Are you a fearless, tireless, and totally dedicated, real Hockey Mom who wants to star in your own reality TV show? Here's your big chance!
Hockey Moms is coming to Minnesota this winter on 45TV in the Twin Cities and KAAL-TV in the Rochester/Albert Lea/Austin area.
The program's producers at McCally-Lee Entertainment (www.mccallylee.com) have begun the search for cast members.
McCally-Lee Entertainment specifically seeks colorful Hockey Moms and fun, dramatic families from Minnesota, the State of Hockey and the land of 10,000+ frozen hockey rinks.
With the passage of time since the initial Spring 2014 Hockey Moms casting call, the producers want more relevant moms (and their hockey-centric families) that are available for the shooting schedule this fall, necessitating a new series casting outreach and process.
Online casting calls began Wednesday, August 19, and will end Wednesday, September 9. Interested candidates must apply online within the three-week window at www.hockeymom.tv.
The final selection is anticipated to be announced on Wednesday, September 16, after two rounds of call backs for Top 20 and then Top Three finalists.
Hockey Moms will premiere Saturday, December 26, 2015, (check local listings), with the Season One finale shown on Saturday, March 5, 2016, immediately before the Boys State AA High School Hockey Championship telecast. During the Girls Hockey Championship on Saturday, February 20, 2016, Hockey Moms is scheduled to air immediately following the AA Championship Game. Weekly repeats will occur throughout the television show's broadcast season (see local listings for times).
“At 45TV and Hubbard Broadcasting, we want to encourage and support local programming,” said Susan Wenz, KSTC-TV45 Station Manager. “We think Hockey Moms is a great example of that commitment. The show works well with the 45TV brand of high school sports. It is a win-win in so many ways."
"My Co-Executive Producer and business partner Randy Lee and I are very excited about this fantastic programming and promotional partnership with 45TV and KAAL-TV," notes John McCally, McCally-Lee Entertainment CEO and Show Creator. "Hockey Moms will be a fun, dramatic and emotional television series that will appeal to all Minnesotans, and others outside the state, whether they have an association with hockey or not."
