The TV Op that Won't Be

I got an email yesterday, a very nicely worded inquiry for a casting call.  Reading between the lines, I think they were looking for the "tiger mom" role in a reality TV show about different styles of parenting.

Uh, thanks, but no.

I sent a polite note back, thanking them for asking, but I have a hard time imagining a parenting-focused show that will lead to anything but media destruction of its participants.  Even if one manages to be a controversial and hated-enough character to get invited to yet another reality show as follow up.  Best case - Dancing with the Stars.  More likely - something like that show were the D-list celebrities learn how to high platform dive.  Worst case - a show where you have to eat live bugs.

Maybe it's time to produce our own video program.  With a Les Miserables chorus, of course.
