My name is Danielle Gervais. I'm a Casting Producer for ABC's
Primetime show, "Wife Swap." I hope you don't mind me contacting you,
but we're currently into our fourth season at the moment and we're
looking for unique and out-going families who would be interested in
sharing their lifestyles with another family. Specifically, we're
looking for families who believe in the Mayan calendar and are
currently preparing for December 21, 2012. I apologize if you've
already received a similar posting, but we still haven't found a
dynamic family preparing for 2012. Please feel free to forward this
email on to any families you think would be interested in taking part
in this experience, even if they're not necessarily preparing for the
year 2012, we still love hearing from families with unique
perspectives on life!

In case you are unfamiliar with the show, the premise of Wife Swap is
to take two different families and have the moms switch places to
experience how another family lives. Half of the week, mom lives the
life of the family she is staying with. After making her observations,
she introduces several "rule changes," where she implements rules and
activities that are important to her family. It's a positive
experience for people to not only learn but teach about other families
and other ways of life. Wife Swap airs on Disney owned ABC television
on Wednesdays at 8 pm- the family hour!

Requirements: Each family must consist of two parents and at least one
child between 7 and 17 and should reside in the continental U.S.
(There may be other children living in the home who are older or
younger than the required age, as long as one child is in the required
age range.)

Participating in the show is a very unique experience that can be life
changing for everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode
of Wife Swap receives $20,000 as compensation for their time. Anyone
who refers a family that appears on our program receives $1000 as a
'thank you' from us.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this email and I hope to hear
from you soon. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact
me! If you're interested in learning more, please include your contact

Thank you for your time,

Danielle Gervais
Casting Producer, Wife Swap
