Love Thy Neighbor, Win Thy Cash

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A reality show production company is putting a modern spin on the Hatfields and the McCoys, and they’re looking for families to fill the part.

Casting directors are looking for squabbling neighbors who have a beef with each other and want to tell the world about it for a TBS show that’s tentatively titled Love Thy Neighbor.

Roz Taylor-Jordan, the show’s V.P. of casting, says any type of gripe will be considered, from a neighbor’s dog pooping on your lawn to kids making a racket in the street with their skateboards.

Producers have an altruistic side too. They’re hoping they can get the families to bury the hatchet – and not in each other’s backs.

Not all feuding neighbors will want to air their grievances to America, but Jordan says if one family applies, they’ll try and sweet talk the opposing family into appearing in the show.

And if that fails, she says she’ll tell them about the big incentive. To quote her, “Tens of thousands of dollars. Money talks.”
