Seeking two HOSTS for Chicago-based architecture reality TV show.
Produced by faculty and students at DePaul University, URBAN EXPLORERS is a reality/documentary show about the history of buildings in Chicago. The show will feature buildings which have had multiple identities throughout their existence. For example, the Pickwick Place location of the Asado coffee shop used to be a stable, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel used to be a sports club frequented by Olympic medalists and the Trenchermen building in Wicker Park used to be a Russian bath house.
SEEKING TWO HOSTS:
An Architectural Enthusiast: “The Stuffy One.” Age 22+, all ethnicities. This host will focus on architecture and design, the history of a building’s ownership changes and renovations. For example, this host might discuss the reconstruction and remodeling needed to turn a bath house into a restaurant or the tile work which has endured since the building was first erected.
A Cultural Enthusiast: “The Fun One.” Age 22+, all ethnicities. This host will focus on the role a building has played in neighborhood social dynamics and the everyday lives of residents and locals, both throughout history and today. For example, this host might discuss the demographics of the Chicago Athletic Association’s clientele over time or provide information about who may have frequented Russian bath houses in the 1920s.
Because this project is being done through DePaul, much of the research for the pilot episode is already completed. Hosts will be asked to share their expertise, but will not be asked to bear the burden of research. Hosts will receive a stipend for their time. We aim to shoot the first episode this spring. If you are interested or have any questions, please email Professor Nathan DeWitt at Ndewitt@depaul.edu for questions or to set up a meeting with the producers.
