Wednesday morning briefing: Off the grid, no grumps and the circus comes to town

Good morning and welcome to the Wednesday briefing.

Off the grid

A Los Angeles-based production company is looking for off-beat communities, families or couples living off the grid.

It's part of casting for a new reality show planned by Red Varden Studios.

They're looking for folks with big personalities who are living without electricity or other basic needs.
