Inventors New Show

ABC has another reality-TV program idea from the producers of American Inventor. Now inventors will have an opportunity to show their stuff on American Inventor, the new prime-time program set to premiere in early 2006. Contestants can show off their product and have it voted on by the American public, with hopes to win the million dollar prize for best concept. Auditions are being held through November and December for those of our clients who are less tight-lipped about their inventions. Host City is New York for December 7th. Time and place have yet to be set.

“An embodiment of the ultimate American dream, the show will uncover the hottest new product and make some struggling inventor's dream come true. The show will celebrate the best in homespun American ingenuity and will turn one person's idea into the next big thing.”

There are some products that are ineligible:

Drugs
Medical devices
Plants
Adult entertainment products
Firearms and explosive devices
Hazardous chemicals or materials
Computer programming software
Any product or service that might impact national security

The FAQ page offers quite a bit of advice on patent protection and the risks involved in this kind of promotional activity.
