People Farm Casting, a casting agency that focuses on finding non-actors for reality television shows and commercials, contacted Consumerism Commentary to let us know about a new project. The agency, whose team has experience casting shows like Pimp My Ride and commercials like that Dos Equis ad with the “most interesting man in the world,” has been hired by a large consumer financial institution to cast a new reality show.
I spoke briefly with People Farm Casting yesterday to get a feel for the project. The show will feature several different individuals and families in need of specific financial help. A financial expert will work with each individual for several weeks, and every interaction will be filmed for the series. This could be an interesting opportunity to receive financial help, appear in a reality series, and get paid. If that sounds interesting to you, read the information below and contact People Farm Casting as soon as possible.
A large consumer financial institution is seeking individuals and families that NEED some help planning for their future to star in a brand new series that will take the confusion out of finance! We will be casting across the country. Casting has started so read below and then shoot us an email at: [email protected]

We are looking for all types of stories, financial situations, both good and bad. Here are just a few examples of the stories we’d like to showcase:
- Early Retirement Planner
- First-time Home Buyer / Seller
- Newlyweds / Couple Getting Married
- Parents Planning for Child’s Future
- Divorced Singles
- Laid-off Professionals
- Cross Cultural Investors
- Job Change / Pay cut
- Pre-retirement Couple (Person in late 40s)
- Non-savvy Investor
- Savvy Investor
- Late Retirement Planning
It would be great to see a Consumerism Commentary reader cast in this new series. Good luck!
