So, I get this email from a casting agent, casting a new Reality Show on a "Major Network." The agent found me on the Internet via HubPages. She read my hub, "I Love to Clean." They are casting for the pilot of the new show, fairly soon, and she seems to like me. This is not to say that I will get it, because as most of you know, I don't have a home anymore, because "I lost my home to foreclosure." However the power of HubPages is alive and well.
Yea for HubPages.
...sending some good thoughts your way fastfreta...hope it works out for you!
This is such awesome and encouraging news. Congratulations! I hope many more good things come your way!!
Casting call, I thought for sure you meant that this was about something you've written. I didn't think reality show. However, if it's something to help you out, good luck.
Good luck and congrats. Keep us updated on how it works out.
Right on Freta, I hope this works out for you! So sorry about your house, I went through a bad time last year and had to really put up a fight to save the family home. It's been a major battle, but I still had equity. Praying things turn around for the better for you!!
How cool! Sending lots of good wishes your way.
Wow! That's amazing. -- almost as amazing as a reality show about people who like to clean. Hope it all goes well and is profitable for you.
Are you still riding the rails?
Actually that is what the show is all about, (People who like to clean), and that's how they found me, on HubPages. I'm currently not on the road, however I hope to be in upstate New York for a family reunion the last week in July. I also plan to hit the road again soon I hope.
They contacted me also. It was just screamed scam, so I deleted the message.
How cool is that? Best wishes, fastfreta. You love to clean?
Thank you all, although I don't know if I'd be comfortable with cameras following me around, however I would love the income, if there's any. Again, because I don't have my home anymore, I don't know if this will work for me.
More good wishes that it works out well for you coming your way. If you end up in front of that camera, maybe you could let us know how we could watch the show.
Hi fastfreta, That's awesome news. Congrats and Best Wishes! I hope things turn well for you...
Update! I've just been interviewed by the Executive Producer, and "she liked me, she really liked me," (shades of Sally Fields, during her award acceptance speech).
Freta...So cool! We are all rooting for you and you can betcha our bottom dollars we will all be your biggest fan club if you get into the Reality Show!! Great you got the opportunity from your Hubs!
Interesting! I wish you the best outcome. Please keep us posted!
Excellent... good on you!
A perfect opportunity to make sure that their casting couch is clean also!
I am so very happy for you. Congratulations! See, hard work does pay off! Best wishes in all that you do! You will be great...we can say...we knew her when...
Let know when the episode is to air. I'm sure it will be one of the best ones. Congratulations!
That is so cool! I look forward to hearing what comes of it. Wonder what angle they'll take to use people who like to clean - maybe they'll pair you up with hopeless cases.
Again thank you all for your best wishes. So here goes the next step. Wednesday I will be doing what is called a "Teaser Reel." I'm still not sure I can pass muster. I'll keep you all up on the progress.
Oh wow... a teaser reel.... which will be used to help sell their show and give both potential investors and audiences an 'insight' to what and who the show will contain... Congrats.. I would say that if you get through this.. you will be a star! Yippeeee!
Hey Pearldiver, did you ever see that I Love Lucy episode where Lucy thought that a producer would take one look at her tape and say, "That face, get me that face, I must have that face?" Well I'm saying that now. LOL, LOL! ::
OhNo.... don't bite your nails
Practice your Shimmy and Smile Routine!
Hey... gotta have a competitive edge over the wipe-it-on-wipe-it-off girls!
Just be your 'bad' fastreta self and you will be in for sure!
Well I got through the first phase, and to say the least, they were more than pleased with the interview, and, well, so was I. We have a second portion to go through today, I'll get back to you guys after that.
Just tell me when, habee, and I'll be there. LOL!
So I've passed all the phases up til now, and again, "They liked me, they really liked me," so now it's a wait and see, I was told at least two weeks. Stay tuned for followups.
I posted a comment here just 6 days ago and day before yesterday I got my own email from a major casting agency for a different reality show also based on them finding me through one of my articles. Just goes to show, you never know who's reading your stuff, folks!
Wish me luck!
WOW! I reiterate "Yea for the power of HubPages." Here's wishing you the best, KCC Big Country. I've got to go back and check out your post.
KCC, please send me the link to your post here in the forum.
I just find it fascinating that when I posted my congratulatory comments to your great news I had absolutely no idea that I would have a similar thing happen to me just days later!
Well today was pitch day. I did get a call for pictures to be emailed, I don't know what that means.
The post I am referring to is in this forum. Just scroll up to a few days ago.
Fastfreta, this is such great news so congrats and very best wishes with this from me too! I know all sorts of media people read the hubs here because I have got work that way too and I think of this site as a good place to showcase your writings!
this is great news. I hope this works out for you. That will be awesome.
That is such great news, Fastfreta, and KCC too! I hope this works out well for you both!
Thanks guys, I've gotten several calls from the station for still pictures, I really don't know what that means. But at this time I'm at my family reunion in Upstate New York, so I'll just have to attend to that when I get home. I'll keep you all updated as things unfold.
I hope this one work. This is the other link that I mentioned.
no link is visible
but I do see from other forum posts that the casting call worked out for you, congrats!
I have a friend from High School who is an Executive Producer for an undisclosed reality network, she frequently posts legitimate casting calls on her facebook feed.
It is a very real opportunity, glad you realized that! Congrats!
This is tooo cool!! I can't wait to watch and look for you. You deserve good things, especially after reading about your house
Kudos to you and CONGRATULATIONS!!
Thank you so much cclitgirl, I'm like you I can't wait to see it either. You see they won't let me see it until everyone else sees it. This is truly nail biting time. I know what I did, but I don't know how it came across on film.

A New York based literary Agent has contacted me by email about my book, 'A Fairly Secret Army', and asked if I would be interested in having it published in paper back - what do you think?

I have now had my adsense account cancelled for whatever reason, only they know and it would be nice if adsense them selves would at least tell me why instead of me waiting for a new adsense account, standing by the computor ,waiting, waiting for five days now. Hubpages is at fault also because...

Hello fellow hubbers. I would like to get a comment with a refferal link removed, a link that I am not allowed to promote any longer. I have contacted the hub's author already but she might not be active any longer. I need the link removed as soon as possible. Please advise. Thanks

Is there a way to over-ride this? I was using the term "fetishism" in a sociological sense, but my ads were disabled after a day of publishing it. I read the terms and it said if it uses any adult content (including "fetish"), ads would be disabled. How do I...

How do I report plagiarism to Hubpages? Some other content farm author on this site below literally copied & pasted my entire hub! I already contacted the website and told them to take my article down and I directly contacted the author to ask her to take it down...but what if they don't? What...
