A Vampire, a Naturist, a Voodoo Priestess, a Wiccan, and a Modern Primitive Set Up House on SCI FI

Production Wraps on SCI FI's Twisted New Reality Series 'Mad Mad House'

NEW YORK, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Welcome to the Voodoo days and vampire nights of SCI FI's newest reality series, Mad Mad House. This 10-episode weekly series chronicles the unhinging of 10 everyday people who move into a house run by a Vampire, a Wiccan, a Naturist, a Voodoo Priestess, and a Modern Primitive to compete for a $100,000 prize. Part reality, part variety, and part game, the one-hour series will debut as part of the Channel's new SCI FI Thursday block of originals on Thursday, March 4 at 9pm ET/PT.

In this Survivor-meets-the Real World-meets-The Osbournes series, five genuine practitioners of "alternative lifestyles," referred to collectively as the ALTS, rule the roost. Their ten more "conventional" GUESTS strap in for the ride of their lives as they undergo a number of tolerance-testing activities.

The Guests are judged by the Alts to determine their openness to and tolerance of alternative lifestyles. From their participation in House activities, to their willingness to get to know the Alts, the Guests are subject to constant evaluation. The Alts determine which of their Guests will be banished in the weekly elimination ceremony ... and which one will ultimately walk away with the six-figure prize.

Created by Arthur Smith and Kent Weed, Mad Mad House is produced by their A. Smith & Co. Productions. Smith and Weed executive produced Fox's hit summer series Paradise Hotel and the recently announced Forever Eden.

Actually I can't wait. I think it will be hilarious.

Is Fiona Horne in on this?

Wish I had SciFi. I think it's gonna be a hoot. I'd LOVE to be one of the 10 competing... course then I'd have to act "normal" and I don't think I have ever known how to do that! LOL

I'd be one of the ALTS.... Me and my velvet clothing, black cloak, meditation and tarot readings :D

**chuckles** I've only seen one advertisement for this show on the Sci-Fi Channel. It's only 10 episodes long.... a mid-season replacement kind of show. If it doesn't draw enough people, who knows? They could even kill it after three or four shows. **shakes head with an amused grin** I still can't believe the crap that is put on TV that they really think people are interested in watching. **shrugs** But like someone else said, I think it'd be a hoot to watch at least one episode.

Is Fiona Horne in on this?

She's the Wiccan. Why? I'm not familiar with her. Is she a fluffy-bunny type?

January 9th, 2004, 08:57 PM
I have read her book, "Witch". While there is definitely a new "spin" to the Wicca in the book, and the ideas do seem a bit updated, Fiona seems to be a bit full of herself and has some pretty fruity pictures of herself in there.

I'm just glad they didn't get Kevin Carlyon. :rolleyes:

Fiona Horne is most definitely the Wiccan in this show. Check out this article where she talks about the experience:

Fiona Horne? No kidding.

That might actually make it worth watching.

January 18th, 2004, 12:35 AM

January 18th, 2004, 12:43 AM

My opinion is that no one an judge it until it airs!

As for Fiona Horne being a fake or whatever, she isn't. She's very real, I've got two of her books, she's one of my favorite authors, and quite frankly, she's awsome and down to earth.

Blessed Be....

I have to agree with Jeremy. It seems ridiculous though. :rolleyes:

I was thinking the same. Maybe some of those protests people were making about using that street magician guy as the 'witchy' person made an impact.

I really think the show's going to be great. It's going to be hilarious, and I can't wait to see if it's as funny as I think it's going to be.

And besides, that vampire guy Don is cute. Heeeeere vampire vampire... :dinnertim

::chases the vampire:: Come back! Wait, why are you running?! Come baaack!

I think the show looks stupid. Just another dumb reality show if you ask me.
