A casting call has gone out for Australian expats as contestants on Wheel of Fortune, to be filmed in London.
Graham Norton is hosting a reboot of the famed game show in the UK for Sony-backed Whisper North.
Norton is expected to host the Australian episodes, also produced by Whisper North for an unnamed Australian braodcaster. In the USA Ryan Seacrest will also succeed longtime host Pat Sajak.
Filming will take place Manchester in late November / early December. Applicants must be aged at least 18 and a legal resident in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man currently living in the United Kingdom.
Wheel of Fortune screened in Australia from 1981 in various versions until 2008 with hosts Ernie Sigley, John Burgess, Tony Barber, Rob Elliott, Larry Emdur, and Tim Campbell along with the great Adriana Xenides.
Nine has recently produced UK game show episodes of Tipping Point and Jeopardy both with Australian contestants. It isn’t clear if they are behind the latest game show revival.
