NOW CASTING: International students for a major network TV series: Are you an international student with an education visa? Did you recently meet a special someone and fall in love while studying abroad? Are you afraid to tell your new-found love that your visa will expire once you graduate? I am casting a docu-series for a major television network about newly formed couples who face a looming deadline as their visa expires. If you are in a relationship with someone you met abroad or know a couple in a situation like I’ve described, I want to hear from you! If you’re interested in hearing more, please direct message me with a few sentences about why you would be good for a concept like this. All submissions are confidential and commitment-free.
