Casting has opened for a new factual series in which autistic people will be mentored in interview skills.
The series by Helium Pictures (Last King of the Cross, Paper Dolls, Six Festivals) is for an undisclosed broadcaster.
“We are giving autistic people with an interest in journalism the opportunity to take part in a new introductory journalism program facilitated by a major university which will be filmed for a new factual series for nationwide broadcast TV,” a casting notice announces.
“Successful applicants will be mentored by one of Australia’s most renowned interviewers and will take part in interviews with high profile Australians.
“It doesn’t matter how old you are or what experience you have. Filming will be supported by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect).”
Applicants must be over the age of 18 years and be based in Sydney at the time of filming between 22 April and 14 June 2024. This is a part time, unpaid opportunity.
