DOCUMENTARY SERIES - Ex-pats in trouble abroad

Recommended Posts

Guest WildPictures



Are you a British ex pat in trouble abroad? If so you might be right for a brand new series we are making.


We are looking for a range of diverse British ex-pats in Spain, Florida, Australia etc who are struggling in this economic down turn or just generally finding things hard.


Maybe your business is struggling, or the value of your home has dropped or savings worth a lot less?


Or maybe you’re just finding other things harder than you ever expected compared to dear old Blighty? e.g. lack of close family nearby, tired of beach-apartment-beach life, heat etc. How has it affected your life, relationships etc? Where is paradise for you?


We are always on the look-out too for potential stories that are happening or unfolding now over the next few months e.g. an ex-pat about to try or do something new – this could be anything from an ingenious game-plan to survive the recession in their adopted country to those planning to repatriate back to the UK.


WE DO WANT LIGHT AND SHADE!! Love to hear more about your situation and any plans or ideas you have up your sleeve to triumph over adversity..


So we are looking for stories like these:


- Ex-pat Brits who are staying put and have a new game-plan to survive the recession..

- Ex-pats who now want to repatriate and return home to the UK

- Ex-pats who have found living abroad much harder than anticipated or found themselves in an unexpected situation abroad e.g. recently divorced, missing the UK, the lingo too tricky, lonely, feeling you're never quite at home

- Ex-pats who have sold up back home, and have no choice but to stick it out.


ABOUT US: I work for a documentary company in North London called Wild Pictures. In brief, we have a strong reputation in factual UK programming. You may have seen some of our stuff - we make the ITV1 prisons series - Strangeways, Holloway, Wormwood Scrubs as well as strong, well-made series on the Fraud Squad, Baby Hospital and Smugglers.


We'd love to hear from you at this stage, whatever your story.


To find out more, please send a brief para about your situation and PM us


We look forward to hearing from you.
