Ashley T. Amato, Production Assistant at Vin Di Bona Productions writes: I am a prodcution assistant in southern California researching show topics for a new prime time reality special. We are seeking Lord of the Rings fans with children and are offering a large cash prize if people fit the bill. Specifically we are casting for a show about America’s most outrageous parents. The goal of this show is to be a light hearted, family oriented, comedy-reality show.

We are looking for parents with interests and hobbies that their children might not share a general interest in. The Lord of the Rings following would provide a good story line and I’m sure there are countless fans who also have children, who aren’t as enthusiastic about the whole phenomenon.

We ask that the people send an e-mail to The producers will be going through the submissions and contacting people for further discussion. It would be great if the people who are responding would include their contact information though.
