Got an interesting ask from the Oprah Winfrey Network that sounded like something that some of you may be interested in! They’re casting a new shot tenatively titled “It Takes a Village” and is a positive-change show aimed at helping one family each week by bringing together neighbors and strengthening community. Sounds great – here are some more details from the casting director:
The show will offer common sense solutions for typical family problems. Members of our casting team have worked on “Supernanny” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and the show shares similar themes BUT the help is not monetary in the sense of a car or home; it’s more about relationship fixing and building — something we feel is far more important and valuable.
Each episode will feature a family with a teenage child, confronting challenges. Then we will rally the community to help, offer support and find solutions. The help will come from friends, family, neighbors and free services. At the end of the day, this show intends to create a greater sense of community and healing for the whole neighborhood.
