A new veteran-related television show is seeking Alaska veterans to feature in an upcoming show. Since roughly one in 10 Alaskans is a veteran, this should be a slam dunk for the show’s producers.
The show’s casting company seeks Alaskan veterans, veterans families, veteran owned businesses, and veterans organizations for a show that will share the stories of veterans and their families who need a little help now that they are back in civilian society.
“We want to help a deserving veteran and their family and in the process also find a way to help the community they live in as well. It could be as simple as replacing a broken fridge to as complicated as helping them deal with the government or maybe we build a fantastic playhouse for their kids and also build a playground for the town they live in. We are hoping to grant some wishes while telling some amazing stories,” said Russell Berman, casting associate.
Suzanne Downing had careers in business and journalism before serving as the Director of Faith and Community-based Initiatives for Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and returning to Alaska to serve as speechwriter for Gov. Sean Parnell. Born on the Oregon coast, she moved to Alaska in 1969.
