So this just came in to C and R's mail bag. Radical Media, a casting company wrote to us and said they are looking for basketball players for a reality TV show. They claim it is a "dream opportunity for highly skilled amateur and semi-pro basketball players." Here is what they are looking for:
Radical Media is a TV production company in Los Angeles. We're currently casting a new television show where we are looking for skilled basketball players, age 21 and over, who have the ability to compete at the highest level but were never able to pursue their dreams of a professional career. This is a great opportunity to give amateurs a chance to play alongside legends of the game…We’re going to choose a handful of lucky players, provide them with pro coaching and mentorship, and film them as they test their skills in a series of exciting challenges.
All qualified applicants must be over the age of 21 as of June 30, 2011.
Applicants should submit a photo and brief bio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our casting staff will contact them for further information. We are accepting applications from both men and women.
All applications must be received by June 24th.
C and R are in no way affiliated with the company Radical Media nor were paid any money for this promo, but we can relate to the line “have the ability to compete at the highest level but were never able to pursue their dreams of a professional career.” There’s gotta be a hundred stories like that out there. If you are one, apply; if you know of one, please forward. Would love to see someone from the Bay Area represent.
