Documentary Series Wants Your Infested Apartment!

Posted on: January 25th, 2011 at 9:32 am by

A “prominent nonfiction TV network” is apparently looking to air a new series about exterminators in New York City. As such, producers are seeking potential cases of pest infestation throughout the Five Boroughs.  The Lower East Side might be a shoe-in for at least a few episodes!

We received the following email casting call from a producer at Optomen Productions, who will be overseeing the project.  This all sounds vaguely familiar, no? Anyhoo, here’s the skinny:

A new documentary science series on a prominent non-fiction TV Network is looking to solve pest problems and infestations in all 5 boroughs. They’ll set you up with an accredited local pest control company that will tackle your pest problem FOR FREE, and follow the process of making your home or business pest-free. They’re looking for severe pest infestations of any kind, from cockroaches and bedbugs to rats and raccoons. No infestation is too severe for their team. All correspondence will be kept strictly confidential AND they won’t even need to mention or show the name or location of your business or home/apt. This is a great opportunity to have some of the best experts in the business put an end to your infestation.

If Interested, please send an email to PestExterminatorCasting@gmail.com with a brief description of your infestation along with any photos/documentation of the problem (if possible). In the subject line of the email, please indicate what kind of pest you’re having a problem with.
