Shark Tank is Hosting Open Call Auditions in Southern California, NYC, and Charlotte

If you live in Southern California, New York, or Charlotte and have a great idea for a business, you now have the opportunity to pitch it to the casting team of ABC’s Shark Tank.    The show will be hosting open calls on selected dates in selected locations on March 30th, April 18th, and April 29th.   You get the chance to do a 1 minute pitch of your idea, very similarly to the show’s format.  Remember that if you’d like to participate you’ll have to fill out an application.

You know what would be a good idea as a new segment on the show?  Shark Tank auditions.  They could go with an American Idol style preview to the show.   I think it would be pretty entertaining.  Or perhaps they could do an edit and have some kind of 30 minute to an hour special containing the top failed audition moments.

Anyway, if you’re interested in trying to be on the show, all the details are below. Here’s the full release on their website

Attend an Open Call where you will be given the opportunity to do a 1-minute pitch of your business/product/idea to a member of the Casting Team — just like you would as if you were on the show. Come prepared to wow and dazzle us. Be advised: security may check your bag and you are responsible for your own parking. We do not validate. To apply at an Open Call you must have a completed Application Packet. Download the Application HERE and bring it with you. Please take the time to complete it fully and legibly.

All Open Calls are open to the general public. As long as you arrive during the allotted “Numbered Wristbands Distributed” time and receive a wristband you will have the chance to pitch. There is no reason to camp out the night before. Please be respectful of the neighborhood in regards to trash and noise. If you have any questions please email us at [email protected] We will get back to you as soon as we can. Please do NOT call the venue.

OPEN CALL NOTES:
– You will have time to go back to your vehicle after you receive your wristband to get any large or bulky props or equipment.
– There are no guarantees of access to power, internet or any other A/V equipment.
– You may only pitch one business, product or idea.
