    Casting for a New TV Show

    My name is Casey and I'm a development coordinator for an LA-based television production company.

    We're in the process of conducting research for a new show whose development was requested by a major TV network. We're on the lookout for any currently operating treasure hunters, shipwreck finders, or marine salvagers. Individual hobbyists, small teams, or small businesses are all accepted!

    We're looking for anyone operating in the Caribbean Ocean (ideally based in Florida, the Bahamas, or the Dominican Republic). If you fit that bill, or know anyone who does, please encourage them to reach out!

    Please contact us at acecasting2018@gmail.com. Please include a little bit about yourself, some of your notable finds, and what equipment you own/use. If you could also include links to your social media (if you have any) or any photos/videos of you in action, that would be super helpful.

    Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from all of you! Please feel free to share this with others, and please reach out with any questions you may have.

    ~Casey

    Since salvaging is illegal in the DR and Bahamas, Florida is all that meets your requirements. There are a number of salvors working on the 1715 fleet you might speak with.

    Also, these guys are currently salvaging the Pulaski off NC, and have plans for more projects.

    Welcome to the forum Casey. The folks here are pretty sharp, and I find your invitation alarmingly vague. Maybe if you gave more precise info about yourself, you would receive some vague responses. Is this a pay to play casting company? I hear they're quite popular in L.A.

    We love details here, photos, history.

The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Yes, welcome to the land of disbelief. And sometimes real belief! I do not do water. It's too wet, but good luck.

    A good suggestion would be to travel to Sebastian, Florida and visit the local museums and marinas, see some salvage boats and meet the "characters" that make it happen. It's kind of a closed society and even among the locals there are separate "tribes".

    Darren is correct above...the only folks working in the Bahamas are working on a "Search and Identify" sort of unofficial permit as close as I can tell. If you have 30 million USD to invest, that gets you in the club. Caribbean Pirate Gold and Cooper's Treasure have filmed there, but there are no active, legal salvage operations as far as the public knows.
    The DR is still closed up like a cold clam as of last report...which was about 4 PM yesterday.
    Very briefly - There are only a couple of active salvors in Florida who are not subcontractors with either Queen's Jewels or Mel Fisher's Treasures that are actually working...
    For the most part you'll need to deal with those two entities.
    If you want to film any active treasure salvage boats in Florida you have to contact:
    For the Treasure Coast...
    1715 Fleet - Queen's Jewels LLC is the custodian of the 1715 wreck sites... all of them. Everyone working on the 1715 Fleet is a subcontractor with them.
    The first thing you need to do is talk to John Brandon, Operations Manager w/ 1715 Fleet - Queen's Jewels LLC. Any agreements for filming have to be approved by him.
    https://www.1715treasurefleet.com/.
    PLEASE NOTE...there is almost no salvage activity on the Treasure Coast except from May to September or so and no...we can't work to anyone's shooting schedule. All salvage operations are completely ruled by the weather.
    For most everything in the Keys, you'll need to talk to the folks at https://www.melfisher.com/default.html
    They've been doing quite a lot of TV lately.
    If you get an agreement with Queen's Jewels or a signed permit for either the Bahamas or the Dominican Republic, bring your checkbook and your lawyer to Sebastian.
    There will be money involved, but we'll get you all squared away.
    Search the posts in the forum. Check our Facebook. There is much to learn from.
    We also have the 11th Annual Treasure Hunter's Cookout on April 27th, 2019. A good opportunity to meet the people that you seek.
