    TV production company seeking talent for brand new series

    Hello Rods n Sods Community,

    I'm a producer at Shine North Television in Manchester - we specialise in making automotive TV shows.

    We are in the early stages of developing a brand new car and bike build series and are looking to cast somebody in a lead role. We're looking for someone who hasn't been on TV before but who's natural passion for designing and building custom cars or bikes will clearly come across on screen.

    Candidates will ideally be under the age of 45 and must have a cool "garage hipster" kind of style - tattoos, maybe big facial hair etc. Perhaps they're a great mechanic, great at designing wild one-off customs, maybe they have their own shop building bikes or cars, or perhaps just a passion for the topic. We don't mind if they're a car guy, a bike guy or both. And we don't mind if they're male or female.

    If you or anyone you know may be interested, please email me at [email protected] or message me through this forum. Or if you have any great leads where I can find people like I've described above, do please get in touch!

    With thanks,

    James Redgate
    Producer
    Shine North Television

    Funny how age and appearance seem to be more important than ability going by the order of the qualifying points above.

    Dave Haskell is both talented and a character in front of a camera

    Lets hope it's a show about actually building cars and bikes and not about stupid ficticious deadlines, verbally abusing the work force and then bonding by going on days out. Not forgetting that the build deadline is approaching.
    I turned down a tv company for those exact reasons a few years ago.

    The tv company wanted to film me going to California looking for trucks and to see me doing some hard bargaining. Told them i buy from known sources, in fact almost 100% with Ray Adams at the time but i could go out and fake it all if they wanted but they would have to pay for the trip costs. They baulked at that. Wanted it all done on the cheap. In the States people like RR and AK and big Paul and young Paul make the money. Over here the tv company wanted to make all the money and i would benefit from the exposure. Aye right. F.off

    Jimmy, are you sure you qualify on the engineering prowese too, like putting a end mill in a pillar drill or turning the pages on a zodiac catalogue?

    I thought you could get locked up for exposure ? I know an old **** they could film rolling about on the floor like a tortoise unable to get upright whilst ranting and swearing at nothing and everything at the same time.
