Reality Series Seeking People Who Need Financial Help

This article was written by in Personal Finance. 6 comments.

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]

Make sure to include your:

  • Name
  • Location
  • Contact information
  • and a recent photo of you/you and your family.

(Must be over 18)

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!

Hi my name is Nina. My moms name is Vada and she’s a very special part of my life. My mom, little brother Isaiah, and little sister Addison, and I all live together. My mom has been through so much and she needs some help. Two years ago my grandma got diagnosed with lung cancer so my mom bought a little camper to move beside my grandma to take care of her. Well my moms sister bought my grandparents land and kicked my mom off of it and now we live in a rv park. Our camper has no heater or air conditioner so we either burn up in the summer or freeze in the winter. It also has places in the floor that are rotted out and it’s just not warm enough for our family. This past week my mom has lost her mom and her dad within one week. My mom just had to buy a newer car because ours was unsafe and was falling(literally) apart on us. Please help my mom in anyway you can. She truly deserves it. This isn’t even the half if what she has been through lately, but she needs something good to happen to her. So please help.

My Mother is a strong woman. She had brain surgery a few years ago and has an uncurable type of cancer. A few weeks ago she had a heart attack and has to pay $300 a month for medication she also has diabetes and high blood pressure. and works full time. I couldn’t live with out her. My son also just had surgery on his spine and is only 5 months. we now have to see two more specialist for his kidneys. Our family struggles and I cant work at the moment due to my sons heath issues it would be such a blessing for help. my grandma died of lung cancer and my sister has a tumor on her patuatery gland in her brain. it has been such a struggle for all of us. I couldn’t imagine life without them. but the bills are pilling up and were just praying for a blessing. thanks for your time. _Lori Dalton

I am a 37 yr old man who got married February 14,2014. Things stated out ok till I lost my job in May. Since that time I have had little luck finding a steady job. As a result we have lost our home & now live with my mother in law. I recently found a job but it is only seasonal. I am in fear every day of what is to become of my new family fate. We live in a 3 bedroom home.where there are 8 people living here not to mention my 4 kids that I rarely get to see due to the lack of space. I really wish that I could provide more for my family but at this time I fear that we will be in the streets and that thought is killing me. Please help me
