Agency says the “acting and modeling business for babies” will be the subject of a reality show

An agency that represents baby and child actors says it will be the subject of an upcoming network reality series.

That show will be “a comical, yet educational look inside the acting and modeling business for babies, from when they first visit the child wonderland at Scooter’s Fab Flashcast, on to meeting various talent agencies and right through to auditioning for and booking jobs,” according to a press release from the agency, which identifies itself as “the number one service for children and babies in the entertainment industry” and has placed baby and kid models under age five in ads for Gap Kids, Old Navy, Target, Disney, Fisher-Price, and other companies.

It says it has “signed a major deal with a production company to produce a new reality TV show coming soon to a major network.” Neither the production company nor the network are mentioned.
