Merton Park Film Studios and Vortex Media are co-producing a new series of television shows that will focus on the self-improvement journeys of individuals struggling to achieve happiness by working to change their physical appearance, and improve the quality of their lives.

We are currently searching for individuals (men and women) who are willing to share their story about how a physical deficiency caused such personal dissatisfaction that it held them back from achieving a goal in life.

Together with professionals in local communities, Merton TV will provide many of the necessary resources to help complete your self-improvement journey and make dreams come true. Interviews will be conducted prior to beginning any treatment and then again once the transformation has been complete.

You may be a candidate to appear on a series if you are challenged with one of the following:

Dissatisfaction With Your Smile/Teeth

Pat Renwick
After years of neglecting her oral health, Pat is finally getting the smile she has always wanted. Thanks to Dr. Efram Kazman, Pat is now on a journey to getting her teeth fixed. Find out how Pat's life will be transformed and the happiness that follows.

Alberto Herrera

Alberto emigrated to Canada from Cuba several years ago. He began a college programme and worked in restaurants to support himself, but could never smile or laugh in public without covering his mouth in embarrassment. Watch and see how Alberto's life changed after completing his cosmetic dental treatment and learn why he now can't stop smiling!

Ages 16-55 encouraged to apply.

Are you self conscious about your teeth when you laugh or smile? Do you have crooked or missing teeth? Do you feel like you could take your career or love life up a notch (or two) if your teeth were perfect? Have you always dreamed of having a "movie star" smile? If so, we want to hear from you.

We're developing a cutting-edge Personal Image TV series to be presented to popular Canadian Media outlets like the Discovery Network and Slice TV. Candidates that are chosen to participate will have their cosmetic dental work paid for. (Up to $10,000 Canadian dollars)

No previous on-camera experience is necessary, and it's ok if you're scared of the dentist!

We're looking for employed women and men that truly want to transform their smile, and then talk about how their new personal image changed their life. (For example, were you motivated to lose weight or get in shape? Did you suddenly get that raise you deserve? Are you now more confident in social settings?)

This is an immediate opportunity for those that live or work in most Canadian cities.

All you have to do is call and arrange to be pre-screened. If we like you, we'll pay up to $10,000 toward your new smile.

Please note: Merton does not cover the cost of examinations or x-rays.

Battle To Gain Control Of Your Weight

Ages 18-65 are encouraged to apply.

Are you one of the thousands of people who battle daily with their weight? Do you make promises to yourself to get healthy and fit, only to get sidetracked after a few weeks of being disciplined? Have you lost and then re-gained those same pounds countless times? Do you believe that your weight has held you back from achieving your dreams?

If any of the above sound familiar then you may be interested in Merton TV's latest television series which focuses on self improvement. Over the course of the next few months we want to explore the lives of ordinary people and learn about their struggles to win the battle with their weight. Together with experts in the areas of fitness and nutrition, we will provide support to select individuals on their journey to success.

We are currently looking for individuals who believe their struggle to win the battle with their weight will be an inspiration to others. Whether you are looking to shed the pounds for health related reasons such as, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, are determined to finally get fit and feel great or want to WOW an old flame and perhaps reignite the fire, then we want to hear from you!

We are actively interviewing men and women from across Canada (who have reached the age of majority in their province or territory) who would like to lose a minimum of 30 pounds, are not presently following any weight loss or fitness program and would be comfortable having their story aired on a television series. Interviews will be conducted at the beginning of your journey, and again at the end when you will share the keys to your success. Previous television experience or exposure is not necessary.

Candidates should be supremely determined to lose weight and willing to demonstrate their commitment. (If you don't lose the weight, there's no story!)

Those who are successful in reaching their weight loss goal will be considered for participation and if chosen, will receive $5,000 for their time and the rights to their story.

Selected participants can choose the weight loss goal they are most comfortable with; however it must be at least 30 lbs, healthy, safe, moderated by a registered dietitian and may not involve surgical means to achieve successful results.

If you feel that your life has been on hold, that you have missed out on career opportunities or even a chance at love because of how you look, then we want to hear from you!

Call us today at 416-730-5684 Ext 2243 to arrange your pre-screening appointment, tell us which segment you are interested in and we'll help determine your eligibility.

Go ahead and take a shot, you have nothing to lose!
