MagellanTV Crime doesn't sleep, but it pays. Can you survive 24 hours of true crime?. We will pay you $1000

Turn your passion for True Crime TV into a paying job.

For the 2nd year in a row, MagellanTV is looking for true-crime fanatics to take on a 24-hour True Crime marathon, and document their experience—and We’re willing to pay you $100/hour!.

Last year we hired one person for $1000. This year, we’re looking for a team of three brave souls for $2400 each.

Who we want to hire

Our ideal candidates live for True Crime.

They can handle the most menacing serial killer, the goriest details, and don’t flinch at the chilling paranormal.

And they love it so much that they’re willing to stream it nonstop for 24 hours.

Along with watching, they’ll be documenting their True Crime all-nighter on social media so everyone will see if they can hack it… or not.
