Producers Seeking Truck Drivers For TV Shows

Have you always wanted to show the world how well you can drive a rig? Here is your chance. According to Overdrive Magazine, the search is on for truckers and family-owned trucking companies for two new proposed TV shows. One is related to the cable TV reality show, Ice Road Truckers. The second casting call is for drivers and family-owned trucking companies who specialize in oversized hauling.
According to the press release, the producers would like to find “family-owned businesses who have experience shipping large and obscure items over dynamic terrain.” If this sounds interesting, you can email for more information.
The new shows are affiliated with the producers of Ice Road Truckers and Bobcat Partners, which include Jeff Conroy and Thom Beers, both of whom were executives at Original Productions, which produced Ice Road Truckers for The History Channel. Beers was the narrator for the series, which lasted 138 episodes. Conroy was co-executive producer of Ice Road Truckers and has also been involved with Deadliest Catch, Ax Men, and Storage Wars. Sara Bernard, former general manager at Huffington Post and director of online engagement in the Obama White House, is also part of the Bobcat Partners team.

According to Overdrive, fans of the long-running TV series Ice Road Truckers may be getting their hopes up for a return of the show. The creators, however, have not said anything certain regarding the return of Ice Road Truckers. When it was first created, the casting call for Ice Road Truckers asked for women truck drivers and/or truck company owners. The preference was for drivers in their 30s-50s. Ice Road Truckers debuted June 17, 2007 and ran until Nov. 9, 2017.

The second casting call comes from Bobcat Studios, creators of Deadliest Catch. Their ads have been appearing on social media that targets truckers with “years of experience driving an 18-wheeler.” It is said that producers are hoping to create a competition series, and want  “to find the most skilled truckers to compete in a series of events to show off their trucker skills.” The casting call says that drivers interested in being on the show will be put through a series of obstacle courses and tasks.
