You might be a Beta Mom if....

You consider 6 hours of PBS "just one show" because there aren't any commercials.

"Not so fast, you ingrates. Public News Team is taking a break from its pledge drive to kick some a**. No commercials; no mercy," Tim Robbins in his unnamed cameo in Anchorman as the Public TV News Anchor.

The Internet is such a wonderful tool for finding quotes from classic movies--how did we ever function without it???? :)

My name is Molly Sebastian, and I am a Casting Producer working on a documentary-style television show that airs on ABC Television. We are looking for dynamic families with interesting and unique lifestyles to feature on our program. I came across your contact information online while doing research on women’s organizations and social clubs. It would be wonderful to find a strong minded woman and her family. We embrace women with interesting passions and views.

The documentary-style show is called “Wife Swap.” Please don’t be thrown off by the title – it is a family-centered program that airs on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two different families have the opportunity to swap lives for a week to experience what it’s like to live a different lifestyle. The goal of the swap is for both families to take away something positive from the experience – both by teaching another family about their beliefs and values, and by learning something new about the way other people live.

I was hoping to enlist your help getting the word out about this opportunity. I understand that many individuals who are involved in certain groups prefer not to be contacted and consider many opportunities spam– which I totally respect. Of course, appearing on television is not for everyone! However, I’m sure this is would be interesting and adventurous for someone you may know. By casting a wide net, it’s my hope that I can find a family who would be excited about bringing their lifestyle to another family, and the rest of the country. The ideal family would delight in the opportunity to share their views publicly and be comfortable speaking candidly about their beliefs and philosophies.

Our show is looking for a family where there are at least two parents living in the home, and at least one child between the ages of 5-18 who resides there full time. Families who are chosen to participate on the show receive a $20,000 honorarium. Referrals for great families are always welcome, and if an individual refers a family that is selected for the show, we will give them a $1,000 finder’s fee.

Interested families can reach me ASAP at (646) 747 7945 and if it’s after 6pm, please call my cell at 786-385-6339 or email me at molly.sebastian@rdfnewyork.com AND mollysebastian@yahoo.com. Thank you in advance for your help, and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or feedback.

Sincerely,
Molly Sebastian
