SciFi Channel Needs to Book a Nudist
Source: Letters to the Editor
by: Cheryl Perry
Thank you so much for your help on the phone!
As I mentioned, we are looking for a male Nudist/Naturist to participate in our upcoming show. The message we are trying to get out is that nudity is natural, nothing to be ashamed of and it doesn't matter how you look, we really are all the same... We are looking for someone to represent the "body acceptance' philosophy that Naturists live by.
A. Smith & Co. Productions has joined forces with the SciFi Channel to produce a cutting-edge new reality series called Mad Mad House, and we are looking for the stars of our show!
We are scouring the country to put together a group of outrageous, eccentric and entertaining individuals who live very alternative lifestyles. This core cast will be known as the Alts. Like royalty, the Alts will live in and reign over a mansion called Alt Manor. They will get the chance to showcase their lifestyle and demonstrate their special skills to America, but the Alts' biggest responsibility will be to choose a winner from among 12 "Joe Average" contestants who will dare to come live with them in Alt Manor. The "Joes'" job is to learn about, experience and embrace lifestyles very different from their own!
We are currently looking for people who fit into the following categories:
1. Nudist - someone who is only truly comfortable when naked and wears clothes just when absolutely necessary!
2. Vampire - a genuinely seductive creature of the night --Goth make-up is not enough!
3. Voodoo Priestess - a powerful expert in all things voodoo who knows how to conjure the loa spirits and conduct ceremonies.
4. Witch - a practicing Wiccan who can cast spells and conduct moonlit rituals.
5. Modern Primitive - a seasoned body modifier with tattoos, piercings, implants and unusual rituals like hanging himself from ceiling hooks for hours at a time.
The series will shoot for 3 weeks in November in Los Angeles. All Alts will be compensated for their appearance on the show.
Sci Fi Channel embraces all cultures, religions and lifestyles. Exploring the possibilities for harmonious co-existence among different peoples has always been at the very core of science fiction. With Mad Mad House, we seek to challenge conventional notions of 'normal' by placing people from mainstream culture into very different environments, and seeing how they fare when judged by a completely foreign set of criteria. In our show, those outside of the mainstream (the "Alternatives") are the judges.
