The Artiaga family has just moved to Hollywood in a make-or-break attempt to become famous in 12 weeks. It's an experiment in celebrity ... driven by TMZ.
You may recall ... a while back TMZ solicited families who desperately wanted Kardashian-like fame. We got 10,000 videos from families all over the world, and we honed in on one ... the Artiagas from Beaumont, CA ... a sleepy town near Palm Springs.
The Artiagas have just moved to L.A. with a mission -- using every device possible -- especially social media -- to get noticed. TMZ will give them tips on where to go, what to do ... but they have to make their own luck.
The Artiagas will be on a new show -- "Famous in 12" - Tuesdays at 8 PM on the CW. The show premieres this Tuesday and will run for 12 weeks.
For us this is an interesting experiment. We've seen lots of people become famous with little or no talent. Fact is ... this family -- especially the 3 daughters -- are game for anything. We'll be posting stories about them and putting them on TMZ TV and TMZ Live during the summer.
Let us know if you like them ... or if you hate them.
