A casting agency has put out a call for grandmothers for a reality show said to be for a ‘major network.’
TheCastingFirm.com has stated that they are looking for grandmothers in their 30s, who feel their children are too young to be making them grandmothers already and those in their 30s who have their sons or daughters and their children living with them.
On GotCast.com, mothers have already applied to be on show described as, “Seeking young grandmothers for a starring role in the brand new series ‘30 Something Grandmas’. The show will showcase the stories of extraordinary women whose lives have been changed by the unexpected arrival of a new family member and the even more surprising title of ‘Grandma’!”
With shows like “Teen Mom” and “16 and Pregnant” suppose it was only a matter of time before another reality show came along that focused on the parents of these young parents.
Sadly, with the birth rate among the Latino population and the young age at which many Latinas have children, we can’t help but wonder how many of these “30-something grandmas” will be Latino.
