Doug's Design: Adding Venetian plaster to a room's walls can heighten its dramatic flourish.

(For US residents)

TLC, the television network that brought you "Trading Spaces" and "While You Were Out", is looking to cast 15 fresh new episodes of their home design TV show "Moving Up" - hosted by Trading Spaces star designer Doug Wilson. 

The program is looking for people who are moving sometime between January 23 and March 30, 2006. They need people with outgoing personalities or unique, extreme taste in design and people who would love to be on TLC!

The show producers believe diversity is important to the show, as such they are specifically looking for people from the Muslim community - The show director says, "we would love to have several Muslim families on our show!"

The show requires candidates who demonstrate a strong passion for design and have plans to change the decor of their new home right away. TLC will step in to help make those projects happen faster and less expensively.


  • A camera crew will follow a family in four basic stages:
  • Film each family before they pack and move out of their old house. 
  • Film each family in the process of moving from their old to new home. 
  • Film the family as they renovate their new home. 
  • After 3 months, the family is filmed again as they return to their former home to see what they think of how the new people have redecorated it. 

The process takes about 3 months on average, and will include filming over that time when significant events take place.

Plus, you'll get to have one of the most important moves your family makes documented on TLC!

Please note: Interested candidates must still occupy their current home. First-time buyers moving into a home that is already vacant are unfortunately not eligible since we meet with a pair of buyers and sellers. 

If you are interested in participating in this show please contact:
