Casting Call and a Cable Alternative

Discovery Health is looking for people to star in the 2009 National Body Challenge. Hopefuls should fall into one of the following categories:
* Mother/Daughter
* Father/Son
* Coworkers
* Or, people who need to lose over 100 pounds

Each person or team will be provided with a professional weight loss program, gym membership and personalized one-on-one instruction with physicians, nutritionists and fitness experts -- and then they'll be able to share their inspiring story with the world. To apply, visit Discovery Health's official site.

This year, the week-long TV special followed overweight twins on their quest to lose the extra poundage. And thanks to the good folks at 360i and Discovery Health, you can check out this heartbreaking clip from this season:

Since the writers strike hasn't been resolved yet, now is a great time to check out some of cable's offerings. With that in mind, DIY Network is inveiling its new Nailed at 9 primetime line-up featuring home improvement programming. One of the shows, Inside Job, goes behind-the-scenes of a home makeover series with Trading Spaces' Carter Oosterhouse. Click over to DIY's official site for more.
