MTV Casting Families that own or run restaurants

MTV Tryouts

Is your family in the restaurant business? Do you and your siblings help your family in the restaurant? Does your entire family participate from the cooking, to the cleaning, to the books and everything in between? If this sounds like you…. MTV may be interested in casting you and your family for a show!

MTV is looking for families across the country who own and operate their own local restaurants. The bigger the family, the better. We’re especially interested in families who live in small towns. We’d like restaurants where the entire family is involved in the business from managing and hosting to cooking and serving.

If your family is close-knit, fun, outgoing and full of personality, please send an email to with your name, location, and names and pictures of your entire family. Please give us some background about the restaurant, including how long the family has owned it, who does what at the restaurant, and how much time is spent there on average a week.
