Did you ever see thatcharming chic flickThe Holiday, where two women switch lives and then find love? Well, that is the premise behind ABC‘s new reality TV series, Holidate. The show is currently casting for single women between the ages of 25-44. Keep reading for more details…
The following is a statement from Elena Moscatt, casting director:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
