NBC Casting For American Gladiators

September 06, 2007 10:13 PM by Joe Blackmon

As Reality TV Magazine reported back in August, NBC is bringing back the classic competition series "American
."  NBC has now announced that they will be auditioning both contenders and gladiators for
the upcoming season beginning Saturday, Sept. 8 in Los Angeles before
moving onto four additional cities around the U.S including New York,
Chicago, Miami and Dallas.

The show’s contenders are "weekend warriors" who have excelled and take pride in their level of fitness and want to test their physical ability in the Gladiator Arena. The "gladiators" are a charismatic and eclectic group of warriors who are ready to take down our everyday challengers with hard knocks and explosive attitudes.

As in the traditional "American Gladiators" franchise, the everyday athletes compete against the professionals in physically challenging contests. Classic events such as the joust, The Wall, Hang Tough and the Eliminator will be played in front of an arena filled with thousands of rabid spectators.

Open castings will be held at the following locations:

LOS ANGELES, CA – Saturday, September 8
9:00am – 5:00pm
Gold’s Gym
360 Hampton Drive
Venice, CA 90291

All contestants must come dressed in workout attire and appropriate footwear to be considered. They will be tested on physical ability in areas such as strength, speed, balance and agility. We recommend bringing a workout towel and water with you to the audition. All contestants must be at least 18 years of age and a legal US resident.

The new series will be produced by MGM Television (the original producers of the show) and Reveille (NBC’s "The Office" and "The Biggest Loser," "Nashville Star," "Ugly Betty"). Reveille’s Mark Koops, Howard Owens and David Hurwitz ("Fear Factor") are the executive producers.

    This is going to be great! Glad NBC is bringing it back to reality TV. Hopefully some of the original Gladiators will make appearances, would love to see veteran Gladiator host the show! Bring back Nitro, he was always a crowd favorite!!!
