The Food Network will hold an open audition this Saturday for locals interested in being in a reality show based in New Orleans.
The concept pits two teams against each other, competing in various food-related challenges at a series of New Orleans restaurants and other locations.
The network isn't looking for just any old avid eater however. Here's the description from the local casting agency, Anne Massey Casting:
"We are looking for high-energy, dynamic and competitive two-member teams
(husband and wife, parent and child, two good friends, two co-workers,
etc.) who are between the ages of 25 and 45, and who have some connection,
knowledge and experience in the food industry.
NOTE: We are NOT looking for people who just enjoy a good meal. But if
you are a chef, caterer, professional baker or something along those lines
we want to meet you!"
Prospective team members must audition together. Auditions will be held this Saturday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Clearview Mall's Clearview Room, located across from the mall's food court.
The show is scheduled for a May taping in New Orleans. For more info, email Anne Massey Casting at firstname.lastname@example.org
