Via Angry Asian Man comes this casting call:
ABC's hit show SUPERNANNY is currently looking for Asian-American families with children (infant to teens) to take part in its hit television series featuring Jo Frost, one of the United Kingdom's top nannies.
Using the expert techniques that have made ABC's SUPERNANNY a hit show, (and her book a New York Times bestseller), Jo Frost works with families to help tame even the rowdiest infants, kids and teens, restoring balance to American households. Jo offers hands-on advice to parents on how to achieve the best possible work/family balance, get the best out of kids, (while still letting them be kids), and guide the family unit to a positive place. The series is an intelligent, informative look at childcare and parenting in the 21st century.
What are the parenting challenges particular to Asian-American family life? How are the issues in the APA family exactly like every other family? Supernanny is interested in showing our national audience the ups and down of parenting in families of all ethnic/national backgrounds; we haven't yet had an Asian-American family on our show and we're actively looking!
Interested families should email us at email@example.com , or go to www.ABC.com keyword "supernanny," or call 1-877-NANNY-TIME.
AAM writes that "it would be kind of interesting to see an Asian American family on the show."
What, and expose all that model-minority/inscrutable-Asian stuff for the lies and stereotypes they are? On national t.v.? By letting our kids have tantrums on the floor and beat us into submission? Heh.
Well, any takers? MetroDad, Peanut still kicking your ass?
