My name is Danielle and I am a Casting Associate for the Outdoor Channel’s New Expedition Competition Series – The Brigade.

We are combing the continent (USA and Canada) in search of brave men and women to join the ultimate adventure!! Our application site is now open and we’re hoping that either yourself or anyone you may know within the Georgia Canoeing Association might be interested in applying?  

A little about the show:

The Brigade will retrace an epic 2600-mile fur trade route. This historic route links

waterways from the coast of Oregon to the icy shores of Hudson Bay – all self-navigated – all self-propelled.

This is an expedition that can’t be tackled alone. THE BRIGADE must work together to survive, battling fierce whitewater, portaging over mountains, hunting and fishing for sustenance. Every team member is crucial to success.

There are no eliminations. This cooperative competition relies on collective strength to hang on against the odds. Those who complete the expedition in the time allotted will share the prize money.

We need adventurers:

 With expedition experience

 Strong paddling skills

 Multi-skilled in outdoor abilities

 Possess willpower, strength and determination

 Ready to take on an epic cross-continent expedition that has not been attempted in 150
