I wanted to share with you one of my TV Concepts: Probing History
Facebook Page: Probing History
Group: Temerity Magazine
Privies, or outhouses and dump sites are valuable time capsules that tell a story once the relic and treasure is recovered. Probing History’s Chad Everson will assist property owners in recovering the stories of their property then sharing it through the TV program, and Temerity Magazine.
Relic and Treasure hunter who seeks out the story recovered of that pioneer spirit that strove to attain the American Dream. Chad specializes in metal detecting, privy and outhouse digging, Outlaw cache sites, Trail Trees, Stone monuments and Temerity. He does not understand or practice cherry picking, he digs deep probing history for his property owners.
What makes the show and the concept so interesting is the property owner. These are the great American’s who thirst to know who loved their land before them and know their story. Many never imagined they would be digging a privy or outhouse probing history so they are out of their element, but with a shared goal, the task gets done and we tell their properties story.
No matter where you dig or hunt someone, somewhere is going to wonder what the hell you are doing. I have had the most interesting conversations with Lookey Lou’s that just so happened to stumble across me hunting relic and treasure. Many times I get a great story of the property that the property owner would never share with me, or one they have never heard of before. Most of the time we share a chuckle and I am usually on the receiving end. One of the best lines I remember being hurdled out of a pickup they had loaded with family and friends to take a gander at my exploits was, “If your trying to grow beer, it won’t work!” I had to lay my shovel down and just laugh! 90 some degrees that day and the best giggle I had been given all hunt season. I just pray I can capture it on video when it happens so I can share it with you.
Chad introduces the property owner and together they share the sites story. Our goal in Probing History is to find relic and treasure that will support that story or lead us onto another story. Then the fun continues with a lot of hard work locating, digging and retrieving the artifacts. Then after all is cleaned and researched we wrap up our findings and tell the story we found Probing History.
Creators note: This is a slick and streamlined concept that can be accomplished with the limited resources Theodore Media LLC have at their disposal. When we find a network home, or grow the concept we will add more bells and whistles if needed.
We are shooting for 6 complete episodes to be available online in the Fall/Winter of 2013.
