Subject: New Series for Major US Cable Network
I’m currently producing a ground breaking new TV series for a leading US cable network. The purpose of this major series is to present to our audience compelling cases of extra- terrestrial encounters including UFO sightings and abductions.
A team of experts including two who have had encounters with ETs themselves will use a range of investigative techniques to analyse the nature of our contributor’s encounters.
The experience of our contributors with our expert team will be a very positive one.
It is not the intention of the Producers to debunk the abductees experience but instead it will provide further evidence of the potential existence of extra-terrestrials by using a range of scientific tests and other methodologies.
I wondered if I could speak to you about activity in your area. If this is something you would consider I’d really appreciate a number I can call you on.

To which I answered:
Oh Max, where do I begin.
You are the FOURTH producer to cold call contact me in the past 11 1/2 months - none of which became fruitful. I could dig into my e-mails and send you my last response a few months ago to another UK producer person (and never even heard a thanks for answering - even if my answer was certainly over the top - as this one will be).
But, I won't. I'll treat you as if this contact is different.
Of course, from the internet - much can be learned about both of our ideas and works - I've read this of yours http://www.pbshowfolio.com/maxdinunno - so, of course I know you are serious and have talent. Me however I doubt you have a handle on via either my Kindle Books - http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B008A1L2EY - my esoteric blog -http://theheavystuff.com or my nearly 800 post UFO blog - http://ufodisclosurecountdownclock.blogspot.com.
That said, I can relate to recruiting content - especially quality content or thinking.
So, let me try to relate the best answer to your inquiry and how I personally could or could not possibly help your search and potential TV show.
First, I note your `in advance' notification about respecting the `experiencer' - I think I should tell you THEY ALL SAY THAT. Oh, and NO ONE DOES IT --------- as the ideas of the powers that be in TV ultimately shape the outcome of the content and it isn't a pretty picture. I could tell you stories about TV producers - well, actually I'm pretty sure I TELL a story in this interview I gave to Kate Valentine on January 18th, 2013 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVVFkQeCQ30. It's not a pretty picture of their intelligence. My insults of which don't go over well.
Now, to the reality of your desires to produce a real valid respectful TV show about the ParaNormal - and your executive desires to make sure that NOT TOO MANY folks take it too seriously at the end of the program.
Anyway, the way I COULD help you would be - of course - I have contacts with folks who have had VERY paranormal experiences. I myself have had very anomalous experiences and perceptions. I know others in the blogging arena who know WAY more of these folks than I do - but, I DO know some of the best IMO. Including the `Jerusalem Orb' guy and the `Cute Feather Orb' woman. .................... But, in all honesty, my input about my ideas about the anomalous would strip any other attribute I could provide.........and I know you have no interest in a talking head who is talking big time sense about what are the REAL UFO issues............... You could dig into the last couple hundred posts on UDCC to find out more about what the real issues are.
Oh, BTW, the issues are NOT about alien abduction, which is being more discredited all the time as a `real' event - in the phenomenological structure. Indeed, the premise is a turn off on the face of it. IF you want to read about `alien encounters' look in my sidebar at UDCC http://www.ufoinfo.com/humanoid/index.shtml here's a few thousand for you. And, what similarities do you see?
NIDS already did the `scientific' side of `alien contact' - the results of your `science' angle will be the same. And, you will still not have a smidgen of insight into the real slippery slope of now and real which is MUCH more complex that having already primed ET experiencers proving this or that -- or much more likely the editing will show no proof of anything. Of course.
So, I'm a tougher cookie. I COULD help you, but, have less than any faith that even the premise of your show is going to work. Indeed, MAX, the REAL thing is that some of us, IMO, are kinda `getting it' --- about anomalous phenomena - which includes as part of it UFO's and their whole perception structure. I even have a close new contact, a radio engineer who insists that ET's communicate via Modulated Gravity Waves. But, why should I subject them to a show that will ultimately be targeted at either the wo-wo factor or nutcase factor. And with NO analysis of the subjective nature of what may be occurring.
Sorry to express what many in the paraNormal area are currently feeling about the TV medium.
So, as you can see, I still gave you a thought out response - now, if you're brave this is what you could do to impress me (as opposed to the other three) - spend some time on my blog, read the intro to my books, listen to my latest radio interview.
Then, if you are brave and still want to talk with me - you can call me at 678-467-8650.
PS - why not direct this whole positioning into being something other than `alien encounters' - or is only the extreme end something that will stir the natives anymore?
(something you should have known via the search you performed to send your cold call contact (which almost didn't get opened as it had no reference to my name).
Then, today, I decided to see if Max had been successful in pulling together the show - nope:
BTW, Max did get back with me with this:
I appreciate all you’ve said in your email and sorry to hear you’ve had such bad experiences with other producers.
I will say again the aim of this series is definitely not to insult anyone or make them come across as crazy. The reason why we are looking at the notion of people who have had encounters is due to the fact that two of our presenters have had a lifetime of close contact –however they have experienced it in very different ways- and it is through this prism of their own experiences that they will be looking at other contact cases.
Thanks once again for taking the time to reply to me and I hope when the series is broadcast you will find it engaging rather than offensive.
And, I concluded with this:
I appreciate you getting back with me - you are more than welcome to let me know when the series premiers - and best of luck with that scientific evidence from your alien abduction cases.
I'm not the least bit surprised of being scared of putting some real analysis on the TV screen - the can of worms is hardly something the execs want to open. BTW, how is it that you are going to EXPLAIN the vast differences in perceptions and interactions to your audience? Oh, that's right - the science is going to dictate it.
Thanks for being a Clocker!
