ABC Casting For Weight Loss Show This Sunday

ABC’s set to start casting for the second season of their weight loss show Obese, which features people who have at least 200 pounds to lose as they work with a trainer to get healthy.

Before we get to the casting information, you might be wondering if you missed the first season of this series. Season 1 of Obese won’t air until 2011. Given the amount of weight the participants have to lose, it seems understandable that the show would need longer for production than other weight loss reality shows that might feature people with fifty pounds or less to shed.

Below is the information on the series and the open auditions, which take place this Sunday.
