Casting Call - The Expats - Bangkok

Hi all,

We are producing the pilot for a planned reality television series for a regional channel in Asia. The Expats - Bangkok, will follow the lives of a group of 6 individuals living abroad as foreign nationals. The idea is to capture the somewhat exceptional lifestyles of expatriates abroad as well as their reactions to more “local” and juxtaposed situations, i.e. volunteering for a day in local orphanage, visiting compatriots locked up in a Thai prison, undertaking a local language or cooking course, etc.

We are looking for 6 individuals/characters in Bangkok who will be willing to participate in the full 13-episode series, beyond the shooting of the pilot. This is providing that the network does, indeed, pick up the full series and after possible tweaks to the format, design and possibly even casting are made based on the results of the pilot.

The channels are suggesting that we limit the “mix” of nationalities so that we have ample British/American/Australian characters in order to appeal to the significant home markets of those characters. However, we do believe it depends on the strength of the characters and who present themselves as willing and interested to participate. So, we hope to see Singaporeans, Filipinos, S. Asians. . . as we’ve put in the casting call document, any foreign national living legally in Bangkok.

If you know expats within your professional and social circles who you feel might be interested in participating in the pilot and potentially the full 13-episode series, please feel free to send this information, including the attached document giving further details, along to them. Would you please consider spreading the word about the casting call through your social media networks, such as on Facebook and Twitter?

At the least, come along to the casting call at the British Club on Friday, 6 December from 10am to 1pm to meet the rest of our production team, crew and editors (a few of these are reflected on the show’s ‘pilot’ website, and we’ll add the camera crew and editors there soon).

I’m happy to give you more details if you’re interested.

Best regards,
Natasha Sookmongkol
