Producers for Jerry Seinfeld's Marriage Ref come to the Tampa Bay area this weekend



Nbc-the-marriage-ref-jerry-seinfeld If you haven't already tried out for Who Wants to be a Millionaire, or Biggest Loser or America's Next Top Model or American Idol -- all top reality TV shows who have auditioned folks in or near the Tampa Bay area in recent weeks -- then you've got one more shot at unscripted television glory.

Producers for Jerry Seinfeld's new show The Marriage Ref are expected to fly into the Tampa Bay area this weekend, scheduling interviews with couples who have a longstanding disagreement over something ("no problem is too small," the casting notice insists).

Instead of arranging a cattle call audition somewhere public, however, the producers are asking prospective couples to call their hotline at 1-877-304-4040 or email [email protected] to schedule an interview this weekend. Seinfeld is the creator and executive producer; in other words, he isn't going to be there.

Jerry_seinfeld_marriage_ref.0.0.0x0.376x490 The Marriage Ref is a show dreamed up by Seinfeld which allows celebrities, comics and sports stars to act as referees for typical and not-so-typical marital spats.

So imagine turning to Chris Rock for advice on how to keep your wife from complaining about your boys nights out, or asking Kathy Griffin for tips on how to spice up your love life (maybe you want to ask Pamela Anderson, instead)

If you do call and get an audition, feel free to post here on how it went.

This may be some couple's last chance to earn the kind of fame which has made household names of Jon and Kate Gosselin -- though that may not be the best motivation.
