TV show- "Below Deck"

From and e-mail of one of the crew newspapers-A casting agency in Los Angeles is looking for yachties for a new reality TV series called “Below Deck.” They can’t release any details about the producer or the network, but Gladys at ****** Casting (+1 ***-***-**** ext. 309) assures us it’s legit. Auditions are being held via Skype for the following paid positions: captain, mate, chef, stew, engineer and deckhand. Application deadline is Aug. 11; the show will tape for six weeks in September and October.
This should be pretty interesting!

It sounds like a nautical version of "Upstairs, Downstairs".. Presumably it won't be as stuffy as normal PBS fare.

Hi,

A TV Show ah?

What about one called "As the Sheets Stiffen" - This would have an appeal to blowboaters and stink potters together and could replicate the real life shenanigans above and below deck.

Lol!!! The title suggests this could be a late night show, with an 18+ rating

If catfights and fake breasts are involved, it might be worth a look. There isn't anything real about any of those housewives.

There's not much real in Hollywood at all, so I doubt this show will be much like our reality.

I agree and bad publicity that the industry doesn't need

I thought they were filming in April & May. When was this previous post written?? Or maybe that was for the crew, & now it's different for the passengers... ?
