April 12, 2006, Westport, CT: Meet Garrison, Host & Co-Producer of the TV pilot, DINERS, as well as co-producers from Janet Leslie Productions, Inc. at the April 23rd Radical Bike Show at Bridgeport Harley Davidson (I-95, Exit 30, Stratford, CT). They will be promoting the Open Casting Call for the DINERS TV pilot to be held on May 20th at Bridgeport Harley Davidson. Persons with a passion for motorcycling who also love to eat at diners will have 2-minutes to convince the producers that they should be among the four finalists to ride with Garrison in the DINERS pilot.

Through an advertising and PR campaign spearheaded by Bridgeport Harley-Davidson's advertising firm, motorcyclists from all over will be invited to audition on May 20th to ride and appear with Garrison when the pilot of DINERS is filmed at the Post Road Diner in Norwalk, CT. An exciting and unpredictable day of auditioning is planned. The footage from the open casting call will be integrated into the pilot.

Garrison, Host and Co-Producer, is the heart and carburetor of DINERS. He mixes his love of motorcycles and diners to create a full menu of unscripted entertainment and spontaneity as he converses with owners and patrons in a 'home style, ' unscripted fashion that both reflects and supports the social ease of every diner experience:

No stranger to television, Garrison was Host and Executive Producer of the cable television program, "Out of Your Comfort Zone." A published songwriter, performer and president of his own indie record label, Garrison has heated up some of New York City's hottest showcase venues including legendary CBGB's, The C-Note, DownTime, Acme Underground and Connecticut's Toads Place, one of the premier music halls in the country. Fox-TV/Channel 61 aired a special news report on him and he rocked a Guitars For Life benefit concert filmed by The Learning Channel. Garrison was a producer and A&R executive for London Records, Inc.

The DINERS Pilot will be presented to networks as a concept for a series of 1/2 hour shows. Prospective diner sites have been identified for subsequent episodes. Prior to May 20th visit Bridgeport Harley-Davidson to get an audition application form or download it from the link online at the dealership web site. Winners will be chosen by Co-Producers Garrison Leykam and Janet Leslie. Finalists must be available for the August 2006 filming in Norwalk, Conn.
