What will you call it, Bob?  "Ca-straw-ay"?  Or maybe, "Lost HighRise-ons"?

..Okay, so here's the pilot: the architect shows up on the job site of his
straw bale high rise in Hong Kong, which is being built on a barge. A
typhoon sweeps in, the barge breaks loose, and after a week at sea, it runs
aground on the shores of Borneo. So the architect has to survive by his wits
AND complete the high rise using vines and bark and animal skins.. 


Okay, sure, it's got a few rough edges. But there's nothing like it out
there, am I right?

Hello Global Baler Friends:


This just in . an interesting opportunity for 'a Les Stroud type' (I had to
look it up too:  http://lesstroud.ca <http://lesstroud.ca/> ).


Perhaps one of you, or someone you know?  Point them to reply directly to

Happy New Year,

My name is Sam Brown. I work at Matador, a production company in Los Angeles
whose founders have produced series such as NBC's The Biggest Loser, History
Channel's Swamp People and Discovery's Dual Survival. I had come across your
website and wanted to reach out. 


We're currently trying to develop a series with a network around a
charismatic and skilled contractor/architect who is also a wilderness
expert-someone well versed in the outdoors and the wild. The dream is a male
talent in their 30's, 40's or early 50's. A Les Stroud architect of sorts...
Being an expert in this world, I was wondering if you might be able to point
me in the right direction on this. Is there anyone who comes to mind for
this, or that you could recommend?  


Thank you! Any information on this front is greatly appreciated.
