My name is Rachelle Mendez and I'm a Casting Producer for ABC Television's hit reality show, "Wife Swap." I'm conducting a National Casting Search to find Metal Fans to feature on the current season of our show, and am contacting you in hopes of discussing the possibility of working together to find a family who we can consider casting.
"Wife Swap" is a family show on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two very different families get the opportunity to swap lives (but not bedrooms - everyone has their own!) for a week to experience what it's like to live a different lifestyle - and to see what they can teach each other about their own lifestyle!
We want to feature a family of long time metal fans (Death, Black, Thrash, Speed, etc) in hopes of shattering any common misconceptions of what family life for Metalheads might be like! We encourage all families, the bolder and more adventurous the better, with 2 parents at home and school aged children (6-17) to apply immediately. The family can belong to any aspect of the Metal community - as fans, promoter, band members - it really makes no difference, as long as the family is genuinely passionate about Metal.
Maybe you know of a family or have a family yourself with made for TV personalities that you would be willing to recommend. I would greatly appreciate you forwarding my information on to any of your family members, friends, and associates who might be interested in sharing their lives with us for a week!
In addition, each family that tapes an episode of "Wife Swap" receives a financial honorarium for their time. Anyone who refers a family that appears on our program receives a finder's fee.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this - I know it is an unusual request. If you have any questions, or to apply, please contact me by phone or by email:
