Jodi Friedman, Casting Director for Sirens Media and Leftfield Entertainment, recently sent out the following letter which is self-explanatory: We’re currently casting a groundbreaking new series for one of the major TV networks that will feature passionate descendants, historians, and history enthusiasts. Specifically, we are looking for individuals who want to challenge history, and are confident that the history books got something wrong. Our series will dive into an active investigation with distant relatives of notable historical figures, as well as passionate history buffs on a mission to reveal the truth about a historical event. People must have some sort of proof, whether it be a diary, photographs, documents, etc. We are looking to cover all time periods, everything from ancient Greece to Obama’s presidency – nothing is too old or too recent. If you (or someone you know) has physical evidence of something that can possibly rewrite history – and the passion prove it – we want to hear from you ASAP!
