CASTING CALL: Americans!!

TV3 seeking Americans, their friends & family for this Friday 22nd August

TV3 are currently in pre-production for a new game show, The Algorithm, and would like to hear from Americans who are fun and outgoing to get involved in the gameshow studio run-through this Friday, August 22nd, with their friends and/or family.
The idea behind the show is who knows you best – is it your nearest and dearest, or could a computer know you better! For the run-through/rehearsal, TV3 is looking for a group of four people-one ‘main player’ and three others who would form the team.  Everyone must be over 18. It’s not strictly just families – it can be a mixture of family and friends-the only criteria is that the three team members know the main player well. So it could be a main player, her husband, her mother in law, and her good friend. In that respect, it’s also fine to have a mix of both American and Irish! The group would be needed for a maximum of 3 hours and lots of fun is promised for all participants.

To find out more or to express your interest please email sharon.newman@tv3.ie or call 01 4193523.
