Are you part of an outgoing, talkative, loud Jewish family? And are you looking for a new place to live? And are you dying to have the whole experience air on national TV?

Then consider applying for the WB's upcoming "The Relocation Show." The new reality show (produced by RDF Media, the British production company that created "Wife Swap"), helps make the process of selecting a new place to live slightly less daunting and will move the family anywhere in the 50 states, including Hawaii.

"We are looking for people who cannot agree on where to live," said "Relocation's" casting producer, James Davis. "The show is a mechanism to help them make the decision. Hopefully they'll be really happy."

During each hourlong episode, viewers will meet the family, who will talk about where they do and don't want to move. If mom wants Chicago night life and dad wants a ranch in Dallas, the show arranges for the family to spend a week in each location (at a home they can afford), with the assistance of life coaches, real estate and relocation experts and, of course, a camera crew to document it all. Plus, the show will pay for the move. Over the closing credits viewers get "a where are they now?" update.

Interested families (preferably with children) should have strong personalities.

"We're looking for outgoing, talkative and fun families -- to me that sounds like any average Jewish family," said Davis via e-mail. He said he speaks from personal experience, as a member of a loud, Jewish family from England.

The show is also looking for life coaches and people with nationwide real estate experience.

Overall, Davis said he wants "real people. We want to make a happy ending, not make people look or feel stupid."
