    Scrapyard Supercar

    Hello,

    I hope you are well - I am the Casting Producer on a new TV Series and I was wondering if you might be interested in the following opportunity?

    EndemolShine North (www.esnorth.tv) is an award-winning independent TV production company based in MediaCity, Manchester and we are particularly renowned for our car-related programming. To date, we have made several programmes with Idris Elba, such as King of Speed (BBC 2) and Idris Elba: No Limits (Discovery), as well as two series of Supercar Megabuild (National Geographic). We are also the makers of Goblin Works Garage (Quest) and Inside Bentley: A Great British Motorcar (Channel 4), among various other productions.

    Currently, we are creating a brand new series for Dave designed to test your ingenuity, design skills and technical ability to the absolute max. In just 4 days, and using only what you can salvage, would you be able to create a machine that can take on a supercar in an epic showdown, head-to-head on Bruntingthorpe racetrack? Filmed at a scrapyard in Manchester, you would be set a specific challenge such as:

    Can your build beat:

    • The pulling power of a Mustang?
    • The torque of a Chevvy Camaro?
    • The acceleration of a Lamborghini?

    While we are at the very early stages of production at the moment and though I can’t give you any specific dates just yet, we are looking to start filming around October time. Your team would be required for filming across 4 days, plus one additional day later for the testing at Bruntingthorpe. We would take care of all of the travel details, accommodation and other logistics for you, as well as provide you with all the tools you need to participate. All-in-all, it is a fun, once-in-a-lifetime experience to pit your wits against some of the most iconic cars ever made!

    We are looking for teams of 4 people to participate in this exciting new series, so if it sounds like something you might be interested in, it would be great to have a chat on the phone so I can tell you more about the show and hear all about your experience. Alternatively, if it doesn’t sound like something you would be interested in, I would be really grateful if you could share the attached flyer on your social media or pass it on to some contacts to help me to spread the word far and wide and encourage people to participate.

    For more information, please e-mail: APPLY@ESNORTH.TV

    Thank you

    I seriously doubt that you are in the right place here. Somebody may want their 5 mns of fame but this forum is generally used by genuine car people rather than people following the latest perceived fashion trends to make shite tv.

    Have to agree, you need to go looking for the younger generation that want to be "famous" for 5 minutes (they won't last 15).

    If it was a genuine set up then maybe others would have a go but we have been around the block a bit and know that whatever gets done it will be "for TV" and therefore going by things before it will be garbbage for real car people as you will inevitably make it into a drama along the way to make it "interesting" for none car people.

    Also bear in mind most of us are not that pretty infront of a camera

    Already had my few seconds of fame on a Mobil oil ad back in the mid 70's.
    I was that kid on a bike providing background interest as they panned over a 105e in a garage
