BET Holds Open Casting Call

So do you really think you’ve got what it takes to be a television show host on BET? Here’s your chance to prove it. For the first time in its history, BET will tour major cities throughout the nation in search of not one, or two, but a slew of new faces and fresh talent. The search kicks off with open auditions in New York City on October 3; high-tails it down to Atlanta on October 5; stirs up some dust in Houston on October 7; breezes through the “Windy City” of Chicago on October 10; and shakes things up in Los Angeles on October 12. The mission is a simple one — discover new talent to support the many new programs being added to the network.

Final audition locations will be announced in each city at a later date, with additional information being posted at http://www.bet.com. Auditions will be open to all male and female non-professionals ages 18 – 28. BET will also televise highlights from this national talent search as part of its new Fall ’05 season.

“If you think you’ve got it, then here’s your chance to bring it — literally,” said Reginald Hudlin, President of Entertainment at BET. “We want the network to reflect what America looks like. We’re looking to add some of the freshest, undiscovered faces to the outstanding hosts already on board. When it comes to infusing new energy into television programming, there’s no better way than by adding hot new talent to your arsenal.”
