NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you have what it takes to be the next great TV talent? That's what Cineflix wants to know. Talent scouts are coming to the Hyatt on Capitol Square, Tuesday, December 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to discover hidden talent at Cineflix's "America's Got REAL Talent" casting call.
The company that produces such hit shows as American Pickers, Property Virgins and Conviction Kitchen is on the hunt for professional realtors, chefs, bakers, designers, contractors, business owners, animal experts, vets, history buffs and anyone else who loves what they do and thinks they have what it takes to make compelling television.
"This isn't about creating yet another TV talent show – we aren't looking for singers or wanna-be celebrities," says Simon Lloyd, CEO of Programming at Cineflix. "We want to find real Americans with real skills who have a passion in life which they can communicate to a wide audience."
Applicants MUST HAVE a genuine expertise and a lot of character. For example:

- Do you run an exciting traditional business?
- Are you keeping a dying craft or way of life alive in a challenging economy?
- Do you have an unusual home/community/lifestyle?
