Reality TV Show Application News - January 2003
E! reports that ABC is casting for a new reality series based on a hit British show called "Wife Swap." While it's not quite the swingers' scene viewers might expect, the kooky concept might have some family-friendly critics up in arms. Wife Swap features two women who trade husbands, kids and homes for 10 days.
Reuters reports that in a novel blend of TV formats that could hardly be further apart, ABC plans to inject a bit of "reality" -- in this case a search for five of America's sexist men -- into the fantasy world of its popular soap opera "All My Children."
