I received a telephone call from a production company and they are looking for jobs they can film where the contractors did bad work, ripped off the customers, or whatever for Adam Carolla's new TV show.

They are making a televisions series and will pay to have the homeowner's job repaired for free for the privilege to produce the story.

I am not sure what states they are working in, but California's one for sure. If you are interested and can't find the phone number you can Google it because I don't think I can post it on the forum.

Now, I'm wondering why they called me looking for bad jobs! :whistling I've fixed a couple jobs fixing another contractor's crazy mistakes. How about ya'll? Anyone ever have a nightmare contractor situation?

Yes, This seems to be common. Especially it seems that where there isn't a lot of monitoring of registered or un-registered contractors. Usually when someone has the money or a dire need for some work....they take whoever will work for them. Some times contractors get in over their head and cheap out or just walk out when it looks like 'in their view' that they're not making as much as they imagined. Sometimes it's a lack of experience on the part of the person doing the work and the unwillingness to admit that a job is out of their league.
Today , not enough people care about each other let alone about "some job" for someone else.

Each neighborhood needs a Mike Holmes like on HG TV.
We shouldn't be contractors if we're not like Mike!
