ABC is casting for a new romantic reality show that's different from all the others, and you could be the star![PHOTOS: See photos from Thursday night's casting call]

Remember the movie The Holiday? Strangers Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet connect on a house-exchange website, vacation at each others' homes in LA and Surrey, and find love along the way? ABC is doing a reality-show spin-off of the romantic comedy -- and it's casting here in Houston.

Producers are looking for the woman who's got it all, except the right guy to share her life. There might be plenty of men in your life, but for whatever reason none of these guys is your Mr. Right. If you believe love it out there for you, this is the time to throw caution to the wind.

Producers describe it like this: "This is your chance to jump into a different life in a different part of the country. A romantic holiday completely planned and organized just for you. We provide the new city, the new digs, the new guys... Even the plane ticket."

This is not a competition show like others you've seen. There are no illuminations, catches or surprises -- just a genuine search for love.

If you believe this could be the show for you and you're between the ages of 25 and 40, producers want to talk to you. Attend an open casting call at Sammy's at 2016 Main on Saturday, April 4 between 8pm and midnight.

If you can't make it out to the casting call, you can email your pictures, full name, profession, and age to
