BURBANK, CA � June 24, 2008 � NBC's popular reality series "The Biggest Loser" is launching an 11-city, cross-country search to find new contestants for season seven of the hit show.

Season six of the series -- "The Biggest Loser: Families" � will premiere in the fall and will feature husband-and-wife teams and parent-adult child teams.

Teams for season seven of the show can include family members (siblings, cousins, grandparents, parent and adult child, etc.), spouses, dating or engaged couples, co-workers, former teammates or athletes, best friends, college students and retirees. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States.
