In-filming television show called 'Pregnant in Heels' is seeking a linguist
to participate in the filming of the show on July 15th in NYC.

The show follows entrepreneur and business-owner Rosie Pope, who has
created a thriving business as the owner/designer of Rosie Pope Maternity.
Her high-end maternity brand is marketed to the most sophisticated urban

Each of the eight episodes will focus on two expecting mothers in their
third trimester of pregnancy. Rosie will hold a private consultation with
each mom-to-be in order to assess their needs and desires. She assists them
in everything from looking good to feeling good. The show will also take an
up-close look at Rosie Pope’s professional and personal life, as she tries
to balance being a mother, wife and entrepreneur. Each episode culminates
with the birth of two babies.

For one of our upcoming stories, we are working with a couple who are
completely obsessed with choosing the right baby name for their soon to be
born son. They believe a name is a Personal Brand and picking the right
name is essential to the child's future success. Just to give you an idea,
for their last two children, both girls, the couple pooled names from all
of the most successful graduates of both Dartmouth, the husband's Alma
mater, and Harvard, the wife's and cross referenced them with the alumni
announcements in Variety and the Baby Name Wizard to create a sort of
naming algorithm.

For this child, a boy, they want to take it to the next level.

Our expecting mom and dad would love to test selected names in a think
tank, to be sure they are choosing the best name for their son. The
Producers would like to add a Linguist to the group to add his or her
opinion. I would love to talk with someone who would be able to assist me
with finding a Linguist in NYC to participate on camera July 15th.
