Illustration for article titled L.A. Production Company Looking for the King of the Nerds. Is that you?

An L.A. production company is looking for nerds for a new reality show called "King of the Nerds". If you think you've got what it takes, Lindsay Casting ( wants you to drop a line.

Are you a GAMER who owns every console and maxes out trophies and achievements? Do you have an outrageous collection of TOYS and/or COMIC BOOKS? Are you passionate about MATHEMATICS, PHYSICS, BIOLOGY, etc? Do you build ROBOTS and write APPS and PROGRAMS for fun? Do you consider yourself a MAKER or DIY person? Have you ever been to BURNING MAN? Are you obsessed with SUPER HEROES? Are you a D&D or WoW fanatic? Do you love everything SCI-FI? Are you ARDUINO proficient? Are you in MENSA?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above or you consider yourself a geek or nerd and are between the ages of 21 to 30, then audition today!

Include your name, age, photo, contact info, and brief bio on what you today's MOST INGENIOUS nerd!


While I must confess to a bit of trepidation about pointing you guys in this casting director's direction (for everyone involved), I'd feel bad if one of the Kotaku readers out there missed their big moment in the sun because I was afraid you were going to look like a dork on television. It's your life! Do us proud!

I have all three consoles, a gaming PC, tons of collector's edition boxes on display, a bookshelf laden with epic fantasy and sci-fi sagas, anime figurines and wallscrolls all over the place, a multimonitor home theatre setup on my office desktop, over 100 days logged into WoW, and I know the Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Warcraft universes like the back of my hand.

But I don't know shit about DIY. I've never built a robot, I've never written application, and I've never gone near an Arduino chip in my life. I can't program at all either, and I'm terrible at the sciences in school. I also know nothing about comic book superheroes. Also, what's Burning Man and Mensa?

Am I a nerd? I'm starting to feel a little inadequate, guys. =(
