NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A national TV network could be starting a show about a local organization. 

Plans are in the works for the CUE Center for Missing Persons, which is in Wilmington, to get a reality show.  

Pie Town Productions makes reality shows like Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? and House Hunters on HGTV.

Now, the production company has a pilot with the CUE Center for Missing Persons, and the idea is being shopped around to different networks.

CUE Center founder Monica Caison says that show would be about what volunteers go through as searches and would give viewers an in-depth look at what families of missing people go through.

Caison says that a show about the CUE Center has been in the works for a few years.

She flew to Los Angeles last year to meet with people who work at several major TV networks about the idea. According to Caison, the CUE Center came close to signing a deal.

Caison says the production company is tweaking the pilot, and if it is picked up, the money will go towards the CUE Center.
