The Marriage Ref Casting in the Triad

NBC TV’s "The Marriage Ref" Comes to North Carolina for Casting Calls;
and Is Hiring Local Temporary Staff

Winston-Salem and Greensboro, NC, October 8, 2010 – EverWondr Network,
Greensboro, NC, the company that developed CityOfTheArts.com and
ExploreGreensboro.com, among many other websites, announced they will bring
NBC TV’s "The Marriage Ref" to the Triad to hold open casting calls for upcoming
episodes of this comedy panel show.

On the show, celebrities help squabbling couples make peace; and participants in
every show have a chance to win $25,000. Created by Jerry Seinfeld, the show offers
relationship advice...with a comic twist.

How did the show decide to come to the Triad? “During the past 11 months, with seed
money from The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, we built one of the
country’s most powerful events marketing websites,” said Amy Consigio of EverWondr
Network. “The producers at ‘The Marriage Ref,’ discovered it online and decided it could
be useful to help their show find feuding couples.”

About the Casting Calls

"The Marriage Ref" casting team is searching the country for outgoing and opinionated
married couples that have a long-standing argument or issue that must be resolved. No
problem is too small or too strange!

During the casting calls, potential couples will tell producers why they absolutely
NEED a MARRIAGE REF to weigh in and proclaim, for once and for all, who is
RIGHT and who is WRONG. In every episode, the featured spouse who wins their
arguments as judged by a panel of favorite celebrities will compete for $25,000 and
the distinction of being judged the “most right” of the night.
