Production Company Seeking Technicians for RV Makeover Show
“The show is going to be about making RV owners’ dreams come true. They’ve got an old RV and they have a dream for what it might look like. We’re going to borrow it from them, turn into something incredible, and give it back to them,” said Greg Glass, president of the production company Brentwood Communication International Inc. (BCII). “If there are people that would like to be a part of this build team of technicians, we would like to find them.”
Shooting for the show will take place in San Fernando Valley, Calif. There’s no deadline for RV techs to apply for the show, but Glass told RV PRO applications should be completed as soon as possible.
“Our build team will probably have a dozen people. We’re going to have (techs) who are jacks of all trades, and then we’ll probably have A/V specialists, a plumbing specialist, an electrical specialist, and a couple of interior specialists,” Glass said. “We’ll have a well-rounded team so that they can get the work done quickly. We’re going to try to remodel eight RVs in 16 weeks.”
Glass said that techs who do the show will work fulltime for 16 weeks and the job could last even longer if more episodes are desired by The Travel Channel. The pay for techs on the show will be “commensurate” or “standard in the range” of what RV techs earn in their regular jobs, Glass said.
“They’re going to be on TV so they need to have a good personality,” he said. “The techs need be able to look at the camera and talk about what they’re working on and talk about the challenges that they’re working on. They really need to be able to convey to the audience about the challenges and the skill set that it takes to gut an RV and remodel it from the inside out. It’s going to be 16 weeks of hard work.”
BCII currently produces Extreme RVs on The Travel Channel, however, Glass said his fledgling RV show concept would be more similar to another show by the company called Overhaulin’, which appeared on cable TV channel TLC from 2004-2009.
“We think it’ll be pretty popular when RV owners around the country see what we’re doing,” Glass said. “I suspect it’ll be some pretty compelling television for the RV enthusiast.”
