Subject: ABC seeks families who wear fursuits! $20,000!
Dear Sir or Madam,
I'm a Casting Producer with ABC Television and we're looking for unique families with unique interests and lifestyles to feature on our primetime documentary-style programming. I'd love to feature a family who wears and collects fur suits on "Wife Swap," ABC's family show that allows two very different families the opportunity to experience a different lifestyle and while also teaching another family about their own family philosophy. We'd love to feature families who perhaps perform in the children's entertainment field - or even families who wear fur suits to ConFurence-type events to celebrate their love of animals. Whatever the reasoning behind it, we think fur suits are interesting – and we’re betting our viewers do too! Our show is about showcasing different interests, past times, and sub cultures in America. We're looking for a really outgoing fun fur suit wearing family who could bring a lot of fun and whimsy into the lives of another family for a week.
Please don't be confused by the title - Wife Swap is a family show on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two very different families get the opportunity to swap lives (but not bedrooms - everyone has their own!) for a week to experience what it's like to live a different lifestyle - and to see what they can teach each other about their own! In this case we're looking to feature outgoing families with unique interests and hobbies - and all the fun that goes along with it.
All featured families will receive a $20,000 financial honorarium - and $1000 goes to anyone who refers a family that makes it on the show! We are looking for two parent families with children (between the ages of 5 and 18) who are ready for adventure! I appreciate your help with reaching out to these great families and look forward to hearing from you soon!

****REMOVED CONTACT INFORMATION BECAUSE I THINK THIS IS A VERY, VERY BAD IDEA TO EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING.. PLEASE guys, DON'T CONTACT THEM. $20,000 really isn't worth making a joke of you. Didn't you guys ever see the episode with the FANATIC Christian woman? OMG that was scary. I see this as being the same.
