Are you an Alabama woman who drives a truck? Rides horses? Watches auto racing? And likes to shoot guns?

Then have we got a reality show for you. 

A Huntsville company, Helen Evans LLC, is looking for cast members for a new series, "Redneck Housewives of Alabama." If you fit the bill and want to be considered for the show, you can submit a YouTube video, photo and resume via the official website

In-person auditions are scheduled for Aug. 5 at Elks Lodge No. 1648, 725 Franklin St. Southeast in Huntsville. 

Five women, ages 21 and older, are expected to star in "Redneck Housewives of Alabama," according to a representative for the show, and the ideal candidates will be outgoing, outdoorsy people who are adventurous and colorful.

"Normal Southern women" with a fondness for big trucks, guns, speedway racing, horseback riding and hiking will have a leg up on the competition, the staffer said. Husbands and children are likely to take part in the filming, as well. 

The Huntsville company, which also is producing the series, doesn't have a network deal yet, but hopes to secure one after the series is "up and going," the staffer said. 

Cast members will be paid, according to the "Redneck Housewives of Alabama" website. The rate hasn't been revealed, but will vary depending on the role.

Details on "Redneck Housewives" are scarce right now, but like the "Real Housewives" franchise on Bravo, this series is likely to thrive on drama.

Groups of friends are encouraged to audition, the website says, especially if they're "battling with serious and realistic issues such as suicide, divorce, broken relationships, bankruptcy, infidelity, family feuding, alcoholism, deadbeat dads and foreclosures."
