So, this is pretty exciting.
I’ve recently been in touch with producers of a forthcoming television documentary on childhood obesity and I was asked if I could help them find participants. I can’t share any specifics, but from my phone conversations I believe the program will not be cheap or exploitative in any way, and that your child’s (and your) story will be handled with sensitivity.
Here are the details:
An Emmy-award-winning team at a highly regarded TV company is looking for subjects for a documentary on childhood obesity. They are hoping to find the family of an overweight middle school or high school student that is concerned about their child’s weight and working to improve the healthfulness and quality of the food available in the school cafeteria, even if the parents and the school district are just getting started on this quest.They would like to speak with interested parents as soon as possible. Please email the producers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wind up submitting your story and getting chosen, do let me know!
