Fox Reality launches the Search for the Next Elvira
Elvira has found a home for the reality show that she was shopping, and it is the Fox Reality Channel. The network will launch the appropirately named The Search for the Next Elvira on Saturday, Oct. 13.
During the “three, hour-long episodes,” according to the network, “contestants will compete to see if they can look the part, and present the same wit, poise and courage as the real Elvira in hopes of becoming one of Halloween’s most sinful icons,” according to the network. Viewers will vote after the second episode.
Casting will take place via videos or in person on Friday, July 13, on the Queen Mary. Because someone loves puns, it’s being referred to as an open “casket call” (insert groans here), where “Elvira will cut the group down to the unlucky thirteen participants.”
