Wantto be on TV?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The TV company I work for is looking for people, probably in midlife, who are planning to change their lives by giving up their jobs, moving house within the UK, and doing what they've always wanted to do with their lives.

We would particularly like to feature someone who has always dreamed of becoming a cat breeder, or perhaps a cat rescuer, and will be devoting their lives to that after they've left their job and moved home.

We are making 30 self-contained programmes on different subjects for Channel 4 and could, of course, just make them about something else. But we love cats, as do I (Mine's called Tickle) and would like to give them some positive publicity on TV.

Please forgive me for adding the full text of our press release below, but we thought this would be the best place to catch the attention of people who care about cats.


Are you about to up sticks, pack in your job, and do what you’ve always wanted to do with your life?

If so, the makers of a new TV series for Channel 4 would like to hear from you.

Twofour Productions, responsible for hit series including The City Gardener, are looking for people planning to use their retirement, early retirement or semi-retirement as an opportunity to live out their dreams.

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 65-year-old who dreams of opening a seaside café, or a 40-something with a high-pressure city job who’d rather go and keep bees in a sleepy village,†said Executive Producer Jill Lourie.

“We’re looking for people who are clearing the decks, blowing away the cobwebs, and preparing to live the life they’ve always wanted.

“You might be down-sizing and moving to a country cottage with roses round the door, or spending your children’s inheritance on a Harley so you can slip into those leathers and get your kicks on Route 66.

“But we’ll be focussing on your new business venture, be it a cottage industry or something that will make the world sit up and take notice.

“Life Begins is not a show about making money - it’s a series about finding happiness – and our cameras will spend 12 months following your journey every step of the way from the farewell handshake at work, through the selling of your old home and the buying of your new one, to your first tentative steps into the new life you’ve always dreamed of.

“We’ll be watching you leaving your old friends, making new ones, meeting your new neighbours, and finding your feet in whichever arena you’ve chosen for your new life here in the UK.â€

If you’d like to take part in Life Begins or would like to know more, please contact Jon Massey on 01752 333900 or e-mail lifebegins@twofour.co.uk


Thank you - and hope to hear from you.

Dear Rosiemac

I don't know yet when the series will be shown, but it has been commissioned by Channel 4 and will go out as 30 one-hour programmes.

That will give at least one opportunity for a lot of cats to make their TV debuts.

We will be following people for about a year each, so it will be a little while before we can all sit down and watch the results.

I found TCS by searching through Google - and I'm glad I did.

Hope this helps.
