If you need to work out some family issues and think it might be fun do that on an all-expense-paid, two-week "tropical trip of a lifetime" — oh, and while camera crews film your every move for all the world to watch — the producers of a new primetime Discovery Channel survival show would like to talk with you.
"Ideally we are looking for families of four with some sort of problem they need to overcome," says Maddie Henri, a casting researcher for production house Naked Entertainment, which is creating the show for Discovery. "Perhaps a stepfather and stepson don't get on, or a grandfather is attempting to decide between his son and grandson who will carry on the family business."
Producers think military and veteran families might be a particularly good fit "as they would have some experience in harsh conditions," Henri says.
Anyone appearing in the show must be 18 or older at the time of filming, which is slated to begin by October.
"Our aim is to bring out-of-touch families closer together through an exotic survival experience where you'll need to pull together to survive," reads the show's casting call. "This show will see families braving 14 days in a remote location for the ultimate survival adventure in the wilderness. This could be a short, sharp shock for feuding family members and a chance for a fresh start as a stronger family unit."
If you're interested in nominating your family, email the producers with your name, age, location and a brief explanation of why you want to be part of the show, along with some recent photos, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Launched last year, Naked Entertainment is helmed by Simon Andreae, executive producer of "Hell's Kitchen," "So You Think You Can Dance," "Fast 'N Loud", and yes, "Naked and Afraid" among others. Henri says participants in this current project will be clothed.
Casting will close at the end of June.
