ReelzChannel to Choose One Lucky Fan from May 27 Auditions to Report from
“TwiCon” Convention & Appear in National TV & Web Newscasts
WHO: REELZCHANNEL® - TV About Movies™, the TV network for movie lovers that gives viewers a fresh perspective on all things movies, is turning New York City into the “Twilight®” zone on May 27 when the network comes to Borders bookstore in Columbus Circle for a one-day, three-hour open casting call event to search for a new on-air entertainment reporter. REELZCHANNEL’s resident “Twilight” and “New Moon” correspondent Naibe Reynoso will be on hand to oversee auditions and offer advice and tips. Other special guest appearances TBA.
WHAT: Calling all “Twi-hards”! Summit Entertainment’s “New Moon” may give rise to a new star on REELZCHANNEL when the network holds open auditions for three hours at the Borders bookstore in the Time Warner Center on May 27. At least five potential on-air reporters will be chosen from the talent pool that turns up at this event, and one lucky person will be selected as a new TV entertainment correspondent for REELZCHANNEL who will get the chance to report for the network from the “TwiCon” convention in Dallas this summer.
Bone up on your facts and come prepared to "imprint" yourself on REELZCHANNEL to seal your fate as the chosen one! All participants must be of legal age in their state of residence (18 in New York) and will be tested on their “Twilight” knowledge and assessed by REELZCHANNEL’s Naibe Reynoso and other members of a panel on their on-the-spot reporting skills and overall capabilities as an on-air personality.
The top candidates chosen from the NYC casting call event will be announced on the air on REELZCHANNEL TV during the network’s “Spotlight” series that airs on Monday, June 29th at 10 p.m. ET. — which is just one part of the “New Moon” updates the network will air throughout June and July in regular “Movie News” broadcasts. Then, on July 27th, REELZCHANNEL will name the correspondent selected to go to Texas at the end of that month to report for the network from “TwiCon.” (“TwiCon” is the much-anticipated event organized by the tremendous worldwide network of “Twilight” fans, which will include events that focus on the fall release of the “Twilight” movie sequel, “New Moon.”) The new REELZCHANNEL correspondent may appear on-air and online in programming, movie newscasts and other coverage in the months leading up to the fall movie release of “New Moon.”
