Lights, cameras, energy! Family Feud producers have been making the rounds nationwide on the hunt for great families for our upcoming season. Next up: LA!
Our most recent auditions took us from San Francisco to Milwaukee, and what can we say? We were impressed. Following two very successful events, our co-executive producer and head of casting Sara Dansby gives us the scoop on auditions so far, and a look at what’s next.

Scenic San Fran represented in a major way and we met some amazing families on this trip – 596 to be exact – who came ready to show their stuff. In addition to their 49ers and Warriors gear, Feud devotees also sported total try-out enthusiasm. “We had an incredible turnout in San Francisco,” says Sara Dansby, co-executive producer and head of casting, “families were really fun, energetic, and excited about the show.”

To be in Brew City on St. Patrick’s Day was nearly as fun as meeting the memorable families who shamrocked their way through try-outs. “To be back in Milwaukee after two years, and on St. Patrick’s Day, was pretty cool,” Dansby noted, “it’s the families that make our show special, and Milwaukee didn’t disappoint.”
