Legion supports 'The Making of a Star'

With help from The American Legion, a reality performance television program debuting this summer on a major broadcast network is looking for talented servicemembers and veterans.

Judges for “The Making of a Star” will be traveling the nation in the coming weeks, holding auditions in eight different cities, to select 12 finalists to compete for a chance to become a star. The series begins in July and wraps up in New York City during the week of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Created by the producers at 5 Streams Global Entertainment, “The Making of a Star” is on a mission to prove that veterans, military personnel, National Guard members and reservists have the talent it takes for stardom.

Auditions, some of which will be in Legion posts, are planned for this spring, when the 12 finalists will be selected. Audition contestants will be drafted into a “performing arts boot camp,” where they will be trained to sing, dance and entertain. They will compete for various prizes, including a role in a feature film, a live international tour and other various sponsor-related awards.

Episodes of the star-studded series will be shot in New York City, where troops from all over the world will be entertained by some of the biggest names in the industry in every show.

The entire series supports The American Legion by raising awareness of the organization in audition cities and making a substantial financial contribution to Legion programs.
