A new reality show, where the customer gets to run the store, is seeking extroverts with ready-made opinions to appear in a program produced by TLC and the Oprah Winfrey Network.
The focus of the yet-to-be named production is two struggling businesses looking to the local community for help. In Salt Lake City's case, according to a press release from the casting director for the show, Scott Goldstein, the show will revolve around Mrs. Fields Cookies and TCBY Frozen Yogurt.
The idea is that customers who love either of these brands will, according to the release, "be given the chance of a lifetime, to help a brand that they love re-establish itself. The show is extremely positive and allows the average everyday customer a chance to work with and help reconfigure one of their favorite companies."
You only need to be 18 or over and in love with Mrs. Fields or TCBY for a shot at appearing on the show. The chosen actors will be paid for their time. Goldstein notes in the press release it might even lead to a position in the company.
