Raw TV, the makers of the hit Discovery show Gold Rush, are searching for individuals to take part in an exciting new project.

Do you think you embody the spirit of the American pioneer? Are you fed up with the world you live in today and envisage another - better- way to live? Could you see yourself creating and leading a new community, outside the borders of society, built with the frontier grit of your forefathers? If you are passionate about your beliefs and want to share them, not only with those who join you, but also with a TV audience, I would love to talk to you.

Whether this sounds like something you are planning immediately or is a long term dream, please email your contact details and a brief description of your plans to casting@rawtelevision.co.uk.

Thank you!

Sounds just like what Paul's trying to set up! I suspect you two should talk.

Hi Paul,

Our company is based in the UK but we are actually going to be filming this series in the USA - and Montana would be an ideal location! (Although it will be the people in the show who will determine where they live and with whom.)

Let me know if you have any questions and definitely send us an email if you're even just curious. Thanks!

This is us. Whats your prospective timeline ?

We would be game to join or lead a community either way, the reason I ask is we are entertaining the idea of relocating back to FL in October to but a small piece and go off grid there.

However Montana and New Mexico are both on the radar as well if the right offer came up.

You may consider NM as it is about the most off grid friendly state I have seen so far...

Hi Mark,
Thanks so much for your response! Our perspective timeline is not set in stone yet because we are still very early in productions, but as an estimate we are looking to start shooting within the next 3-5 months over the span of anywhere from a few months to a year. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us for more information at casting@raw.co.uk. We have informational flyers and can speak to you individually!

Hope to hear from you!
