From Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage --
The producers of yet another new Alaska-based reality show will hold a casting call all day Saturday at Wild West Guns in Anchorage. Their hope: Discovering people with big personalities and quirky characters to showcase on the series.
The casting call is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the gun shop, 71 Homer Drive. People who can’t make it can email their photo and a description of themselves to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The production company behind the show, Jupiter Entertainment, also produced “Sons of Guns” for Discovery Channel, said co-executive producer Hank Stepleton.
The Alaska show is a “docu-series” centered around Wild West Guns but will feature a variety of Alaska-based activities and locations. Expect a mix of hunting, gold-mining, fishing.
“I would love a crusty gold miner,” he said. “I would love an Alaskan couple who is going to get married this summer that would like to have their wedding featured.”
A middle school or high school girl who plans to go hunting with her father as a rite of passage would also work, Stepleton said. “I would love a female lumberjack.”
The show is expected to air in November on a "major cable network," Stepleton said. He refused to say which one.
The series title is also under wraps. “It will be something with 'Alaska' in it. It will be something with 'guns' in it, but right now it’s untitled," the producer said.
