Free rent for young Sydney renters prepared to go on TV
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.
