Got a restaurant concept? NBC Casting Call!

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

Just got this from a casting agent for NBC TV:

Do you have an idea for America’s next great restaurant? Are you sitting on a billion dollar concept? If you think your restaurant idea has what it takes to go national and bring in millions of hungry Americans, read on…

From NBC and Magical Elves, the Emmy Award-nominated producers of “Project Runway” and “Top Chef,” comes a big-event competition that will award one contestant the opportunity to see their idea turned into reality with a new restaurant chain opened in three cities across America! The contestants’ fate will be decided by a panel of some of the most important names in both the dining and business worlds that will invest their own money in the final restaurant chain and have a huge stake in the ongoing success of the game’s winner.

There are TWO options for you to apply:

1.    Attend an OPEN CALL, at one of the cities below

2.    Follow the directions on our website for SUBMIT BY MAIL instructions.

(Hint: pitching in person is fun.)

 

Please go to http://www.nbc.com/casting/ for all information, to download an application and pre-register for an open casting call at one of the eight stops on the nationwide casting bus tour.  Along with a filled out and signed application and a photo-ID, we want you to bring anything you feel would help pitch your restaurant concept. Elements could be visual, edible, audible (jingle anyone?) or even wearable. . . Keep in mind you will have a limited time to pitch your idea, so make it count. 

 

You can also can follow the bus tour on Twitter @magicalelves, with photos and video available on nbc.com/americas-next-great-restaurant.

Good luck and have fun with it,

The Magical Elves Casting Team
