PBS Series Holds Casting Call for Pet Product Inventions

New TV contest lets burgeoning inventors show off their ideas for dog, cat or other pet products.

Pet product invention contest onlineEveryday Edisons, a TV show chronicling the development of consumer product innovations, is on the hunt for the next big pet product.

The PBS series, which is gearing up for its fourth season, is holding a casting call online for innovative pet product inventions, among several other product categories. The show will consider all levels of inventions, ranging from a sketch on a napkin of a well-described product to a manufactured product or patented prototype.

Seven finalists in each product category will be flown to Charlotte, N.C., for a final casting call in Feb. 2011. There, the finalists will present their ideas to the Everyday Edisons team.

From the Charlotte casting call, the Everyday Edisons team will select a total of 10 products to engineer, develop and market. All will be documented on the TV show’s fourth season at no cost to the chosen inventors.

Product entries for household pets and pet owners must be submitted by midnight PST on Thursday, Dec. 30, 2010. For more information, visit www.everydayedisons.com
