A casting company is seeking Norwegian-Americans in Minnesota for a reality TV show in Norway “Alt for Norge.” There's an open call Dec. 1 at the Mall of America, the Albert Lea Tribune reports.

The show pits Americans of Norwegian descent against each other in various contests. The ultimate prize is $50,000 and the chance for participants to meet their Norwegian family.

The casting call is 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is in the executive center in the Mall of America, on Level 4 East.

Here's a clip from a show (the show is in Norwegian, but of course the contestants are speaking in English).
