Not just any families.

The company behind "Pawn Stars," "Tiny House Nation" and "Lachey's Bar" is looking for families who are moving back into the childhood homes they grew up in.

Casting producer Desiree Kmiecki for Loud Television/Leftfield Pictures says every episode of the series "will follow outgoing families moving back into their childhood homes and then renovating them to their liking. At the same time, we’ll follow their parents as they move out of their old home and hunt for a new perfect home to start the next chapter of their lives in, whether that's downsizing, moving into a 55 and over community, or whatever that looks like for them.

"We are looking for families that have stories similar to this and would be interested in having their renovation done on our show," she says.

The series is for "a major cable network," she says. The companies have produced shows for A&E, History, Discovery and FYI.

The specifications:

--Families must have at least one child between the ages of 10 and 16 living with them full-time.  You can have older and younger children as well, she says.

--Interested families should email  Desiree.Kmiecki@LoudTelevision.com. You must include your name, contact information, location, parents' names and contact information, family photos, photos of the home you'll be moving into, and a brief description of what needs to be changed in the home to make it perfect for your family.

"We're hopeful to be able to put together an episode in Cincinnati as it's such a beautiful area, and we've loved shooting there in the past," she says.
