NBC AND TOMMY MOTTOLA ARE LOOKING FOR AMERICA'S NEXT TOP INTERNET BAND

Winner Of "StarTomorrow" To Secure Record Deal With Casablanca Label

BURBANK, Calif. -- April 26, 2006 -- NBC's new, exclusively online music competition, "StarTomorrow," is conducting a nationwide search for the first Internet superstar band or singing group.

All outgoing and charismatic solo artists, bands, singing groups or duo's in America who are at least 18 years of age are encouraged to submit auditions to "StarTomorrow" producers. The top 100 submissions will be invited to audition in-person.

When the winning group or artist emerges, its members will secure a record deal with the Casablanca label (a division of the Universal Music Group) who will also offer career guidance.

"StarTomorrow" is expected to debut this July on NBC.com with a nationwide search that will ultimately narrow the field down to 100 of America's best groups and bands that have been screened for entry into the competition. Approximately twenty band auditions will be released each week for the first half of the sixteen week series. Viewers will then evaluate them and will have a week to vote on which groups and bands will move on to the next round. The finalists will then compete in the second half of the series. The format will include covers of pop, rock and country favorites and original material, but as the series goes deeper into the competition, the focus will shift more to original songs.

The series will be produced by The Mottola Company, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. Dave Broome (NBC's "The Biggest Loser," "Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope"), JD Roth ("The Biggest Loser," "For Love or Money"), Todd Nelson ("The Biggest Loser," "For Love or Money") John Foy ("The Biggest Loser," "For Love or Money"), Tommy Mottola and Jeb Brien (The Mottola Co.) are the executive producers.

Forgoing a dedicated home studio, "StarTomorrow" will take its act on the road to reach out to performers on four regional locations across the country (sites will be announced later).

Audition videos, DVDs and other applications can now be sent to StarTomorrow, 10061 Riverside Drive, Toluca Lake, California, 91602 or by logging on to NBC.com for further details.
