Television program "Showbiz Moms," slated for a April 2004 release is a documentary series that follows half-dozen adults as they drag their children around to auditions. This series might be enough to make writers think twice about developing television shows that feature children. The series deals with parents subjecting their kids to the rigors of show business. The parents in "Showbiz Moms" dismiss any negative perceptions harbored by the outside world. Executive producer Fenton Biley makes it clear, "Showbiz Moms" is not a staged reality show.
