Want to be a green reality TV star?

Have you ever watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and thought to yourself, “Wow. That TV show sure is using a lot of resources. That aren’t green. Or environmentally friendly?”

Well, ReGeneration Productions is aiming to create a reality television show for you, dear reader. It’s called Sustain the Rain and it’s being billed as “Seattle’s first sustainability

makeover television show.”

Doesn’t sound like your cup of TV? Maybe you’re just imagining this from the wrong side of the fence. It turns out the TV show, which is the brainchild of Rose Thornton, pictured at right, is also seeking a host for the show and expert consultants.

Here is what the show is looking for: a green business consultant, a green transportation consultant, a green chef/food consultant, a green interior home consultant, a green exterior home consultant, a Pacific Northwest outdoors consultant and a green personal care consultant.

Everyone involved in the show must be well connected to Seattle’s environmental community, able to donate evening and weekend time during a pilot shoot this July and August, comfortable in front of a camera and passionate about the environment.

Sound like you? Then you need to e-mail Rose at rosecthornton@gmail.com to receive an extended list of qualifications. You also need to sign up to audition for a part. Auditions are this Saturday between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the meeting room of the Greenwood Branch of Seattle Public Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N. Audition time slots last 15 minutes. Those auditioning for consultant spots must prepare a two to five minute description of how to “make-over” a lifestyle choice in your area of expertise.

Here’s to being a green movie star!

    It sounds like you are selecting for political people and people with a vested interest in career or personal promotion of some kind. Unfortunately, if you don’t broaden your net, you are going to end up with a boring program populated with dull people espousing the “talking headline du jour”.
    In any case, good luck.

    James, What would you suggest going in search of? It’s easy to pick apart others ideas, much harder to start something of your own.

    I wish I lived in Seattle, this sounds like such a cool project to be involved with. My wife and I watch the Planet Green channel all the time and noticed that more and more shows are trying to go green across all the TV networks.

    Thanks for the post and good luck to all who try to get on the show.

    I am so excited to see your show. Good luck I am sure you wont need it. Please update us when your looking for a project. I would love my mother to go green and she lives in Shelton.

    Wow! This sounds like a great idea and perfect for Seattle. I’m surprised that no one though of this before. I’m glad you’re looking for sustainability experts. My favorite reality shows are one’s in which the cast really knows their stuff and are fun professionals. Good luck and have fun with this awesome project!
