Default Wanna be on BBC? here's your chance!

This just in...

Quote:
My name is Scott Goldstein and I am a Casting Director for the company behind the hit car show Top Gear. I am writing you because we are currently casting a brand new series and we are searching for outgoing, fun loving car enthusiasts!


The shows name is “Mud, Sweat and Gears” and it will give car enthusiasts the ultimate one of a kind experience: to modify and race a car that they design. We are looking for teams of two who will work alongside one another in order create and drive their kick ass car!


I am writing you with the hopes you may be able to email this information out your club members, or post it on your Facebook page. I think this is an opportunity that anyone passionate about cars would love!


Attached is a flyer with all the shows casting information. We are doing interviews now, and are set to begin filming in the next two months. If any of your clubs members are interested they must respond to the information asked for in the flyer ASAP. The great thing is we are interviewing potential teams via Skype. Thus not posing a huge inconvenience to anyone who would like to audition.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at anytime.


Thank you so much,




Scott Goldstein Casting Director

I'd carry Marco and Kevin's bags to the vent just to be a fly on the wall with those two.

Is this thing really legit? Seems a little fishy to me since they ask for so personal information such as name and contact info. I work in the fraud department at a credit union and see similar fraud everyday. Don't get me wrong this really seems like a sweet deal, but whenever it seems too good to be true it always is. Plus it doesn't seems like there is anything from BBC or anything I can find online stating this is legitimate. Just my 2 cents.

I found a discussion online about this (from 2012):
Quote:
When they film the Top Gear shows here at the old El Toro base, all the emails I get for audience stuff is gmail as well. From being at the productions, it sounds like BBC is funding/producing the american version but the production company is a US outfit. None of the releases or stuff you sign has BBC listed on it anywhere. That's pretty much true of any TV show. Very few if any are produced by the actual network that broadcasts it.
I'm betting it's legit. It probably wouldn't be a risk to contact them, at least.
