TDS Telecom’s sister company, U.S. Cellular, recently brought a casting call for ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank, to Milwaukee. Ordinarily Shark Tank only conducts casting calls in larger markets, but U.S. Cellular sponsored three extra stops in Des Moines, Iowa, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Greenville, North Carolina.

TDS Telecom was there and created a Flickr album to give you a behind the scenes look at the casting call. The newest season of Shark Tank premieres at a special time Friday, September 26 at 8|7c on ABC. Keep checking out the blog for more content from the casting call, including interviews with hopeful entrepreneurs, U.S. Cellular staff and the show’s Casting Director, Scott Salyers.
