?Unique women’ sought for new Towers’ series

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF CHICAGO are being sought for a Towers Productions reality series. According to Towers’ casting director Becky Cattie, the hope is to find women who could give this formula “a new twist,” showcasing a “really unique group of ladies to represent the Midwest.

“Towers is seeking “a dynamic group of ladies leading extraordinary lives ? modern housewives who juggle busy lives and look great doing it! No wallflowers please.”

No indication as to whether or not these “Housewives” will be added to Bravo’s slate of “Real Housewives” from various parts of the country. Towers has deals with The Discovery Channel and its myriad spinoff outlets.

FOUNDATION DIRECTOR BEN CHAPPELL’S music video shot in San Francisco for Cass McCombs, starring actress/singer Karen Black, has received 23,000 hits so far on YouTube, where it runs as part of its MusicTuesday series. Check it out at
