This just in from the CBS network:

Hi John,

I’m casting a new Baking Competition Series for CBS (based on “The Great British Bake Off”) and I am looking for the best amateur bakers in Southern California! I wanted to pass this opportunity on to your readers – people who love to bake/cook but are not necessarily professionals. We are seeking people in all professions who bake for the love of baking as a hobby or as a side business, but not as what they do for a living.

When: Saturday, December 1st, 2012, 11am-4pm
Where: Chef’s Inc., 10955 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90064

Are you a passionate amateur baker? Can you whip up an impressive cake, tart or loaf of bread? You may be the perfect candidate for an exciting new competition baking series on CBS!!

Amateur skilled bakers will compete against one another in baking challenges that will test every aspect of their baking skills. At the end of the competition, one baker will ultimately be crowned the winner. The series follows the trials and tribulations of the competitors – young, old, from every background and every corner of the United States – as they attempt to prove their baking prowess.

We are seeking all types of non-professional bakers from across the country, whether you’re an athlete, teacher, truck river or retiree, as long as you have the zest for baking, we want to hear from you!

Thank you,

Cherish Hamutoff
