                                     CALLING ALL POP CULTURE TRIVIA FANATICS!

Hi ANDREW,

VH1 and Entertainment Weekly's WORLD SERIES OF POP CULTURE is back for SEASON 2!

VH1 and Entertainment Weekly are traveling the country AGAIN to find 16 three-person teams who think they've got what it takes to compete in the most intense pop culture trivia tournament known to man, The World Series of Pop Culture.

The tournament, which will be taped to air on VH1 in summer 2007, will happen in mid-March in New York City.

Do you think you and your cohorts have the pop culture smarts to beat out the competition? Then come meet us in person and prove it!

Casting Calls followed by Regional Qualifying Games will be held by appointment only in the following cities on the following dates:

• New York: January 19 - 21

• Los Angeles: January 26 - 28

• Chicago: February 2 - 4

• Austin: February 9 - 11

• Orlando: February 16 - 18
