Television Projects and Special Offers

Now and then I get information on events, outings and projects that may be of interest to you, my dear readers.  Today I have two for you.  
The first came yesterday in the form of an email about CBS' new show "The Talk" which features Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete and Marissa Jaret Winokur as the hosts.  The show's executive producer very nicely asked if any of my readers would like to organize a "VIP Mommy's (or Daddy's) Morning Off" at a taping of their show.  

It's a chance to get away in the middle of the hectic day, spend time with your friends and listen to the lively discussion (ie: have some adult time).  The show tapes live from 11-12, giving parents in the audience time to get home before their children finish school.

From Brad, the executive producer: 
"The Talk is live at 2PM EST on CBS (which means we tape in Los Angeles at 11AM).  We shoot Monday-Thursday at 11AM, and do Friday's show at 1PM on Thursday.  Our hosts begin the day by talking about the news of the day which for us could be a news making interview, an event, or one of our host's bad hair day or child's first day at school. Then, we will introduce our celebrity guest. We round out the show with other topical bookings, guests, authors, parenting advice and human interest stories.  Some examples of topics: When do you talk to your children about sex, working moms, how to cut your family's grocery bill in half, can you protect your children from bullies, flying with children and surviving the terrible twos.
Betsy Brown Braun will be on the show on October 27th, along with Jamie Lee Curtis.  Betsy will follow a humorous  "terrible two opera" tape piece and give some real take-away information for two year olds and tips and scripts to deal with this time in our children's lives.
Tickets are available at the CBS website; BUT, I want your readers to get the special VIP treatment.  If any of your readers want to attend a taping of The Talk, they can e-mail my audience producer Danny Verdugo directly at and say they are 'A FRIEND OF BRAD.'  He will arrange for seats at any of our tapings.  They need to arrive no later than 9:30AM for our 11AM LIVE show.

On background, the show is the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, of "Roseanne" fame.  After she had her second child, Sara felt disconnected from the world, so she found her way to a mother's group who would meet once a week in her house and talk about EVERYTHING - what was up with their children, the news, their bodies, their diets, their husbands and partners. In this group, they found friendship, fun and a new sense of empowerment to live their lives more fully for themselves and for their families. One day, Sara thought, "This should be a television show."  And, CBS agreed."
 Taping Times:   Monday - Thursday 11AM PST, Thursday 1PM
 VIP's Arrive NO LATER than 9:30AM.
 Location: CBS Radford, Studio 16  
4024 Radford Avenue Studio City, CA  91604
So, this offer is for any taping; the one with Betsy Brown Braun and Jamie Lee Curtis (who writes children's books now) was highlighted as Brad felt it would be of specific interest to readers of The Twin Coach, but because all of the hosts are mothers, parenting and family topics will be discussed on every show. Extend this offer to your friends, offer it to your MOMS clubs and I hope some of you can take advantage of this as it sounds like fun!

The second part of this post is about a Parenting Television Project which someone I trust implicitly is involved in; she passed along this Family Casting Notice:
  • Are your kids' lives scheduled down to the minute?
  • Do you drive your kids to soccer practice, piano lessons. dance lessons, a language tutor, schedule all of their play dates and help with homework every night?
  • Are you a super parent who is involved in every aspect of your kids' lives?
If so, a television production company casting for a new TV show for a major cable network would like to speak with you.
We're seeking dynamic, open and honest families who live in Los Angeles to participate in a new show that will help give parents the tools they need to support, nurture and care for their kids in a constructive way - while giving them room to grow.
If this describes your situation or that of someone you know, please send a short note about the family, detailing the problem(s), along with your contact information via email only to
This is not my usual style of post, but sometimes a little something light is good in between all the deep stuff! ;-)

Thanks for reading!
