Parkies needed for GCB: Good Christian Bitches

Heads up!  As I mentioned last week, ABC is about to begin filming the pilot for "Good Christian Bitches".  The show is currently being called GCB for TV - which is STUPID.

I just got a call from a rep at Cache Casting who says they are looking for people who have the "Highland Park look" to use as extras on the set.

Filming will take place in Highland Park "at a church" on March 22 and 23.  You need to be between the ages of 28-55 (sorry SMU kids) and be willing to work for a mere $64 a day. But, hey! They will feed you on the set and you can say you were on a TV show!

If you are interested in getting your 15 minutes of fame and possibly being discovered, email a head shot (can be an informal photo) to cache.casting@gmail.com.  You must put ABC in the Subject line.

Good luck and happy filming, bitches!

UPDATE: Cache Casting wants you to know that "They need men and women. And they are looking to change the name. This shoot is just for the pilot. The show is going to be a spin off of Housewives of New York City, etc. Except it will be Housewives of Highland Park. This show is in no way trying to insult anyones faith, and that is why they haven't decided the name for sure. The day on the set is a great opportunity to work with the producers of Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives and Melrose Place. This is all about opportunity. You will be working as background talent and the experience is well worth it."

So, get off your high horse people. Even the Lord has a sense of humor.

  2. What an unfortunate name! The name is such a turn-off that I will not even tune in to see the show, and I am from the Dallas area and love to support any local media for our city. I cannot fathom why someone would put so much time, money, and energy into trying to insult someone's faith. Bet it would be a different story if this were about Jews or Buddhists.

  3. I agree. The name is so awful. Considering 85% of Americans consider themselves Christians it's also a great way to alienate a large viewing audience just from poor branding.

  5. Yes Cynthia God is hilarious.

    Debi - thanks for the clarification and as a fan of Housewives of Orange County I have to admit I'm sure I'll get sucked into the Highland Park version.
