needing chasers for a new eight-part reality series. They are not looking for "extreme" chasers looking to get 10 minutes of fame and then get killed. Rather they want real chasers from all walks of life (except tour groups --which have already been covered extensively) whom show the best of what chasing is about. If you are interested and plan to be out chasing in the next couple of weeks take a look at the message below.

    Original Productions, the company that produces "The Deadliest Catch" and "Ice Road Truckers" is starting up a new show called, "Tornado Road," for NBC. We will be following storm chasers as they pursue storms in Tornado Alley this season.


    We're aware that it's the middle of tornado season so we are rushing to cast this show and start shooting as early as next week. We are trying to find experienced storm chasers with a passion for extreme weather and who have dynamic personalities. It's a tall order considering our time frame. I really appreciate your help in finding the right people for our show. Please forward any names to me to at this e-mail address.

    Or, you can have them call me directly at 818-481-8874. The clock is ticking loudly so any interested people need to contact me ASAP.

    They might be able to get some good stuff today.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I've always wanted to chase storms but I don't think I am quite qualified yet.

    I've ALWAYS wanted to get involved in storm chasing! I wished I'd pursued this instead of what I do now....stupid engineering.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Storm chasers wanted for reality series

    The filming season should have started months ago this year. Tennessee has had the most tornados to date. It was probably from all that air flowing out of Kentucky this last week.

    I would guess that she'll have some things that need done/signed but this is all the info we received.

    So you're more afraid of your wife than a tornado? I'm good with that...

    So I am assuming this show is going to be filled with people who are "between jobs" given they are beginning to shoot almost immediately.

    Re: Storm chasers wanted for reality series

    How does one get involved in storm chasing? I would quickly trade my current position for one in that field. However, I have no qualifications for that.
