    MTV to find new 'Blonde' star

    New reality show will cast next Elle Woods

    BY Sam Thielman

    January 21, 2008

    Call it the Grecian formula: Like "You're the One that I Want," the reality show that cast the recent Rialto revival of "Grease," Broadway tuner "Legally Blonde" is going to MTV to find its next Elle Woods.

    The current and original Elle, Laura Bell Bundy, recently extended her contract through the spring. The TV show is casting contestants in L.A., New York, and Orlando, Fla., in late January and early February to vie for Bundy's lead role. The bubblegum-flavored movie adaptation opened in April and has grossed a little over $30.8 million to date.

    The new show (not yet officially announced) isn't the first collaboration between the musical and the net; MTV broadcast the show in its entirety on Oct. 13.

    Didn't see the broadcast on MTV, however I did see the
    short number they presented During Macy's Thanksgiving
    Parade, and if that's any indication, bleh. Glad I didn't
    bother seeing it on MTV.

    Legally Blonde Readies MTV Casting Series;
    Musical to Tour in 2008

    Producers of Broadway's Legally Blonde have confirmed their venture with the MTV network to search for the musical's next leading lady in a new television reality series.

    As previously reported by Playbill.com, MTV's "Legally Blonde: The Search for the Next Elle Woods" began casting Jan. 24 in Los Angeles. Dates follow in Chicago, Orlando, Nashville and New York City to search for an actress to succeed Tony nominee Laura Bell Bundy in the principal role. MTV helped Broadway's Legally Blonde reach millions of viewers when it aired the musical in its entirety Oct. 13.

    The new MTV series is produced by Mark Koops and Howard T. Owens, who have also produced the television reality shows "The Biggest Loser," "The Restaurant," "Nashville Star," "Blow Out" and "Date My Mom." Amanda Lipitz, one of Legally Blonde's Broadway producers, joins the "Legally Blonde: The Search for the Next Elle Woods" producing team, which also includes Maira Suro and "The Hills" executive producers Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley.

    Producers of the musical also state that Legally Blonde will launch a national tour later this fall. Dates and casting have not been announced.

    Meanwhile, MGM continues the "Legally Blonde" franchise with a new movie for home entertainment entitled "Legally Blondes." The movie stars British twins Camilla and Rebecca Rosso, both of whom were featured during Legally Blonde's pink-carpet pre-show when the musical aired on the MTV network in October.

    The musical Legally Blonde, based on the hit film of the same name, will kick off its national tour at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Rhode Island Sept. 23.

    The musical – highly popular with the 'tween crowd, thanks in part to its television debut on the MTV network last fall – features a score by Laurence O'Keefe (Bat Boy: The Musical) and Nell Benjamin (Sarah, Plain and Tall), with a book by Heather Hach (the film "Freaky Friday"). Tony Award-winning choreographer Jerry Mitchell, who made his directorial debut with the musical, will also direct and choreograph the tour.

    The national tour will also feature the same creative team as its Broadway counterpart. Casting will be announced shortly.
