Never been on a date but looking for love?
Comfortable being in front of a TV camera?
The makers of Love on the Spectrum could be looking for YOU (or someone you know)!
They are currently casting for a new series about dating – and it’s open to anyone 18 and over who has not been on a date before.
“For this series we are wanting to tell the stories of people who tend to be under-represented when it comes to dating on television,” the producers say.
“This could mean people who identify as LGBTIQ+, it could mean people from different cultural backgrounds, it could mean people living with disability or with a condition, it could mean people whose appearance is different to what we tend to see on dating shows filmed on islands.
“Our series will feature a diverse range of people from all walks of life, we aim to make an honest and insightful documentary series telling the stories of people we don’t see enough of on our screens.
“We are also looking for people who are interested in meeting one of our main participants for a date, we will always do our best to pair people up with a good match. So if you’re up for a fun and positive experience, feel free to write in to us.”
The producers have stressed that the initial application process is very informal – just send an email with a brief description of yourself (and a photo and contact number) to: [email protected]
Who knows, we might be seeing you on the TV real soon!
