Calling all Arizona women looking for a fresh start at life: You could be the next star of the television reality show "Starting Over."
The show produced by NBC Enterprises is wrapping up its first season, and seeks candidates for a second season to air this September through May 2005, said casting executive Shannon Powers.
The show airs locally on KPNX-TV (Channel 12) at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays, said Diane Herzog, a spokeswoman for the show.
Casting executives seek women who feel they are trapped in dead-end careers, unable to take steps to find new love after failed relationships, overwhelmed with debt or just seeking help making major changes in their lives, Herzog said.
"It’s for women who want a kick-start in life," Powers said.
Six women will be chosen to live together in a house for six to 10 weeks while they work on meeting life-changing goals, Powers said. Each cast member should have focused goals and will work daily with "life coaches" to help her meet those objectives.
"We’ll give them steps to help themselves," she said.
Once a woman has met her goals — changing her outlook on life, boosting her selfesteem or simply getting to the place in life that she wants to be, she will leave the house and a new candidate will move in, Powers said. The cast will evolve over the season.
Powers recommends women attend the casting with specific goals in mind.
"Have an idea in mind of what you would like to change," she said.
Powers said the reality series has been extremely successful in Arizona. To date, no Arizona women have been cast in the show.
