A television casting company has been aggressively seeking Southern California
applicants for a proposed series called MILITARY WIVES OF SAN DIEGO. Doron Ofir
Casting has sent notices out to a variety of military-related communities and
organizations seeking local wives of enlisted men and officers for casting
Various Navy and Marine Corps Ombudsman, family readiness and key volunteer
groups and affiliated organizations have already been approached by Doron Ofir
Casting to help find potential cast members and help generate interest in the
The proposed series and the application-interview-casting process are being done
without the support of the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense. Neither DON nor DOD have even been officially approached for assistance with this production.
In widely distributed promotional material, the casting company describes the
potential series as an “unprecedented opportunity” to document Navy spouses and
the “true story behind love and life in the military.” Doron Ofir Casting has
also casted similarly themed reality series such as JERSEY SHORE, MILLIONAIRE
MATCHMAKER, and THE A-LIST. Based on the description of the proposed MILITARY WIVES OF SAN DIEGO program and the tone of the other series this company has casted, the show will not be provided any local official Navy support.
Navy personnel should avoid the appearance of support to the series as members
of the Department of the Navy. Anyone interviewing or auditioning for the series
should not do so in uniform. Navy spouses who choose to interview or audition or
are later cast in the series do so as private citizens and will not receive Navy
public affairs support or guidance.
Queries about the series should be referred to Brian O’Rourke, Public Affairs
Office, Navy Region Southwest, (619) 532-4717.
