I was digging around on the Internet trying to find out more Information about Invention USA
Apparently InventorSpot writer Myra-Per-Lee posted Information on the home page of InventorSpot about Invention USA casting calls back in November 2012Calling All Inventors! Casting Call For Season 3, INVENTION USA!
Last night was the premiere of Season 2 of The History Channel's inventor show, Invention USA. No sooner did the season begin, that casting calls for Season 3 of the hit series get on the road too. So now inventors have another chance to strut their stuff before the casting directors and the show's hosts, Reichart Von Wolfsheild and Scotty Ziegler.
The application is simple. Initially, the show just asks for your personal contact data and a general description of your invention - how it works and what it does - a photo, and a video, if you have one. Additionally it asks for the status of any patent or application you have in process.
The major challenge, as far as the application goes, is that you must have a working prototype. It can be a homemade or manufactured part.
Then, and this is my very strong recommendation: you should at least have a provisional patent on the invention. But if you have a patent or have applied for a full patent, that's even better.
If the casting directors like your submissions, they'll set you up for a personal interview with the Invention USA hosts to meet with you and your invention... and the rest (to be seen on the show) may be their investment in the success of your product.
To apply, visit the Casting Call at TGroup Productions.com
I contacted T Group & they said Invention USA is on hold at this time
I wonder if this is the reason why Invention USA is on hold INPEX® 2013 Keynote Speakers:

Scotty and Reichart have created hundreds of products for big name companies. For every single success you see, there were at least a dozen that died on the vine. In today's economy, investors and companies alike are not willing to take chances on unproven ideas. What can you do to increase interest in your product? What fails, what wastes your time? What works, and what is the formula of the winners?Reichart Von Wolfsheild

Blending his talents from several fields he made history conceiving one of the first multi-player modem video games, kicking off a franchise. He has designed everything from toys to weapons and developed more than 120 products for companies such as Boeing, Disney, Dreamworks and Mattel, and is always looking for the next fun challenge.Scotty Ziegler
