“Supernanny” comes to Phoenix

The casting team of ABC’s British nanny-helmed parenting series “Supernanny” is looking for Arizona families in need of child-rearing help.

Casting producers will see families Saturday at The Phoenix Zoo and Wet ‘n’ Wild Water park. Casting producer Johnny Beechler says the show has had good luck finding families at such places, where they’re already on site and spending the day together.

During the open calls, families will get to meet briefly with the casting team. Those who e-mail Beechler before Saturday will get a front-of-the-line pass. E-mails should explain why your family needs help and contain a recent family photo. Send them to

Families who appear on “Supernanny” receive a visit from Jo Frost, author of the best-selling books “Ask Supernanny” and “Supernanny: How to Get the Best From Your Kids.” Frost helps parents pinpoint the source of children’s behavior problems and teaches them to adjust their attitudes and techniques to get different results.

The show is in its fifth season.

There is no charge to audition for the show, and families need not wear or prepare anything special. Casting calls will be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Phoenix Zoo, 455 N. Galvin Parkway, Phoenix, and Wet ‘n’ Wild, 4243 W. Pinnacle Peak Road, Glendale.

Questions may be directed to Beechler at (614) 668-5700 or
