Pixcom Productions is casting a series for a major television network that is currently in development. They are looking for people between the ages of 18 and 25 with a disability who are interested in working in the restaurant industry. Here is a statement they recently released:
"The series will feature a group of individuals with disabilities who are eager to find work in the restaurant industry, but may have struggled to do so. They will be put through a training course (4 weeks) with a top chef in order to learn the skills needed to work in a restaurant and set them up to enter the workforce.
We are looking to cast people with a wide range of disabilities, ideally people who are starting out in their careers (18 - 25 years old). We are looking for people who have a positive attitude, an outgoing personality, and who would be capable of working long days and can communicate effectively. They can be located anywhere across the country.
Participants selected will not be paid a salary but will get to undergo the 4-week training and all expenses (travel, accommodations, etc.) will be covered. Selected participants will be required to move to the site of filming (site not yet determined) for the 4 weeks, and will share accommodations with other participants. We are looking at about 10-12 people being involved in this series.
