Gold posted a casting notice for what is being referred to as ‘The Tracey Gold Project‘ on Facebook. There, she’s seeking men and women over the age of 18 who are struggling with anorexia, bulimia, compulsive eating or another eating disorder, for what they dub a documentary.

The prospective series would be produced by GRB Entertainment, the makers of A&E’s gripping addiction show, ‘Intervention.’

Participants will receive 90 days of treatment at a leading eating disorder facility. The solicitation states, in part: “Working with established eating disorder clinics in Southern California, Tracey will use cutting edge motivational exercises and her own personal experiences to motivate change in the dangerous behaviors of people on the brink.”

“Along with some of the country’s leading eating disorder professionals,” the casting call continues, “Tracey will act as a mentor, guide and coach and enter into the lives of damaged families to discover and root out the causes of life-threatening disorders, and she pushes people to face their problems head-on and accept responsibility to change.”
