LOS ANGELES--Nov. 21, 2013: Hollywood's latest casting call will take place this weekend at the L.A. Auto Show.

Hundreds are expected to audition for opportunities to appear in the 2014 automotive television series Bumper to Bumper. The new show will feature individuals, unique lifestyle experiences and cars.

Co-sponsored by Alcantara, HerHighway.com and the L.A. Auto Show, the casting call will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23 in Room 514, on the second floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center's West Hall.

"Everyone is welcome to audition," says Christina Selter, editor-in-chief of Her Highway. "Car guys or gals, moms, dads, kids and even grandmas will have a chance to star in a Bumper to Bumper show. If you're a foodie, fashionista, motorsports enthusiast, beauty guru or even a mommy blogger, there could be a spot for you."

Bumper to Bumper will air next year.

Alcantara is a unique Italian-made material found on some of the world's leading automotive brands. A number of vehicles at the L.A. Auto Show will have interiors furnished with Alcantara. Based on patented technology, it's also the choice of leading fashion designers, as well as the designers of accessories and home furnishings.

The Italian brand also hosted a private fashion show during the first press day at the L.A. Auto Show for designers, partners and auto-industry executives at Vibiana, in the city's downtown historical district. The party included fashions and accessories from Rosa Clandestino, Jamin Puech and PLORE's Zhang Xi.

Furniture designed by Christopher Guy and several Lamborghinis "dressed" in Alcantara also were on display at the Vibiana event.

The L.A. Auto Show runs from Nov. 22 through Dec. 1. Additional information about the show is available at LA Auto Show; about the Bumper to Bumper casting call at Her Highway, and about Alcantara at Alcantara.
