Hidden treasures and personal dreams are the stuff television is made of and the ABC network is focusing on both through a new primetime series currently titled "Dream Project."
Berkshire region families are among those included in a nation-wide network-issued invitation to submit applications for consideration as a program participant. "Dream Project" representatives are planning to visit the Berkshire region on April 26 to meet with specific folks who have completed a program application.
The planned program was created and is being produced by Madison Road Entertainment.
"Do you know someone who is looking to fulfill a personal dream but does not have the financial means to attain it? Do they have a closet, attic, or basement full of "hidden treasures," items that they are willing to place for sale on eBay? If so, then Madison Road Entertainment, eBay, and the American viewers may literally be able to make these dreams come true," according to promotional materials made available on an ABC web site.
Items that may be suitable for eBay sale include baseball cards, coin collections, comic books, vintage jewelry or clothing, signed sports memorabilia, antique doll houses, and many other items.
The program is focusing on dreams that may be considered "quirky," exciting," or "outrageous," and show officials listed dreams such as flying across the country in a hot air balloon, community projects, adventure pursuits such as driving a race car or swimming the English Channel, and "save the company" type projects as suitable for program consideration.
"Dreams" that involve personal or home "makeovers," or any medical surgeries will not be considered.
"The sky is the limit when it comes to the dreams that we will consider, so the more creative and imaginative the dream, the better," according to "Dream Project" promotional information.
Further information and application forms are available at a www.nationalfamilysearch.com Internet web site.
Interested persons should submit an application as quickly as possible.
