United Plates of America


Do you have an idea for America's next great restaurant? Are you sitting on a billion dollar concept? If you think your restaurant idea has what it takes to go national and bring in millions of hungry Americans, then apply now to NBC's new reality competition series, "United Plates of America." It could be one of the biggest prizes in reality show history and you don't have to have any cooking or restaurant experience . . . just one great idea!


From NBC and Magical Elves, the Emmy Award-nominated producers of "Project Runway" and "Top Chef," comes a big-event competition that will award one contestant the opportunity to open a new restaurant chain in four cities across America!

The contestants' fate will be decided by a panel of real investors who fund the chain of restaurants with their own money.

"United Plates of America" challenges creative and ambitious people to realize their dream of opening the next great restaurant. Many people have great ideas, but actually making it happen requires substantial financial backing and business connections that few people can claim. The winner will be selected by a panel of some of the most important names in both the dining and business worlds that will invest their own money in the final restaurant chain and have a huge stake in the ongoing success of the game's winner.

This show is going to make the American Dream come true for someone out there - all you need is one great idea. Do you have it?"

minute to win it

nbc introduces new family-friendly game show... "minute to win it" do you have what it takes to win 1 million dollars!!!

"minute to win it" is a new family-friendly competition series, hosted by Guy Fieri, featuring 10 deceptively simple games that require savvy contestants to complete under pressure with a prize of $1 million awaiting the winner.

Competitors will face 10 challenges that escalate in level of difficulty. Each game has a 60-second time limit and failure to finish the task on time will eliminate the contestant. At various points throughout the game, the contestant can walk away with the money earned up to that point, but it'll take nerves of steel to complete all 10 tasks to win the $1 million.

If you are interested in trying out, please e-mail our casting team at

Please be sure to include in your e-mail your contact info, city you live in, photos, and a paragraph about yourself.

Applicants must be 18 years and older.

* Does your partner have an annoying obnoxious habit or item that causes fights?

* Does your partner do things like withhold sex after a fight?

Whether you argue about parenting, pets, fashion, money, in-laws, weight, housework, chores, communication, neatness, jealousy, past history, friends, sex... Whatever you argue about, we want to hear from you. Tell us why you absolutely NEED a MARRIAGE REF to weigh in and decide who is RIGHT and who is WRONG.

Couples across America ... we want to hear what absolutely makes you nuts when it comes to your partner! Tell us your beef and you might just get the chance to state your case on TV. Wouldn't it be great to settle the issue once and for all?!
