Anderson casket maker eyes reality TV show

ANDERSON – Move over, "Teen Mom." Anderson might be the setting for a new reality show.

The founder of a local casket-making company says he's been asked to participate in a reality show featuring specialized coffins and their creators.

Chris Boots of C.J. Boots Casket Co. tells The Herald Bulletin that he's spoken with producers in a conference call.

An email to Boots from the casting company says the show will feature a casket maker whose goal is to create a coffin "so broadly variant that the only limitation is the customer's imagination."

Other casket makers also have been contacted by producers.

If history counts, Anderson might have an edge. The city has appeared in Spike TV's "Repo Games," MTV's "Teen Mom," HBO's documentary "Dirty Driving" and ABC's "Wife Swap."
