Are you crafty? Are you forever pinning DIY projects to your Pinterest page like an online hoarder?
Are you also a Parks and Recreation fan? Do you watch Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson riffing their way through the show’s gag reel and wish you could hang out with them for a day?
If you said “yes” to the above questions and you don’t have a crippling fear of inadequacy and failure (shit, I’m out), you can apply to be on their new show, The Handmaid Project.
The Handmaid Project is a crafting competition hosted by Poehler and Offerman and is open to crafters of all ages and disciplines. According to Deadline:
Each week eight all-around makers, from all walks of life, will take on a series of projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and our expert judges. Over the course of each episode, the contestants must tackle a different theme, hand-making items in different disciplines — the difficulty of which increases with every episode until a winner is crown. Shot in an outdoor setting, the series will also focus on the characters and camaraderie of those who enjoy creating their own crafts, all under the comedic guidance of Poehler and Offerman.
You can apply to be on the show here, and be prepared to rate your skills in 35 areas, including knitting, leather working, batik, cosplay/costume making, and origami. Trust me, there is something for everyone here.
Since this is a reality show, there are also questions like, “What are you like in a group setting? How do you think you affect group dynamics?” So, what you lack in basket weaving or quilting, you can try and make up for in being the token pain-in-the-ass personality. (Maybe I have a chance here after all!)
Filming is tentatively schedule to begin in August of 2017, so get your application in today!
