Nothing will ever top Elvira's Movie Macabre host, the queen of Halloween, Elvira - Mistress of the Dark, but she is now searching for an evil handmaiden to assist with her Halloween hosting duties on the Fox Reality Original The Search for the Next Elvira, which debuts on Fox Reality, the only all-reality, all-the-time cable and satellite network, on Saturday, October 13 at 9:00 PM PT / 12:00 AM ET. Natural 9 Entertainment (Reality Remix, Fox Reality Really Awards) is producing the series exclusively for Fox Reality.
On Friday, July 13, Fox Reality will host an open "Casket Call" at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA for their original series The Search for the Next Elvira. From the hundreds of horrific hopefuls, Elvira will cut the group down to the unlucky thirteen participants, while the others will be told to "Rest in Peace." Later that evening, Elvira will be crowned with her new title "Queen of Halloween." Instructions for entering the Fox Reality Original The Search for the Next Elvira through the open "Casket Call" are posted on www.foxreality.com.
"We are thrilled to hold the 'Casket Call' on Friday the 13th at the Queen Mary - a notoriously haunted LA landmark. All walks of life are welcome to see if they have what it takes to become the Next Elvira," said Carol Sherman, Executive Producer, Natural 9 Entertainment.
The Search for the Next Elvira is a reality series consisting of three, hour-long episodes during which contestants will compete to see if they can look the part, and present the same wit, poise and courage as the real Elvira in hopes of becoming one of Halloween's most sinful icons. Following the second episode on October 20, audience members can vote for their favorite aspiring Elvira who will be crowned as the next "Mistress of the Dark" during the LIVE finale on Halloween.
"There are simply too many ghastly engagements for one 'Mistress of the Dark' to entertain," said Elvira. "I am searching for someone to share my tricks with - someone to help spread the Halloween spirit."
