Debt & a TV Show

OK, I'm new to this board and just wanted to share my situation along with a project I'm working on.

First of all. I have debt. All kinds of debt. Student loans, credit cards, medical, etc. It's been rough. I'm married. We're working through it. An unsuccessful job move didn't work out, but we're finally back on track. It's tough, depressing, and something that requires dedication. I've spent more than I could ever imagine. Anyone ever try out Dave Ramsey?

In getting back on track, I came up with an idea for a reality TV show where contestants with significant debt or financial stress compete against each other for the ultimate prize, financial freedom. The funny thing is that an old friend works in TV and he's willing to give it a shot. Maybe it's help finding your dream job or paying off your student loans. Maybe it's clearing away those medical bills or credit cards. We actually might be able to give someone a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a chance to wipe the financial slate clean. 

If you're out there and interested in talking more, send me a PM. We're actually accepting casting videos via Vimeo. 

Regardless of what happens with the show, I'm looking forward to being a part of this group and helping others through the struggle of getting their finances back on track because I'm tired of losing sleep over it, worrying about it, crying about it, and being ashamed of my debt.
