Do you want to be on television?

21 01 2009

When I first began writing A Career Girl’s Guide to Becoming a Stepmom, there were hardly any resources out there for gals like us even though there are more than 15 million stepmothers in America. Some estimates even suggest that stepfamilies currently outnumber nuclear families in the United States. Popular culture is FINALLY sitting up and taking notice. Within the space of two days, two producers from two different film companies called me for help in finding stepmoms to be on new reality television shows. If you’re the outgoing type see the casting information for each show below. And if you do end up on television, I hope you’ll help show Americans in blended families how to choose peace over anger, love over pain. Best of luck if you decide to try out for the shows!

Instant Family Show

Established non-fiction production company is casting all over the country for an OUTGOING, FUN family to be featured in their own series. Think “Jon & Kate Plus Eight…” We are looking for women about to transition from fabulous and single to STEPPARENT. Are you about to become an instant family? Are you a bit overwhelmed about the idea? We’d like to hear your story! This is a positive, upbeat show that parents of all types (step or otherwise) can relate to! To find out more information about the company and what we’re looking for, please contact Ally at Please put “Instant Family!” in the subject line.


Show Spotlights the Emotional Struggles of Ex-Wives and New Wives Whose Ties to the Same Man Force them Together …For Better or Worse

What: CASTING for “STEP-WIVES” – new reality show from the producers of My Fair Wedding (WEtv); Dirty Jobs (Discovery); and Ghost Hunters (SCI FI). Show set to air on a major, Emmy-winning cable TV network known for its lifestyle reality programming, including shows about fashion, food, and upscale-living

Ex-wife. Stepmother. The words themselves are jarring. And they can make anybody take a deep breath, roll their eyes, and offer their condolences. Step-wives are the ex-wife and current wife of the same man – women who find themselves thrown together… for better or for worse.

Navigating step-waters can be a difficult, emotional ride for all involved. But this new show goes way beyond the stereotypes to explore the complex relationships that a woman experiences when her former spouse finds love again or when a new wife must deal with her husband’s ex.

Each episode of STEP-WIVES will chronicle the diverse and dynamic stories of step-wives, each of whose ties to each other will vary – whether it be through their children, a shared business between the exes, or the awkward proximity of the community they still share.
