The Recreation Display Network is hunting for Las Vegans interested in becoming contributors on its blackjack-centered demonstrate “Catch 21.”
Jane Livshin, a casting director for the demonstrate, claimed filming will consider put in Las Vegas around a 6-7 days time period in May possibly and June.
The game incorporates the policies of blackjack, but features pop tradition trivia queries, Livshin claimed. 3 gamers, who just about every receive one card to start out, contend per demonstrate with the probability to wander absent with $25,000.
Contestants who make it to the show’s last round are certain to go away with at least $one,000.
“We’re hunting for Las Vegas locals or men and women who will be in Las Vegas all through that time time period,” Livshin claimed. “We want men and women with great individuality from all walks of daily life who want to have some enjoyment.”
Livshin claimed “hundreds” of men and women will very likely be interviewed — all those exchanges will consider put remotely through Skype — but that much more than a hundred episodes will be recorded.
Casting officers are generally hunting for men or gals in their 20s and up, Livshin claimed, even though all contestants should be eighteen by May possibly one.
“It’s a enjoyment game,” Livshin claimed. “People have to have to know the policies of blackjack — in essence that the objective is to get to 21 prior to going around — but the trivia queries aren’t overly challenging. They’re not as challenging as the queries you’d see on ‘Jeopardy!’.”
The game is hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro — probably best regarded for his part as Carlton Banking companies on the nineteen nineties sitcom “The Fresh new Prince of Bel-Air” — with Witney Carson serving as the vendor.
“For everyone who might look at auditioning, it’s not daunting,” Livshin claimed. “It will be a enjoyment working experience. We’re encouraging men and women to apply ASAP.”
These interested in becoming thought of for an audition are requested to electronic mail a short narrative of why they’d be a very good in shape for the demonstrate, along with a modern image and hyperlinks to social media accounts, to [email protected].
