Casting Basketball Players For New Reality Show

Radical Media (a TV production company in Los Angeles, California) and Budweiser have partnered up to cast skilled basketball players, 21-years-old and over (as of June 30, 2011), for a new reality show.  They are looking for players who have the ability to compete at the highest level, but were never able to pursue their dreams of a professional career for one reason or another.

A handful of lucky players will be selected for the show.  Each selected player will be provided with professional coaching and mentorship, along with quality film as they test their skills in a series of exciting challenges.  The winner of the show will earn the opportunity to play with some of basketball’s most well-known players and possibly receive a professional contract.

Interested applicants should submit a phone number, two photos and brief bio to [email protected].  The casting staff will contact a select number of applicants for further information.  They are accepting applications from both men and women across the globe.

The deadline to submit an application/inquiry is Friday, July 8, 2011.

The show’s official press release is embedded below, which explains more about the show and what the casting crew is looking for.
