Ho Ho Ho! Got some holiday hilarity? NBC Wants It from YOU!

Gina Gonzalez, an Associate Producer with JUMA Entertainment in Los Angeles, got in touch with TVR Chair Nancy Cornwell today to encourage Parkies -- that's you! -- to submit "the funniest and most entertaining holiday moments caught on tape" for NBC's Family Holiday Special.

Here's what she said:

"I am writing to you in hopes that you may have some TV students that have caught some great holiday moments on tape and would be interested in sharing them for our fun new special! From what I see of your website, and from what I've heard, Ithaca College, has a very impressive TV Production program and we would love to have some of your students partake in our special [Editor's Note: OK, so maybe Gina is a better associate producer than she is a writer....]...We're reaching out to a few different TV/Film schools across the country, with hopes of getting some GREAT amateur videos.

Here's the info:

The holiday season is just around the corner, and this year, NBC is counting down the most hilarious and entertaining holiday moments from families across the country. We're looking for everything from classic Christmas season chaos to memorable New Year's moments to Chanukah mishaps such as, accidents involving a Christmas tree, wild or funny behavior moments with the local "Mall Santa," sledding mishaps, holiday cooking/dinner table disasters, and any other event the camera caught that might make America smile, laugh, cry, or cringe! This new special will be one-hour filled with family fun, and will air this December. We'll choose from thousands of home video submissions then rank the best America has to offer! So if you think your memorable holiday moment will "light up" our countdown, please send us your home videos NOW in order to be considered for this festive holiday special!
