CASTING IMMEDIATELY-This groundbreaking new series is looking for women & men (25-45yrs old) that acknowledge they have a spending/shopping addiction! This new series will cast a light on a serious and growing problem in America-
SHOPPING & SPENDING ADDICTION-
In a country with more than $600 billion dollars in credit card debt, as many as 27 million Americans suffer from a compulsive shopping problem! A spending problem can be as destructive as the worst gambling addiction, AND can be even harder to break. For those that suffer with this issue, it is not only destructive to EVERY aspect of their lives but also wreaks havoc and turmoil on their friends and family.
