HOLLYWOOD, CA. -- The producers of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition are looking for a family in the Hampton Roads area whose home deserves an extreme makeover.
“We are looking for the deserving people and inspiring families that America can relate to,” said Supervising Producer Rebecca Shumsky.
Shumsky says producers are looking for families whose homes desperately need to be rebuilt.
“We really want to help families whose homes present major problems for the family, those big issues that affect the family's quality of life on a daily basis. We want to find deserving people who just don't have the resources, ability, or time to fix those serious issues without our help.”
The popular ABC show does major renovations on homes owned by a deserving family with a compelling story to tell.
Producers say to be eligible, 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.
Interested families should e-mail a short description of their family story to: VirginiaCasting@gmail.com
Nominations may be submitted by the family or by a member of their community. Each nomination must include the names and ages of every member of the household along with a description of the major challenges within the home.
Anyone submitting a nomination should be sure to explain why the nominated family is deserving, heroic, and/or a great role model for their community. If possible, include a recent photo of the family. All nominations must include a contact phone number.
The deadline for nominations is April 19th, 2010. Further information is available on ABC's s Web site.
