TBS to produce show about craziest Packer backer
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Get ready, Cheeseheads. The TBS cable network will have a new reality show next season featuring the craziest Green Bay Packer fans.

A starting date has not been announced. TBS says "Cheeseheads" is the working title of the program. Potential advertisers are being told, quote, "These citizens don't just bleed green-and-gold - they eat victory for breakfast. This show will take viewers into the hilarious sub-culture through the eyes of a group of proud Wisconsinites as they navigate life in the only way they know how - loud, proud, and with lots of beer. For these folks, there is no off-season."

The show is produced by Jason Carbone, who co-produces "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" for ABC. A casting call was made last December in Green Bay for what the producer called "passionate Wisconsinites with big personalities."
