NYC: Casting For New Restaurant Reality Show This Week

Here's a dinner reservation that might end up with you being on TV. Leopard Films is working on a show for an unnamed "major cable food channel" starring an unnamed celebrity chef as host, and focusing on the opening of a new restaurant in Long Island City (Queens). The first episode films this Thursday, and producers are looking for diners who are willing to show up for opening night, be filmed and pay for dinner (wine is included).

The willing and able should email with name, address, email, telephone number, how many in the party and age range of the guests. The reservations will favor those from Astoria and LIC, but anyone's welcome to try, though diners must be 21 or over. Those who are selected will be notified and given the exact address, and will be expected to show up at 7pm sharp (or risk the celebrity chef's wrath).
