Local “star” search for Santa Barbara’s  Restaurant’s newest TV Ad

SANTA BARBARA (November 3, 2010) – If you’ve ever wanted to star in your own TV commercial, this Saturday may be your big break into show-biz. Santa Barbara’s newest restaurant Arch Rock Fish will be having a ‘15 Seconds of Fame!’ contest to find a TV star for an upcoming TV ad. “This could be the start of a new TV career for some of our local talent here in Santa Barbara.” said Scott Leibfried, Executive Chef and Arch Rock Fish partner.

Leibfried is himself a well known TV Celebrity Chef on the FOX Network show “Hell’s Kitchen” and is partners in Arch Rock Fish with veteran restaurateurs Jeremiah Higgins & Mike Anderson, plus former pro Galaxy soccer player-turned-coach Cobi Jones.

Auditions for Arch Rock Fish restaurant’s first annual ‘15 Seconds of Fame!’ contest will be this Saturday at 11:00 AM for ‘best performance in a TV ad’ determined by a panel of special guest judges John Palminteri of KEYT-TV; Catherine Remak, K-LITE radio personality; and Santa Barbara Daily Sound publisher Jeramy Gordon.

The judges will pick the winning TV star to appear in the Arch Rock Fish ‘15 Seconds of Fame!’ TV ads. “Everyone’s invited to audition, eleven AM sharp this Saturday… we hope to find one of Santa Barbara’s talented undiscovered TV stars.” said Mike Anderson, Mixologist and Arch Rock Fish partner. “Come on down for the auditions and enjoy my delicious ‘November Sky’ martini mix of rum and fresh watermelon juice.” said Anderson.

The ‘15 Seconds of Fame!’ will be broadcast on several area TV channels. Auditions will be this Saturday, November 6, at Arch Rock Fish, 608 Anacapa Street, at 11:00 AM. “It’ll be great seeing how well the contestants do, and I can’t wait to see the videos.” said Liebfried.

“Contestants are invited to come as you are, come as yourself, come as a group, or even dress up as an Arch Rock Fish!” said Leibfried.

The ‘Arch Rock’ name comes from the uniquely shaped rock at Anacapa Island, the icon and gateway to the Santa Barbara Channel Islands. Arch Rock Fish is located at 608 Anacapa Street.
