Reality Show Wife Swap Looking For Metal Families

Fans of the ABC Television's hit reality show Wife Swap know that the show always features interesting families. This season it should get a bit more interesting as the show is looking for families who are metal fans. I spoke with Rachelle Mendez, a Casting Producer for the show to find out more about what they are looking for.

Morley: Hi Rachelle. Apparently you’re looking for metal fans to be part of the show.

Rachelle Mendez:
I am 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 finding a family who we can consider casting.

Morley: For those who aren't familiar with the show, can you briefly outline the premise?

Rachelle Mendez:
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!

Morley: What sort of family will be considered?

Rachelle Mendez:
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 Metal Heads 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. If anyone knows of a family 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!

Morley: So besides being TV stars for an episode, does the family also get paid?

Rachelle Mendez:
In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife Swap receives a financial honorarium for their time. Also, anyone who refers a family that appears on our program receives a finder's fee.

Morley: So how to people get a hold of you to pass on information or to apply for the spot?

Rachelle Mendez:
People can contact me by email or phone at the info below.
