'Hockey Moms': Reality TV producers casting show about MN youth hockey

A group of reality TV producers is scouting Minnesota for the only thing tougher than hockey – hockey moms.

McCalley-Lee Entertainment is offering Minnesotans the chance to star in a reality show fittingly titled "Hockey Moms," which will provide a look at the state's "very competitive" youth hockey scene.

The company is holding an open casting call and hopes to attract personalities with "the reality TV 'it' factor " – the entry form asks contestants to describe their unique talents, what makes them "special," and any "crazy personal characteristics" they might have.

In addition, they must explain why they want to be a reality TV star.

This is actually McCalley-Lee's second time trying to get the show into the broadcasting rink.

According to the Star Tribune, the producers tried to cast the program last year but were forced to put it on ice when they failed to find a network for it.

Now, the paper says, two Minnesota stations – KSTC-45 in the Twin Cities (owned by Hubbard Broadcasting) and ABC 6 in Rochester – have agreed to carry it, and the producers are encouraging anyone who tried out last year to give it another shot.

"Hockey Moms" will begin airing on December 26, the official website says.

Two notable episodes to look forward to: the Feb. 20, 2016 show will directly follow the AA Championship Girls High School Hockey Game, and the season finale will air right after the AA Championship Boys High School Hockey Game on March 5, according to McCalley-Lee.

The online casting call ends Sept. 9.
