The Lingerie Bowl (search) is expanding its horizons.

The pay-per-view event, featuring lingerie-clad models playing touch football, is expanding into the World Series and NBA Finals in 2006, according to producer Horizon Productions (search).

Up to this point, the "event" has aired during halftime of the last two Super Bowl telecasts.

"The Lingerie Sports Franchise will offer an escape from overly produced conservative lip-synching shows surrounding the Super Bowl, NBA Finals and baseball's World Series," said the event's creator, Mitch Mortaza.

Casting for Lingerie Bowl III has begun, "with over 2,200 models competing in football mini-camps across the country for 52 positions with the four Lingerie Football League teams," according to a Horizon Productions press release.

The teams are New York Euphoria, Los Angeles Temptation, Dallas Desire and Chicago Bliss.

Casting for the Lingerie Finals and the Lingerie Series will be held in October.
