Hold on to your Cheeseheads, cheeseheads.

A reality show about Green Bay Packers fans, with the working title "Cheeseheads,'' is among the shows in development for TBS, but it hasn't officially been picked up yet. The show "is in consideration to become a series,'' according to a spokeswoman for the cable channel.

TBS announced earlier this week a long list of new scripted and unscripted programs it has in development at its annual upfront presentation in New York. Here is its description of "Cheeseheads'':

"Green Bay, Wis., is home to the World Famous Green Bay Packers and their fans: The Cheeseheads. These citizens don't just bleed green and gold; they eat victory for breakfast. For them, being a Cheesehead is more than just being a fan. It's a way of life. This show will take viewers into the hilarious subculture through the eyes of a group of proud Wisconsinites as they navigate life in the only way they know how - loud, proud and with lots of beer. For these folks, there is no off-season.''

The executive producer is listed as Jason Carbone, whose previous reality show work includes "Road Rules'' and "Real World'' on MTV and ABC's "The Bachelor'' and "The Bachelorette.''

A casting call in December at The Stadium View Bar & Grille sought "passionate Wisconsinites with big personalities.'' Interested people were encouraged to bring family and friends along to the audition and dress in their Packers gear.
