Phelps Media Group, Inc. Casting For ABC Family Television Show

The Phelps Media Group, Inc. (PMG), a public relations firm focused on promoting events and people in the equestrian world, is casting for a junior rider to appear on the ABC Family television show "Switched!" The producers of the show are interested in profiling a rider aged 16 to 20 that is currently competing in any equestrian discipline.

"Switched!" is a new teen reality show that gives two young people between the ages of 16 and 20 the chance to simultaneously trade lives during a four-day adventure. The challenge is to see how each person will cope in a new environment - dealing with a new family, new school, new friends, new activities and everything that involves trading a life with a counterpart somewhere else in the United States. The top-rated ABC show currently airs weekdays at 5:00 p.m.

Evolution Film & Tape, Inc. produces "Switched" for ABC Family television and has asked Phelps Media Group, Inc. to locate a young rider to appear on the show. "Switched!" is about real teens and what they say and do while undergoing this life experience. Although supervised by the producers, the entire experience is unscripted. The goal is not to embarrass but to enlighten. The producers intend for this to be a positive experience for everyone involved - the teenagers, their families and the viewers.

Phelps Media Group, Inc. is currently reviewing resumes of equestrians aged 16 to 20 that wish to be considered for "Switched" (no phone calls accepted). Equestrians are asked to e-mail resumes to or fax to 561-753-3386.
