VH1 to debut new 'I Know My Kid's a Star' reality series on March 13
UPI News Service, 03/05/2008
Former U.S. child star Danny Bonaduce will be seen mentoring aspiring young actors and their stage parents in a new reality show, VH1 said Wednesday.
Bonaduce is best known for his work on the 1970s sit-com "The Patridge Family."
His new show, "I Know My Kid's a Star," is to premiere March 20 on VH1.
A sneak peek of the first episode will be available on VH1.com, starting March 13.
The show challenges Bonaduce to seek out "one great, aspiring, triple-threat, stage-hungry kid, identify them as a star and train their driven, stage mom or dad to be a supportive and fit parent who won't end up driving their kid into rehab," VH1 said in a statement.
During the course of eight, hour-long episodes, the series will feature 10 parent/child teams living in a house in Los Angeles, willing to do whatever it takes so the kid can be a star.
Bonaduce and casting director/manager Marki Costello will judge the teams based on skill level, poise, likability and stage presence.
In the end, one team will win $50,000 in cash and a year of representation by Costello.
