TV Show Wants to Know if You and Your In-Laws Fight About Religious Differences

I can’t vouch for whether this is a good idea or not, but for anyone interested, this email came in from a TV producer:

I am an Associate Producer with Left Field Pictures and we are working on a new series about couples dealing with issue with their In-Laws. I am reaching out to the non religious community because we would like to devote an episode to a couple looking for acceptance from their parents/ In-Laws who do not share the same belief system.

The show is being produced by A&E which is a highly reputable network. The show aims to treat everyone involved with respect and understanding. It is handles tough issues as light heartedly as possible, and everything is produced in the spirit of reconciliation!

    “…highly reputable network” my ass.

    – Dog the Bounty Hunter
    – Gene Simmons Family Jewels
    – The Hasselhoffs
    – Hoarders
    – Growing Up Twisted
    etc.

    Don’t do it! They always show everyone in the worst possible light.

    Don’t they have proof-readers at Left Field? I know it’s nit-picky, but if you are sending out official-ish correspondence, you would think they could follow proper sentence structure.

    You mean the channel that shows Paranormal State and Psychic Kids? This phrase, “highly reputable network”, I do not think it means what you think it means.

  • Anonymous

    Hey you guys! You’ve got A&E all wrong!….

    You forgot Paranormal Cops.

  • Claudia

    What @A Portlander said. A network that promotes augmenting the delusions of troubled children instead of helping them seek out the treatment they so obviously need is anything but reputable.
    I wouldn’t want to contribute to their exploitative channel to make them more money and I wouldn’t trust them to give a fair portrayal of the situation either.

    Reality television isn’t.

    my atheist friend just recently SWORE she had a paranormal encounter and she never thought she’d believe in crap like that but ‘she knows what she saw’

    I dont know why I typed that…because i still agree with the comments

    Sadly “atheist” and “skeptic” are not one and the same. All atheist means is that you don’t have one belief that lacks any credible evidence. You can still believe in a million other equally ridiculous propositions.

    If you have a chance, gently ask your friend whether she would have any way of distinguishing a vivid hallucination from a “real” paranormal event. Then ask her which is more likely; a chemical hiccup in her brain, or the existence of magic beings/an afterlife? For which one do we have ample evidence and countless studies and for which is there absolutely no evidence? It’s a scary thing to admit that your brain has just played a nasty little trick on you, but it’s a lot more honest than to declare that the Universe must be a very different place, because you couldn’t possibly be mistaken about what you “saw”.

    @liz

    Have your friend watch this talk that Michael Shermer gave at TED. Might help explain what she/he saw.

  • Amy,

    Your concept might work but only if you get “The Hoff” to star in it.

    I read somewhere that he is available for work 🙂 having being let go after just two episodes in his last jig.

    I’m gay. I’m not ALLOWED to have in-laws. Left Field Pictures can get bent.
