Does YOUR family have what it takes to compete in a hilarious, outrageous new reality game show?

A major cable network, the award-winning production company that brought you Big Brother, Fly on the Wall Entertainment, and MysticArt Pictures are now casting nationwide!

Is your family larger than life, ultra competitive, unpredictable, really entertaining, and far from harmonious at family holidays?

Do fights break out? Who causes them?

Now seeking families of at least 5 people, including wild siblings, eccentric uncles, doting grandmothers, competitive cousins, and the in-laws, anyone in your extended family 18 or older, who is ready to go head to head for the family's chance to win up to $25,000!
