What is Sparkling Joy?
The upcoming “Joy with Marie Kondo” will follow Kondo and her team as they embark on an American small town, bringing joy to new ways.
The series marks Kondo’s second Netflix show after last year’s hugely successful film “Organizing with Marie Kondo”, for which she received an Emmy nomination.
How can you get involved?
Although no release date has been confirmed, there is good news as you might be able to name your city as the forerunner of a new series.
Currently, casting calls are open to find Kondo the perfect small town (in America) where Kondo can use her life-changing charm.
“I have fun news to share… I’m working on a new show with @netflix and @alfredstreetindustries! My goal and that of my team is ambitious: to clean up a small town that deserves joy and change. You can submit your city for consideration by visiting my profile link. I can’t wait to hear what you imagine for your community! #TidyMyTown #SparkingJoy, ”Kondo announced on his Instagram page with a video clip.
So if you want to show up with your city, all you have to do is jump to tidymytown.com and fill out the application form.
It is a rather extensive form, including questions about its city goals, its history, what makes it a unique community, and what public spaces could actually be used for cleaning up.
Applicants must also submit a five to 10-minute video showing why their city deserves redevelopment.
And this video must include interviews with at least one member of the community who has “leadership.”
But potential contestants need to keep in mind that this could give them a chance to clean up and take responsibility for their city – think of all the local celebrities!
