A local casting director is looking for single women in the Baltimore/Washington area who want to be on reality TV.
Elena Moscatt, who I wrote about in November as she started filming Web episodes of her serial, Life After Lisa, has been hired as a casting director to find single women between the ages of 25 and 44 to star in a new reality show based on the film The Holiday in which two women switch lives. So far, she hasn't had much luck. In fact, the producers and Soapnet, the cable channel that will air the new series, have put a Baltimore episode on hold and moved onto Dallas until Moscatt can find some candidates here.
So here is your chance to be on reality TV. I'll let Moscatt describe the show and tell you how to apply herself.
Holidate is a new reality dating series just bought by the Soapnet channel to be the first reality series for the soap channel. It will be produced by ABC Media. In each episode the producers take two women from two different cities and have them switch lives for three days, while dating their "guy" friends, socializing with their "social" network, and going on a series of dates with new "dream" guys from the new cities. Essentially- it will be the real life version of the movie "The Holiday" starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black.
The producers are looking for the girl who already has everything- the looks, the job, the social network, etc. The only thing she doesn't have is the right guy. Hmm. Maybe he's in another city? For five days (two days of travel, and three days of filming) the producers will treat these two girls (per episode) to that perfect "Holidate". The girls just have to believe in love.
I have walked the streets of Baltimore, and Washington DC looking for the perfect candidates for this series for two weeks. I searched the malls, restaurants, gyms, and night clubs searching for beautiful candidates. I found a few viable candidates- gave them the information and hoped they'd apply. The problem? Everyone seemed interested in person but only a few actually applied.
So the producers put the Baltimore/DC episode on hold, and moved on to Dallas, Texas. Is it true that there are more "viable candidates" in Dallas Texas? It certainly seems that the Texas women want to be "Reality" super stars more then the Baltimore and Washington DC girls.
A show like Holidate could be a lot of fun to film in the Baltimore/ Washington area. We have a lot of places to see here, and a lot of fun tourist attractions, bars, and nightclubs that would love the national exposure. So let's see if we really do have those "viable candidates" here..
If you would like to be on an episode of Holidate, send a few pictures and a paragraph about yourself to Elena at email@example.com

One more note- they are casting handsome single men as well to be the dates of the two women chosen per episode. So single men in the Baltimore/DC areas may apply as well!
