Subject: HGTV’s All American Handyman is Coming to DC for Season 3!

Hi!

We are currently casting for season 3 and would like to inform you and your staff/co-workers that we will be holding an open casting call in DC on Saturday, January 28, 2012.

We are in search of the “go to” person when it comes to quick fixes; a problem solver, someone who knows a little bit about everything when it comes to handiwork around the house! Essentially, we are looking for highly skilled men and women from all different backgrounds and careers that have the personality and DIY knowledge to compete in a handyman competition.

I have attached a copy of our flyer that further details what we are looking for. Please feel free to post the flyer, publish the information on your website or forward it on to anyone you think may be interested. Any help in spreading the word about our search would be greatly appreciated!
