My name is Callie Zanandrie. I'm a Producer for HGTV. We are going to film a new show for HGTV in Shanghai. I came across your blog where you post pictures from your trip to China and I wanted to see if you still had met any friends in Shanghai that you think might be interested in applying to be on the show. Maybe you could even post something on your blog about our casting call. Following is a press release. Please let me know if you or any of your Shanghai American Expat friends are interested in participating with the show.


Home & Garden Television (HGTV) is launching a new international series that features American expats telling their stories about what it’s like to live abroad.

HGTV Producers want to hear from fun, outgoing, enthusiastic Americans Expats who are living in Shanghai RIGHT NOW!

In each episode, our host will experience Shanghai through the eyes of expat families. From the design of your space (what features of your home are typical of properties in Shanghai?) to the lifestyle and culture of the area (what major life changes have you experienced as a result of your move? What do you do for fun?), the American Expats will give viewers a first hand look at what it’s like to live overseas.


HGTV International is a voyeuristic look at the stunning home properties and lifestyles of American expats. This program showcases home design, set within the hottest places to live around the world.
