Want to Go to Ennis, Ireland? Audition for UK-Based Reality TV Show, Twin Towns.
By this time next week, a large group of Phoenicians will remember the city's semi-Irish heritage, and with any luck, a few will be given the chance to fly to the Emerald Isle for a week to check out their roots.
UK production company Knickerbockerglory and the producers of docu-soap Pineapple Dance Studios are currently casting for a new reality series, Twin Towns, in which families from sister cities or "twin towns" swap lives for a week.
Phoenix's twin town: Ennis, Ireland.
The reality show will be broadcast on UK channel Sky Atlantic. Representatives from the production company say they're looking for "quirky" (read: reality television kind of "quirky") families who are available between April 16 and June 31.
The chosen local family will swap homes, jobs, schools, and food (pack a snack), for one week ... all while being filmed for the series.
