I reported a couple weeks ago that “Family Feud,” thanks to host and Atlanta resident Steve Harvey, is coming to shoot its 2011-12 season in Atlanta, moving from Orlando.
We now have details on how to become an audience member. It’s free but you have to be at least 16 years of age. The show will be shot at the Atlanta Civic Center from July 7 to 10. Times differ each day. That place holds more 4,500 people so it shouldn’t be hard to get a seat.
You can sign up here at http://on-camera-audiences.com/shows/Family_Feud.
You can sign up for a tryout to be one of the families on the show by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is here at https://sites.google.com/a/familytryouts.com/tryouts/ Auditions are June 26 but you have to email them first.
If you can’t make it to the June 26 tryouts, you can upload videos, three to five minutes in length, of your family. Here’s the advice on the website:
The beginning of your video should include introductions of each family member. Have each person introduce themselves. Tell us something interesting and unique about yourself. Talk about your family, your occupation, your hobbies or anything that you think is relevant. Some families play a mock round of the game.
Have fun with it, use props if you like! Even if it’s corny, it’s ok! Do your best to show us why your family would be great on the Feud!
You can then upload the video on YouTube and email email@example.com or you can mail a DVD to:
Fremantle Media NA
4000 West Alameda Ave.
Burbank, CA 91505
attn: Family Feud Casting Dept.
And here’s basic eligibility:
* Must have 5 family members related by blood, marriage or legal adoption
* You must be a US citizen or have permission to work within the United States.
* If anyone on the team knows or is related to anyone employed by Fremantle Media, Debmar-Mercury, KCAL CHANNEL 9, Wanderlust Productions, or any affiliate that carries the Family Feud they are ineligible.
* If anyone on the team is running for political office or has been on more than two (2) game shows in the last year they are also ineligible.
* If you or anyone on your team has appeared on Family Feud before, it must 10 years since the prior appearance to be eligible to play again.
