[KHTS] – Casting Director Jane Livshin is looking for families in the Santa Clarita Valley and Los Angeles County to cast in the pilot of a new reality television show, “Backyard Makeover,” for the A&E network FYI.
During the show, a celebrity landscape designer will transform an overgrown or unusable backyard into a backyard that the family has always dreamed of, according to a press release from Livshin.
To be considered for a role in the show, families must have a backyard that is in serious need of a makeover, with overgrown weeds and bushes, dry brush or dying trees.
Livshin will be accepting submissions during the next couple of weeks and choose a family to star in the pilot by mid May.
Filming is scheduled to start during the second week of June.
The show will allow the family to get involved in the makeover of their backyard, Livshin said, but also include a big “reveal” at the end of each episode, after the designer has added his special touches.
