Your personal troubles at home just may be featured on cable television. MTV is looking for young people who have had the play the role of parent while their mother or father are going through a hard time. It's tentatively called "My Child Does It All," but the casting director says it could just as easily be called "16 and Pressured," a spin on MTV's successful series "16 and Pregnant."
Most of those featured will be between 15-22 years old, but it sounds like producers are flexible.
