Casting Calls for Vegan Families and Healthy Eaters?

I love to see signs that people are waking up to the power of their food choices. That's why I'm blogging about two e-mails that I received in the past few weeks.

E-mail Number 1: Metal Flowers Media is Looking for Vegan Families Across America

"Hi -

My name is Janelle, I am the VP of Casting at Metal Flowers Media. We cast TV shows including: Storage Wars, The Colony, Capture, Bar Rescue and Naked & Afraid. I came across your blog and wanted to reach out to see if you could email blast your members/followers or pass along to anyone that may be a good fit.
The producers of "American Idol" and the creators of "Wipeout" are looking for two families will join together in ONE competition, together. They will compete together, to achieve the goal. They won't have to do something against the other, or adopt the other's lifestyle. They will be paired with a family that they can teach something to - and hopefully learn from, too. This is a family show - no one will be forced to do anything that is against their moral makeup, religious views, or personal choices. We are looking for vegan families because it's a lifestyle choice that has become more mainstream, and we feel this is a great opportunity to highlight it in a positive way. This show is about camaraderie, sportsmanship, and 2 very different groups of individuals coming together for the common good, in the interest of a higher goal - which the producers feel is a metaphor our county could use right now. This is a very positive show, with a positive ending, and way to promote unification.

CALLING ALL VEGANS: NOW IS THE TIME TO SHARE YOUR LIFESTYLE! Vegan families: Does your family share a commitment to the protection of animals and a stringent vegan lifestyle? In this fun and “info-taining” new series, two families will join forces to compete for a cash prize. If your family is united by a cause, if everyone speaks their minds and want to share their views with the world, this is the opportunity for you!

All outspoken, fun families of four (minimum) who are all 16+ and commit to a vegan lifestyle are encouraged to apply. Please email me at if you're interested. It's a super fun show!!!
