Church Plant Reality Show

I'm sure many of you have seen this: Hi, I'm a casting director with Bunim-Murray Productions (Real World, Starting Over, The Scholar), and I'm currently working on a TV show about a pastor who is starting a new church. I found your church information on the Emergent Church website and since this is the type of church we'd like to document I thought you may have some good suggestions for pastors who are hoping to start a new church in the coming year. We are still in the developmental stage of this process, but we're looking for a dynamic pastor that we can follow as he plants a church over the course of the year. Some of the costs for the first year will be covered by our production company. If this is something of interest to you or if you can recommend someone else with whom I could speak, please feel free to email or call so that we can discuss this further. Thanks for your time. Best, Jaye Pace Casting Director Bunim-Murray Productions [EDIT : I omitted the Contact Information.]

    God help us; this seems to bring ‘Commercial Christianity’ to a new low.

    What an opportunity to share the gospel to the hopelessly lost! Frightening but exciting…

    Does the church get a million dollars at the end of the season? Does the pastor get to vote people out of the church? Are their immunity challenges? Is there a big scale to measure how thin you get when you can’t afford to feed yourself? Maybe you can “swap” a church planter with some mormon Bishop! The possibilties of making Jesus “real” to the world are endless…
