Major League Baseball and Endemol USA are teaming up to give one baseball fan the opportunity to move to New York to watch every single baseball game of the season and share his or her experience in a new web series.
Dream Job, the series is entitled, is set to launch by Opening Day, March 31, 2011. From the MLB site:
Major League Baseball is casting for an innovative new experience, which will require one lucky fan to eat, sleep, and live baseball for an entire season. If you’re a baseball fanatic and have an engaging, fun personality, this is the dream job for you.
Your new full-time job will be to literally follow baseball non-stop, as you will be charged with watching every single game of the 2011 season, blogging about all your thoughts and opinions, and discussing the hottest topics in baseball.
Applications closed last night at midnight. The project has received over 5,000 submissions since the online application was posted Feb. 17, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The lucky fan will be set up in an apartment in New York City with a live feed of every game, and will share his or her experience with baseball fans via social media, video blogs and web series episodes—an immersive experience a la ControlTV.
