The Casting Muse for VPETALENT
Thalia DaCosta, freelance production professional.

Production Description

Viacom and MTV International are casting parents of men and women 18-24, their child, and their child's mate they dislike for a new overseas series about parents not approving of their child's chosen mate. The show is a bit like "Wife Swap," since it allows the mates to move in with the family, in the hope of being able to find common ground.

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Shoots in the family's home for 10-12 days Winter 2013. (Note: Specifically seeking stories in areas that stay warm in the winter.)

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Pays: $5000 for family participation.


Seeking submissions from: S. Florida, FL; S. California, CA; S. Texas, TX; All cities, AZ; All cities, HI; New Orleans, LA; NM; PR; MS Sign up or Log In to apply.

Producer's Note

"We are looking to shoot this fall and winter so we are currently only seeking stories in states that experience mild winters, if any seasonal change at all. Any story with big characters and a great story will be considered no matter where they are. We are seeking big personalities that are likable! Parents, their children and their mate would all be a part of this project and all involved would be paid $5000 for their participation. Production will try to be flexible with the demand on the parent's time and home. Since this is for overseas we are hope to show aspirational American lifestyles, and all the trappings of a privileged life. The most desirable angle we are looking to show is how parents that give their children the best in life, yet their children have not chosen someone that is the best for them."
