I received the following notice via Entertainment Weekly:
VH1 and Entertainment Weekly are scouring the country to find 16 three-person teams who think they've got what it takes to compete in the most intense pop culture trivia tournament to date, The World Series of Pop Culture.
The tournament, which will be taped to air on VH1 in late summer 2006, will happen over the weekend of April 28th through the 30th in New York City.
Whether teams consist of friends who gather to watch "Lost" every Wednesday, co-workers who spend lunch hours discussing their favorite films, or siblings who grew up addicted to sitcoms, the three members must have extensive knowledge of the films, TV shows, music, and pop culture happenings of the '70s, '80s, and '90s through today.
Do you think you and your cohorts have the pop culture smarts to beat out the competition? Then come meet us in person and prove it!
Casting Calls followed by Regional Qualifying Games will be held by appointment only in the following cities on the following dates:
• Los Angeles: March 4-5
• Chicago: March 11-12
• Dallas: March 18-19
• Atlanta: March 25-26
• New York: April 1-2
Go to EW.com (under "SPECIAL COVERAGE") or VH1.com (under "SHOWS" and then "CASTING CALLS") to apply!
Contestants must be U.S. Residents and at least 18 years of age at the time of the audition. Go to EW.com or VH1.com for further eligibility requirements.
Don't ask me to join your team. I could do nicely in the TV category, and probably hold my own when it comes to the movies, but music and general pop culture..... meh, not so much.
