Super Nanny is Looking for Park Slope Families

The casting director for the popular ABC TV show Super Nanny has contacted Hip Slope Mama to let us know that the producers of the show are making a big push to cast a NY family for Season 5.
She's asked HSM to let families know that now through September casting is looking specifically for families from the NYC area and, according to her, families from Park Slope would be ideal!

Here are the details: Basically they are looking for parents who are really overwhelmed. It could be organization - mom just started back to work or the kids are in a ton of activities, etc. It could be they have a lot of young children or just are having trouble with discipline or bedtime or mealtime.

They are hoping to make a casting trip out to the NYC area in September. Hip Slope Mama subscribers can skip a couple of steps in the application process and get in touch directly with Shari Ast, the casting producer working in this region. She can be reached at:

Hailed by the New York Times as "fascinating" and "required viewing"; praised by Oprah Winfrey, David Letterman and Kelly Ripa; acclaimed by such publications as Newsweek, Hollywood Reporter and The New Yorker; and lauded by parents and nannies across America, Supernanny is a hit. Jo Frost, as Supernanny, can tame the wildest toddler, soothe the savage six-year-old and get the most difficult child to overcome problems with behavior, sleep, mealtime, potty training and other challenges that have vexed parents around the world for centuries. After just three episodes of the show aired in the U.K. in summer 2004, Jo Frost became Britain's hottest new TV star and godsend to desperate parents who were dazzled by her amazing results with unruly children. She debuted in America in early 2005 and captivated Americans as well with her practical, no-nonsense style, honed over 16 years of nannying. Supernanny is now an international phenomenon; it airs in 47 countries, almost all of them with Frost as Supernanny. The series was nominated for a People's Choice Award, and her book, Supernanny: How to Get the Best from Your Children spent 17 weeks on on the New York Times bestseller list, hitting #1 for much of that time.
