Inventors Wanted for New Reality Show

Try out for "Made In America"


New York, NY-March 4, 2005- Have you ever said to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” USA Network, in association with the TV shopping network HSN, is looking for people who think they have a revolutionary invention, but need that one big break to get their product out in the market. “Made in the U.S.A.” is television's newest and most ingenious reality program where America's inventors and entrepreneurs get the opportunity to turn their dreams and passions into reality.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to polish and pitch your product for the chance to have it sold live on HSN. Contestants will participate in competitions, facing real-life challenges that inventors deal with in getting their product out to the public. Each week, products and inventors will be eliminated until the ultimate payoff when one lucky inventor team wins a contract with HSN.
