This summer, E4 announced it would be launching a search to find the new on-screen faces of the future, led by production company Fully Focused.
As part of this search, the channel is heading out across the UK to meet the budding stars of the future and to encourage individuals to get involved.
The locations are:
• Liverpool: Sat 26 Oct, St John’s Shopping Centre (entrance) 10am – 5pm
• Birmingham: Sun 27 Oct, Rotunda Square, Bullring Centre, 11am – 5.30pm
• London: Sat 02 Nov, Carnaby St. 11am – 5.30pm
Across these pop-up events, E4 and Fully Focused are hoping to reach out to some of the promising unique talent in the local area - whether it be presenters, actors or comedians. They are looking for talent from across a range of diverse backgrounds and prior broadcast experience isn’t required. There will be opportunities for passers by to register interest, take part in some interactive activities and if they’re feeling especially confident, even film a short audition to camera!
If hopeful entrants are based in Liverpool, Manchester or surrounding areas on 26th Oct or Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham and surrounding areas on 27th Oct, then do come and pay a visit. If they can’t make it on the day, applications are still open and can be accessed by visiting https://form.jotform.co/92453920872866. To apply for the search applicants must do so online and be 18 years old or over.
Nick Bedu, Head of Production, Fully Focused said: “We are really looking forward to heading out across the nation to find the new faces of E4. I’m excited that through these pop-up events in Liverpool, Birmingham and London we’ll be able to raise awareness of this ambitious search and most importantly meet fresh faces. We want to find, develop and nurture a new wave of talent, so if you think you’re the next big thing, then we’d love to meet you”.
Through the search, successful applicants will be given training to help with their development, and a selected group will then be given exposure on E4, which could see them involved across digital content, social media, in-vision continuity or starring in new shows.
