CASTING CALL: NUMISMATIC FAMILY SOUGHT FOR ABC'S WIFE SWAP

Roger dewardt Lane forwarded a query from Meghan McGinley, a Casting
Producer for the ABC Television reality show, Wife Swap.  She writes:
"In case you are not familiar with the show, the premise of Wife Swap
is simple: for two weeks, two wives from two different families
exchange husbands, children and lives (but not bedrooms) to discover
what it’s like to live a different woman’s life. The show airs on ABC
on Monday nights at 8pm – family hour! It offers a positive experience
for people not only to teach, but to learn about different family values.

We are casting for the remaining episodes of third season of our show,
and we are focusing on finding fun and outgoing families with interesting
hobbies for upcoming episodes. I thought it would be cool to feature
a family that is involved in the Hobby of Kings – coin collecting!

I was hoping to find a family of Numismatists, where everyone – Mom, Dad
and the kids – are all passionate about the hobby and participate together.
We often feature sports families on our show, but rarely have an
opportunity to focus on more academic ways to spend family time together.
I thought that this might be a step in the right direction, and was
hoping you would be willing to spread the word! We are casting for
February and March of 2007, so casting is happening NOW!"

[Roger wondered if this was legitimate or some crazy Internet spam.
To find out, I took a moment to review the email and its associated
web links.  The sites are real, and I took a moment to call Meghan and
had a nice chat with her.  It all sounds legit.  The family must live
in the continental USA, with no members in the military and at least
one child between the ages of 6-17 living full time in the home.
