Is Your Mom Always Right? Then This Casting Call is For You

I get a lot of PR emails every week pitching products and all that stuff and I usually scan the subject lines and just go down the list clicking delete.  At this point I know what I want to write about and with whom I like to work and trust.  But last week an email from a casting company caught my eye, because unlike many reality show pitches this actually seemed hilarious.

Here’s the pitch (my notes in red):

CASTING MOMS AND THEIR MOTHERS FOR NEW GAME SHOW!!  (Ok, heard that before)
Are you a real mom, with a mother that you love/hate? With a mother that is helpful/drives you crazy? With a mom that is supportive/understanding/is always right and knows everything? (not a fit for my mom, but oh yeah my mind is churning with ideas now)

(Oh come on, it’s you that knows everything…)

A major cable network is casting a game show and looking for Moms and their Mothers living in the NYC/tri-state area who have a sense of humor about their relationship and a burning desire to be right.  (sense of humor is KEY here people.  Don’t come on wanting to crush your mom.)

Moms and Their Mothers must:
– both be over 21 years old and living in the NYC/tri state area
– be available for one day of taping (11/15 or 11/16)
– be in good health and ambulatory
– have at least one or two children between the ages of 5 and 14
– have at least one other close female relative living nearby (sister, aunt, mother in law, sister in law etc)

If this sounds like you please email the following ASAP to barbarabarnacasting@gmail.com:

– Full Name(s) of Mom and Grandmother
– day and evening phone number(s)
– town(s) where you currently live
– current occupation(s)
– recent photo of each of you (RECENT – even the grandma’s)
– name and relationship of close female relative living nearby
– names and ages of kids
– paragraph describing your family life – have fun with this! We want to know the good, the bad and the ugly (if you’re a blogger I’m sure you can just point them in the right linky direction)
– MOM COMPETITION SHOW in the subject line

Moms and Their Mothers will receive $350 each for 1 day shoot. (not bad for a day of proving you’re right – you do it for free every day!)

So if this sounds like you and your mom how could you not do this?  I think the fact that they want it to be funny – not mean or grudge-filled – says  a lot.  And who knows you just might win and be able to lord it over your mom forever more!
