    Hey Erica! My name is Alison and I’m a casting producer for HGTV’s House Hunters International. I’m looking for American expats to feature on our show and I am hoping that you can point me in the right direction. Feel free to email me at any time.

      I’m sure I could think of some good ones. Let me ask around to see if anyone is interested and I’ll let you know. There are a number of Facebook groups for Expats, including Americans Living in Iceland. You may want to try there yourself. I’ll be in touch. Erica
