The CW begins a nationwide search for mother-daughter teams (ages 18 and over) to compete in its upcoming reality series Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants, an eight-episode competition that features the pairs working together to win a beauty pageant. The search includes open casting calls in four major cities - Orlando (March 3), Raleigh (March 3), Dallas (March 10) and Phoenix/Tempe (March 10). For additional information, including audition requirements, applications and how to submit audition videos, please visit the "The CW Lounge" at www.CWTV.com.

Please note: Previous pageant experience is not required.

Crowned will feature mothers and daughters from all walks of life putting their relationships to the test as they face challenges that focus on preparing them for the pageant show finale, including expressing a 'style' for the mother-daughter team via clothing and swimwear, creative ways of expressing a point of view about issues in the world, and participating in the big pageant show dance number. Each week, three judges will oversee the competition.
