A Different Kind of Casting Call .....

Do you know someone whose home deserves an Extreme Makeover? If so, then the producers of an ABC television network program want to hear from you!

"Ty Pennington and his Extreme Makeover: Home Edition crew have been all across the map," we are told, "and they are ready to drive that famous bus to Midland, Texas!"

"What does it take to be picked for an 'Extreme Makeover,'" you might ask ...

According to an EMHE press release, "we are in search of deserving families and deserving people - people who have amazing strength of character and who put their own needs aside to help others. Whether it’s a mom, a soldier, a teacher, or a fireman, we think a deserving family, are families who inspire those around them. In addition, the producers are looking for families whose houses need major alterations or repair- homes that present serious problems for the family and affect the family's quality of life."

"To be eligible," that release goes on to say, "a family must own their own single family home and be able to show producers how a makeover will make a huge difference in their lives."

The press relase recommends that interested families or those who wish to nominate another family should e-mail a short description of their family story to Nominations/submissions must include:

1. The names and ages of each member of the household
2. A description of the major challenges within the home
3. Explanation of why this family is deserving, or a positive role model in their community
4. Photos of the family and a photo of the home
5. Don’t forget to include a contact phone number

The deadline: for nominations is December 1, 2009.
