If you are too old or too young for American Idol, not funny enough
for Last Comic Standing, not athletic enough for Next Action Star,
not hot enough for Are You Hot? and just plain don't like Star
Search, NBC's got the show for you.
NBC is casting two new talent-based reality shows, The Search for the Most
TalentedKid in America and Second Chance: The Search for the Most
Talented Senior in America, said Jeff Gaspin, executive vice president of
alternative series, long-form and program strategy at NBC Entertainment.
The two shows will premiere later this year on the network.
NBC plans to cast Most Talented Kid starting Feb. 15, with auditions
in Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Minneapolis. On Feb. 18 and 19, NBC will look
in Nashville, Tenn.; Orlando, Fla.; Denver; and Kansas City, and Feb. 22,
auditions will move to New Orleans; Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; and Dallas.
Talented kids aged three through seven, eight through 12 and 13 through 15
will be selected by a panel of celebrity judges, and finalists will advance to
Los Angeles to compete for the grand prize of a cash scholarship.
The show is a production of NBC Studios with Stuart Krasnow
executive-producing and Peter Johansen co-executive-producing.
