We knew it would happen. Desperate Housewives begat the reality Real Housewives franchise. Production on the new Dallas series triggered everything from Big Rich Texas to The A-List Dallas. Success begets success. So it was just a matter of time before the hit sitcom Modern Family would spur its reality-based imitators.
And that time is now.
Worlds of Wonder, the production company responsible for RuPaul’s Drag Race and lots of other TV shows with a gay slant, is in the process of casting for its newest docu-series. My Modern Family is going into production, and is undertaking a nationwide search for their own Mitchell and Cameron. From the press release:
“Are you … gay and married with kids? Does your extended family play an important role in your life? Do you think your family is larger than life and ready for their close-up? If so, we may want to hear from you!”
Interested folks can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and need to include a brief description of their family (at least one set of in-laws need to be close and in general get along with you and your partner, and help out from time to time) and similarities to the sitcom, plus “photos of as many family members as possible” and a way to contact you.
Someone local really needs to be on this show. You listening to me, Todd and Cooper Smith-Koch?
