The Reality of Durham, NC

Durham was named a must-visit destination in The New York Times article The 41 Places to Go in 2011. Now, just four months into 2011, Durham is attracting attention as a casting destination for film and television. HGTV and CMT have two upcoming casting opportunities for Durhamites to share their lives and community through reality television.

Without a doubt, Durham's real estate market is hot. In 2010, the Wall Street Journal named Durham one of the best places to make a real estate investment. While many of these investors are of retirement age, a growing number of Durham's newest real estate investors are first time home buyers, a.k.a. property virgins. For this very reason, HGTV has selected Durham as the next location for Property Virgins, a house-hunting reality television series now in its 8th season. Property Virgins will cast first time home buyers in their early 20's to mid 30's with varying taste in housing styles, neighborhoods and budgets. For casting inquiries and additional information, contact Property Virgins here.

CMT is flipping the switch on MTV's Emmy award-winning series MADE and they're asking for Durham's help. The self-improvement reality television series that has helped hundreds of teens will shift its focus to parents under CMT's production. MADE transforms the lives of its participants by giving them the opportunity to pursue personal goals, dreams and aspirations. Men and women who appear to be at least in their early 30's are encouraged to attend an open casting call to be hosted at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on May 7th.

CMT, HGTV and their respective reality television series provide yet another opportunity to share Durham's community, culture and values on a national scale. So, get out there, and show them why Durham is where great things happen.
