Guest Celebrity Mentor.
Deon Richmond (The Cosby Show) is the first of many former child stars that will be on hand to give real-world context to the parents and to mentor the children. Richmond, started on The Cosby Show at age 6, and though it was a family friendly show, 25 plus years later, the show’s patriarch is under media fire for allegations of misconduct off-screen during the height of the show’s success. Whether the allegations are true or not, the fact underscores that parents must be mindful of the “adult settings” that their children will be placed in as child-stars. The series will visit several other small towns nationwide (with Utah being the first stop), to scout additional talent. Ultimately, one family will remain to compete for their chance at stardom.
