 Post subject: Wanna be on the telly?
PostPosted: Tue Jun 04, 2013 1:32 pm 
Hi folks

Wondered if anyone might be interested in the below - (received the message on the Facebook group).
Most of us are probably a bit out the age range but you can always pass it on to others...

I wonder if you might be able to help me?

My name is Jay and I’m contacting you from Shine Television (makers of programmes such as Merlin and Masterchef). We are currently casting for a new Channel 4 series for which we are looking for groups of friends, who have a hobby in common, to go on a holiday of a lifetime. We’re particularly interested exploring the world Board Gaming and after having discovered you on the internet I wondered whether you had any members (age 18-25) in your group who might be interested in finding out more about this fun and exciting opportunity.

You can contact me at jay.dunn@shine.tv, or message me through facebook with a contact number and I can give you a call back.

I could pretend to be 18-25.

Will pass it on to the Expo crew though if nobody here is interested. Not sure there's many of them in the right age range either mind.

I can't publicly out myself as a nerd on tv. Would ruin my cool factor

If we change that "-" to a "+" then some more of us might qualify.

I think I'll reply to him with this age range feedback, at least - could be useful to him.

I am actually struggling to think of anybody other than Jack who is in that range. All of us on a Wednesday are clearly (!) above the range, and everybody there with Darrell is clearly below the age range.

There seems to be a missing generation of gamers here...

I think the biggest problem is that from 18-25 most people are discovering Sex and Alcohol. Boardgaming is not conducive to obtaining at least one of those.

I wonder how Strip Agricola would work?

I've given it some thought though and think I'd be amazing on TV so I'm up for it - who's with me?
