A television company planning a series on “Australia’s housing crisis” is looking for young Sydneysiders prepared to do chores in return for free rent.

Specialist television production company Screentime started a casting call on Tuesday May 14 looking for 18-30 year old Sydney renters happy to appear on a television series on housing.

“If you are a young person aged 18-30 and genuinely looking for a place to live contact us” says the social media post.

Screentime, which has produced some award-winning programs such as Anh’s Brush with Fame, Janet King and Underbelly confirmed that a series is planned and early casting is underway before a pilot will be shot. The company was tight-lipped about the premise of the show, production timeline and when it might be aired although a producer did say the show is expected to be announced in a couple of weeks.


The call for renters adds that the participants in the show would get free rent in return for some chores.

“Screentime television is making a television series focusing on the housing crisis in Australia,” the media post states.

The casting call, which was posted on northern beaches Facebook pages, has a picture of an elderly woman in a baggy green jumper beside a young tattooed woman in a skimpy top with a bare midriff.
