American Inventor 2 begins casting Sunday

ABC and Simon Cowell’s American Inventor begins casting this weekend for its second season. The show will visit six cities between now and the middle of April.

The show is looking for “a new and useful consumer product that can be marketed and sold directly to consumers through retail outlets” and “manufactured and distributed in high volume,” according to the eligibility rules. Kids can apply if accompanied by their parents.

The six cities are Los Angeles (March 18), San Francisco (March 25), Chicago (March 31), New York City (April 4), Orlando (April 9), and Houston (April 13). Producers “suggest you arrive at the venue early as we are expecting a large turnout.”

The second season debuts June 6.
