The producers of the hit-U.K. television show Supernanny are coming to Sheepshead Bay on Monday in search of the smartest kids in America with a casting event at the Brooklyn Amity School (3867 Shore Parkway)
Shed Media US is gearing up for eight-part documentary series exploring the world of highly gifted and profoundly intelligent children and their families as they power through a rigorous academic competition developed by American MENSA. The show will feature kids with high IQs and extraordinary interests and abilities, while parents discuss how their kids’ hunger for knowledge affects their lives and share parenting tips.
The competition, to be broadcast on an undisclosed major national cable network, will take place over five weeks during summer vacation, and the winner will receive academic acclaim and an education-oriented prize.
The Monday casting event will feature quizzes and questionnaires to determine their readiness. The producers are looking for students aged 8 to 12 and their families. The search is open to any students living in the New York region.
If you’re interested in participating, [email protected] or call (310) 801-6090. Walk-ins are welcome at the Monday casting call.
