According to Variety, Starz Entertainment Group is making its first foray into original serialized programming with Looking for Stars, a national competition involving a search for new talent to cast in a speaking role for an upcoming Revolution Studios film. The skein will follow contestants from the first auditions through to the winner's appearance in the pic, which is said to be big-budget.

Auditions will be held in New York, Las Vegas, Orlando and Kansas City, and two finalists from each city will be flown to L.A. for a final judgment before a panel of industry veterans.

The show will begin to air in the spring.
