Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in New York City? Do you want to be on TV? Do you live in Brooklyn?
A New York production company is looking for a family who would move to Brooklyn, New York, for a few months — one semester — while a Brooklyn, New York, family moves to Brooklyn, Mississippi.
The show, called “Brooklyn USA!,” will feature families from Brooklyns in other states who trade places with the New York family.
There are more than a dozen states with a town named Brooklyn, and Tenafly Film Co. Chairman Eric Weber wants to get to know each community through its people. Mississippi will be one of the states the company hopes to feature on its new show.
Never miss a local story.
“We want to explore how the families are doing, what they’re liking, what they’re not,” he said. “More importantly we want to explore what unites us.”
Two documentarians will be in the Hattiesburg area the week of March 5 to talk to local Brooklyn residents who have expressed an interested in spending a semester in Brooklyn, New York.
“We want to highlight the humanity and the humor,” Weber said. “And hopefully find there are more similarities than differences.”
Tenafly team members Josh Sugarman and Sean Devaney have worked on other shows including the series, “Football Town,” which recently ran on the NFL Network.
The series was shot in Valdosta, Georgia, and followed Valdosta High School’s 2016 championship season.
Other Tenafly productions include the feature film “Emily and Tim.”
