BURBANK, CA � June 24, 2008 � NBC's popular reality series "The Biggest Loser" is launching an 11-city, cross-country search to find new contestants for season seven of the hit show.

Season six of the series -- "The Biggest Loser: Families" � will premiere in the fall and will feature husband-and-wife teams and parent-adult child teams.

Teams for season seven of the show can include family members (siblings, cousins, grandparents, parent and adult child, etc.), spouses, dating or engaged couples, co-workers, former teammates or athletes, best friends, college students and retirees. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States.

While they will try to see everyone, "The Biggest Loser" casting teams guarantee the first 500 people in line will be seen. People will not be allowed to line up prior to three hours before the start of the open call. Candidates should bring a non-returnable photo of themselves and their partners.
