Open Tryouts to Commence for Upcoming VH1 Game Show

VH1 and Entertainment Weekly are scouring the country to find 16 three-person teams who think they’ve got what it takes to compete in what the cable channel is calling “the most intense pop culture trivia tournament to date,” “The World Series of Pop Culture.”

Do you know which college Allie Hamilton attended after leaving her summer love Noah Calhoun behind in the 2004 film “The Notebook?” Do you know which TV theme song asks you to “take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and there you have…” Are you good under pressure? Do you want the chance to win up to $100,000r Then here is your chance to become slightly rich and momentarily famous.

The tournament, which will be taped to air on VH1 in late summer 2006, will happen over the weekend of April 28th through the 30th in New York City. So whether team would consist of friends who gather to watch Lost every Wednesday, co-workers who spend lunch hours discussing their favorite films, or siblings who grew up addicted to sitcoms, the three members must have extensive knowledge of the films, tv shows, music, and pop culture happenings of the 70s, 80’s and 90’s through today.

Casting Calls followed by Regional Qualifying Games will be held by appointment only in the following cities on the following dates:

  • Los Angeles: March 4th/5th
  • Chicago: March 11th/12th
  • Dallas: March 18th/19th
