Casting call wish list: home cooks, electronic dance fans, daring women

Everyone seems to want to be in a reality TV show, and Doron Ofir Casting is hoping to make dreams come true. The casting group is looking for home cooks, electronic dance fans and women "who dare to be different." But that's not all: They're also casting shows about fanboys and girls, spurned lovers, entrepreneurial college students, people with bad tattoos and for tug-of-war champs.

They're all for real! Check out the casting call page at the site by clicking I'm not sure what networks are picking up some of these shows, but a few of them already are set to air on MTV. Read more specifics from Doron Ofir Casting about three of the recently announced shows below.

It's My Life
In a society that often serves up mixed messages encouraging us to be bold and brave yet bombards us with social media where everyone is a critic, this series seeks to explore what it is really like to live and love while enmeshed in an alternative lifestyle, or living out a unique personal choice. Doron Ofir Casting is seeking women who dare to be different for a brand new docu-series on a major cable network. Whether you are exploring alternative religions, relationships, career choices, sub cultures, secret lives, or physical modifications we want to share your story to help people understand the risks, rewards, and benefits to help explain why you are proud to live your provocative life.

Regardless of what your specific circumstance may be, straying from social norms may not be easy but sometimes it is the key that sets you free. Apply at
