MTV's 'True Life' Searching for Jewish Mama's Boy

MTV's popular reality series "True Life" is currently on the hunt for a Jewish man that consistently chooses his mother over his girlfriend.

The show is seeking a 'Jewish Mama's Boy' between the ages of 16 to 28 for an upcoming episode called "True Life: I'm Dating a Mama's Boy."

“We really hope we can find a Jewish mama’s boy to feature, and we’ve already been searching far and wide,” David Abelson, "True Life's" producer, told JTA.

“So far we have contacted Hillel houses across the country, JCCs and Jewish summer camps … but the search continues.”

"True Life" is casting for other episodes as well. They are in search of Internet addicts, people preparing for the end of the world, and people that don't trust their parents.

If you are interested in being considered for any of these shows, contact casting@triplethreattv.com with personal contact information and a recent photo.

Previous "True Life" episodes include "I'm Addicted to Marijuana", "I'm Breaking Up With My Best Friend", and "I Have Orthorexia".
