Documentary Film Maker Searching for Lady Truck Drivers


Women Truck Drivers on TV
Lisa Kelly of “Ice Road Truckers” is currently one of the most famous ladies in trucking these days.

Hey lady truckers! Do you think you have what it takes to make the general public understand how much you love being a truck driver? A documentary film maker wants to speak with you about it.

Michael Petrella has been making films and producing reality TV shows for years, including The Amazing Race, Project Runway, Superbowl Halftime Shows, and documentaries for the Travel Channel. His next project will be examining how difficult it is for professional lady truckers to earn a living while keeping ends tied together at home with their families and loved ones.

As he puts it, “Topics to be explored include balancing a home life and family while on the road, working in what continues to be a male-dominated industry, and the challenges that face drivers responsible for hauling millions of dollars worth of cargo across the country.”

The Travel Channel made a name for themselves a while back with their TV series Truck Stop Missouri.

So What Kind of Lady Truckers Are Wanted?

Women ideally between the ages of 25 and 50 (they will interview truckers of any age, however) any ethnicity, marital status, and sexual preference are encouraged to apply for consideration. Drivers based in any of the fifty states are eligible.

To submit your info for the show, just fill out the form below as well as you can. Michael will be conducting preliminary interviews through Skype or email in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for your help!
