RAVENSWOOD — VH1's new reality television series "Swab Stories" will be blocking off the 1800 block of West Foster Avenue on Wednesday for filming.
You might want to keep your mouth shut if approached with a Q-tip and asked to appear on camera.
In a recent interview, Rosenthal stated that television studios had expressed "a lot of interest in the fascinating stories of the people affected by [the] mobile DNA truck ... and their dramatic, real-life situations."
While not necessarily veering into Maury Povich territory, "Swab Stories" promises to show "how lost family members reconnect thanks to DNA testing," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In a statement posted on his website, Rosenthal said "Swab Stories" would feature "real stories about real people who find lost siblings, people who discover that their parents are not really their parents" and more.
Powderhouse Productions, which is co-producing the series with Rosenthal for VH1, did not immediately respond to a request for additional details regarding the Chicago filming.
A "no parking" zone will be in effect in the 1800 block of West Foster Avenue from 9:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Filming will take place on the north side of the street, according to the office of Ald. Pat O'Connor (40th).
"Swab Stories" is set to premiere in September.
