SPIKE TV LAUNCHES A NATIONWIDE SEARCH FOR COMEDIC TALENT TO HOST NEW LATE-NIGHT TALK SHOW
Spike TV will launch a nationwide search this week to find undiscovered comedic talent for a new late-night talk show. The series is being developed and executive produced by Thom Beers, owner of Original Productions ( “The Deadliest Catch,” “Ice road Truckers,” “Ax Men,” and “Monster Garage.”)
The new late-night entry will differ from the typical late-night chatter of movie stars and politicos and will seek out ordinary people doing extraordinary things. The host search will focus on the same types: undiscovered comedic talent who mirror the regular, everyday guys the show will target.
Casting directors will scour the country and hold open calls in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Dallas (times and dates tbd), seeking two males who appear to be in their late twenties to mid-thirties. The perfect candidate will have a likeable, regular-guy appeal with inherent comedic talent. Candidates selected will e flown to Los Angeles for a screen test with network executives.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the right individual,” said Beers. “We want that laid back guy with whom every dude wants to be friends. He drinks beer, loves sports, video games and is unassuming and approachable.”
