Apple is co-producing a TV show about app design and development, and you might be able to play a starring role.

On Tuesday, the production company working with Apple on the show, Propagate, announced an open casting call for people who want to be on "Planet of the Apps."

The show is Apple's first foray into TV series production and is described as "a new unscripted series about the world of apps and the developers who create them."

Applications are being accepted through the show's website until Aug. 26. The producers will then travel to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and New York to meet with app developers and tech entrepreneurs.

Details of the show's precise format are still unclear, but Propgate said it would allow developers to "break through and share their ideas with the world."

Propagate is headed by TV executives Ben Silverman and Howard Owens. Apple previously said musician Will.i.am would also be involved in the show.
