A Solicitation

I got this a while back:

Michelle Reindal []


I am a producer working with a major network, and I’m casting for a television show about survivalists. You’ve most likely been contacted by other producers as well, as a lot of companies are clamoring for this kind of show.

I realize that the ideas at the core of survivalism don’t really coincide with appearing on national television, however, I think it’s an opportunity to get your voice heard. For people to hear what you believe, why you believe it, and why other people should be preparing. There are a lot of misconceptions about survivalists, and it’s going to take one person to make a difference and go on national television and get other people to take part in your cause.

This show will be 30 minutes, and will feature two survivalists. We will talk to you and get a look at your preparations/bunker/guns/cave/etc, and then we will bring in a survivalist expert to evaluate what you’ve done so far, to see how long you’ll really survive if a catastrophe hit.

If you’re interested, or know someone who may be, please reply and let me know. I’ve attached a questionnaire and some video instructions, for if you want to apply to be on the show.

Thank you for your time,

Michelle | producer | screaming flea productions

I went to their website (did a web search for it) I didn't find any mention of this person being on staff. Perhaps an oversight on their webmasters part.

I didn't bother to reply.


  1. I got the same thing, more than once. I delete 'em.

  2. So....they want you to expose all of your preps, guns, and location to the public via the boob tube, then have some so-called "expert" tell you what you are supposedly doing wrong.

    Do they understand the meaning of "Pound Sand"?

  3. FWIW, Michelle Reindal is listed on IMDB with two shows that are part of the prodco's ( ) list from their site.

  4. Anonymous, that for giving us that information. You must have spent more time than I have researching this info, or had previous knowledge.

    It is unfortunate that we must be so closed mouthed about or preps, but I fear the JBT's already have more on us than we realize.

  5. I think it would be possible to create a 1/2 hour TV show that would inform the public and introduce prepping in a positive way. I doubt anyone connected with TV or Hollywood have any desire to do this and the result would instead be a hatchet job intended to make us all look like nuts.

  6. Maybe we can get Rawles to star in it.

  7. Get these all the time. Last one was more "are you or someone you know hoarding guns for a survival situation...TV show blah blah producer blah blah".

    Delete. OpSec!
