MTV’s series True Life will be featuring the lives of American’s that have decided to pick up their life in the states and move abroad for love. The True Life: I’m Moving Overseas for Love episode will air in 2014/2015 season, and is now searching for subjects to feature in this segment of the Emmy Award winning series.

The show will give the audience a glimpse at the excitement and challenges faced by Americans who are following their hearts to another country –  a locale where the local customs, cuisine and mores differ vastly from their own.

Lori Raimondo, Thunderbird alumna ’89, is Associate Producer and Casting Director for the show.  “As soon as I heard about the True Life: Moving Overseas for Love episode I immediately thought of Thunderbird,” said Raimondo.  “While I was at Thunderbird, students were heading off to all corners of the earth whether for a semester abroad, an internship, charity work or a new job. Often the T-bird had a spouse or partner that would also be making the trip and confronting the challenges that come along with such a move. And of course many T-birds fell in love with a classmate and followed them back to their homeland.”

Please include your name, location, phone number, picture, age, a description of your relationship and situation and how you’re preparing for life in a new culture.
