Sorry, Alaska, but reality TV isn't quite finished with you yet. A production company is currently seeking "great Alaskan men and women" who are interested in paranormal activity in the state. In particular, the company is seeking Alaskans with stereotypically "Alaskan" professions. So if you're a gold miner or a park ranger who has a unique tie to the other world, you may be just who they're looking for.

Here's the full casting call:

Are you a true Alaskan with an interest in the spooky, creepy and unexplained? A new television show is looking for people that live or work in Alaska who also find the paranormal world irresistible.

Are you a logger that’s seen existence of Big Foot and want to investigate further?

Are you a fisherman that knows where all the best ghost-hunting spots are?

Are you a native Alaskan with deep-rooted beliefs in the spirit world and native legends?

Do you love Alaska? I mean, do you really LOVE Alaska? Then you might be just what we're looking for!

If you are a rugged Alaskan with a thirst for adventure then we want to hear from you! A keen interest in ghosts, UFO’s, cryptid monsters or the supernatural is a MUST. So, whether you are an experienced paranormal investigator or a newbie who wants to find out what’s REALLY out there, you could be the star of the next great paranormal adventure show. 

To be considered, please email us at CastingSHP(at)gmail.com with the subject line: "True Alaskan." All inquiries MUST include 3-5 photos, a brief bio and any video you might have. 

It's maybe not the worst idea for an Alaska-based show: the state does, after all, have a rich history of the paranormal and the unexplained, everything from a tradition of Alaska Native mythology to regular spottings of the "Hairy Man," better known as Bigfoot in much of the rest of the world. Add to that a number of unexplained ghost sightings -- including along Alaska's legendary Iditarod Trail -- and cryptids like the "Lake Iliamna Monster" completely unique to Alaska, and you have an interesting blend of adventure and mystery hidden among the vastness of the Last Frontier.
