Open Casting Calls to Take Place in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in Search of the New Romantic Couple Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zuko As Featured in Legendary Musical

BURBANK, Calif. -� September 14, 2006 -� "Grease" is the word in October and November when NBC begins its search for the romantic lead roles of its new talent competition series "You're the One That I Want."

Prospective participants can visit NBC.com for further details and a complete list of approved "Grease" songs -- including some other suggestions from the era.
