Default Release

This production company wants me to signing this release. They want to interview me for a TV program and the release would allow them to use the filmed interview in any way that they choose, TV bloopers, cut it up for advertising, anything, and I'd have no recourse. I'm sure if I showed it to my lawyer he would laugh at the idea of signing it.
The show is to be another twist on a double homicide ( wife and daughter) that has been documented in 2 previous TV airings ( Court TV and The New Detective). I was in both of the 2 previous productions and didn't sign anything like this before.
Is there anybody on the THT that doesn't think it would be foolish to sign this and then be interviewed in front of the camera?

Sounds like a Kardashian pre-nup.

Sorry I don't know, you the criminal?

No, I'm not the criminal, I knew him for a long time, I worked for him as a contractor, I knew his wife and daughter and I shutdown my business for several days while searching for them ( Wife and daughter, their bodies were never recovered).
I'm a captain of a search and rescue / mountain rescue team.

Shame. I can't fathom how a person can kill another, let alone your own wife and daughter. Obviously you are a good guy, sign it and tell the story. Good luck to you.

Standard release. Sign it. I've had to sign them for Phillip Morris and other companies that wanted to use my likeness. Likewise, we always had talent sign them when we were doing production. Just keeps the average joe on the street from coming back and trying to sue for royalites or copyright infringement.

Basically says - Yes, I acknowledge that you will use my likeness in any way you see fit and you have my permission to do so.
