Calling all Couch Potatoes…
VH1 and Entertainment Weekly are on the hunt for some fresh new pop-culture obsessed meat. The pop dynamic duo are traveling around the country to find 16 three-person teams who think they've got the stuff to compete in the most intense pop culture trivia tournament known to man, The World Series of Pop Culture.
The tournament, which will be taped to air on VH1 in summer 2007, will happen in mid-March in New York City.
Casting Calls, followed by Regional Qualifying Games, will be held by appointment only in the following cities on the following dates:
• New York: January 19 – 21
• Los Angeles: January 26 – 28
• Chicago: February 2 – 4
• Austin: February 9 – 11
• Orlando: February 16 – 18
In each city, Casting Calls will be held on Friday and Saturday. Select teams will be called back by Producers to play in a Regional Qualifying Game on Sunday. Callbacks to play in Sunday's Regional Qualifier Game will come on Saturday night. Your team MUST be available for the entire weekend in your selected city to be considered.
The team that wins the Regional Qualifier Game in each city AUTOMATICALLY advances to The World Series of Pop Culture tournament being held in NYC in March, 2007. The remaining teams who were chosen to participate in the Regional Qualifier Games held in each city will be put into a pool from which the Producers may select up to an additional ten (10) teams to participate in the Tournament at the sole discretion of the Producers.
To sign-up to attend a Casting Call in a city near you, fill out the form (found on VH1). A member of The World Series of Pop Culture Casting Team will contact you with further details.
*Please note: Each team MUST consist of 3 team members, one of which is designated the team captain. You must also choose a name for your team.
