Scuba Divers Wanted for Possible TV ShowHere is the notice I recently received:

I am casting/development producer at Crybaby Media currently doing a search for... get ready for it.......Paranormal Divers!! That’s right we are looking to create a team that will search historic ship wrecks and strange places where weird occurrences seem to keep happening (think Bermuda triangle).

We are looking for crusty sea people with an attitude and some belief in the paranormal. Specifically all you oil rigging and docking divers. Easy right? At the end of the day we are looking for characters with a point of view! So if this is you or you know it is - we want to talk to you and hear your story.

Looking to create a team of 5. Divers if selected would be compensated for there time. Actual time commitment is TBD.

If interested - please reply with a picture and description of yourself - and we will be in touch. Thanks so much and look forward to talking!



Contact: Bryan Severance (bryan [-at-] crybaby-media.com)



If you make it on the show, make sure to give a shout out to DiveBuddy once in a while. And I might even provide you with some t-shirts to wear :)

Who cares what channel.. you get to dive and get paid for it.. woo hoo!

The whole idea sounds like lots of FUN!!! I know I’d do these dives for T.V. Let’s just hope everyone stays safe.

Let me guess...."History" channel? Wait...no aliens. Must be Discovery, if they can find time between moonshine, pawn, auction, and drama based car building shows.

syfy channel
Will - 3/16/2013 7:50 AM
I should have known....SyFy. It will fit in well with their currently "ghost" heavy lineup. :-)

all my favs!

How did you contact, are they going to do any of the North Atlantic wrecks?
JimmyScherrer - 3/15/2013 7:07 PM
I was in contact with Bryan via Skype. If you know of "creepy, strange, haunted, ET infested, etc." North Atlantic wrecks, please share them to this thread or http://www.divebuddy.com/forum_topic.aspx?ForumID=26645&MemID=20778

I was in contact with Bryan earlier today via Skype. He seems to be a nice enough chap. We exchanged ideas about the show. It all sounds like lots of fun, and might even make for some great television.

A question for all dive buddies... What creepy, strange, haunted, ET infested, etc. dive sites have any of you heard of?

So far I’ve thought of: Lake Elizabeth, California... The Ghost Fleet in the Turk Lagoon and the Alkimos in Western Austraila. I’m still researching a few others. As with any dive, SAFETY is the top priority! Please remember, we are talking about scuba diving, not submarines, bathyspheres, and R.O.V.s

Dude, post this question as a new forum topic also.
JimmyScherrer - 3/08/2013 5:36 PM
Greg, Honestly, I’m not real sure what category this fits into. So, I posted it in "General" Please, check it out and change as needed. Thank you!
JMorales - 3/08/2013 3:37 PM
I have also sent an email of intent to them, and will keep everyone posted on any developments.
Progrower - 3/07/2013 10:59 AM
This is all going to be a reality show. We all know how reality shows are realistic.LOL
Greg - 3/07/2013 11:09 AM
Oh yeah, I’m sure they’ll plan some out-of-air scenarios to make it more dramatic :)
JimmyScherrer - 3/07/2013 7:12 AM
Thank you Greg! I’ll be in contact with Bryan today..... I’ll update this thread with any reply from him or crybaby media.... The whole idea sounds like alot of fun :)
Greg - 3/07/2013 8:01 AM
Sweet! Good luck.
Eve - 3/07/2013 8:04 AM
Keep us posted so we will all know if we will have a movie star divebuddy.
Progrower - 3/06/2013 3:29 PM
Can we nominate divers.LOL
Greg - 3/06/2013 3:41 PM
Doubt it, but it’s not my gig. Contact Crybaby Media and ask them.
Greg - 3/06/2013 2:34 PM
BTW, DiveBuddy has no affiliation with any of this. Someone from Crybaby Media just contacted me and asked if I knew of any scuba divers that would be interested. I told them I knew a couple divers and that I’d post something about it ;)
Eve - 3/06/2013 2:36 PM
Yup I guess you do know one or 2 divers. : )
RichKeller - 3/06/2013 2:29 PM
As long as I get creative approval then I am in!
Greg - 3/06/2013 2:32 PM
You’re already starting to be an ass, you sound perfect for the job! :)
