The Military Order of the Purple Heart

For Immediate Release

Springfield, VA - October 6, 2014

Did You Ever Want to be a Television Star? MOPH has been contacted by Crybaby Media, a television production firm in New York that specializes in casting for and producing reality TV programs.

For more information on the company, please go to:  www.crybaby-media.com.

Crybaby Media has been tasked by National Geographic Channel to cast and produce a new reality series about a recently separated OIF/OEF veteran, preferably a Purple Heart recipient, who is now transitioning from military to civilian life and is trying to find themselves by traveling around the country and exploring options for what to do with the rest of their life.

The idea would be to have a film crew follow the military vet on his journey -- by foot -- across the US. The ideal guy (late 20s to early 40s) would have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Leaving their wallet behind, they would count on their survival and bartering skills for food and shelter. We want someone who has a natural curiosity for the world around them and is looking to explore everything and anything that comes their way.

We don’t want to find a guy who maybe wants to leave his life and run.  We are looking for that person who is at a point in his life where this is a necessity.  We are looking for a total transformation from episode one to the finale – both inside and out.

If you think you might be interested in being that person, please email me at: publicrelations@purpleheart.org with your bio and a photo and we will arrange for you to be interviewed for the role. 

If not interested for yourself but know someone else who fits the criteria and who might be interested, please feel free to forward this to all your friends.  If you have any further questions or concerns, I can be reached at (352) 753-5535 or by email at publicrelations@purpleheart.org. Timing is critical – this role needs to be cast NLT 15 October, 2014.

Crybaby Media is a NYC-based content development and creative packaging firm.  The company creates, casts and sells reality TV shows and digital content.  They help producers and production companies develop, cast and sell their shows, and cast talent for TV networks.  They work with non-fiction talent to help build their brands through publishing and branded entertainment, and help other companies navigate the media landscape through creative consulting.
