ITV Documentary is Looking for Grandparents

Shiver Productions and we are developing a new television programme for a major broadcaster.

We hope you may be able to help us spread the word about our programme that is looking for vibrant, fun and outgoing grandparents who may be interested in our project.

We are looking for grandparents who have 3 or more adult (18+) grandchildren who they would like to spend more time with.

Many grandparents reportedly only see their grandchildren on average twice a year, it’s not surprising the two generations often know little about each other’s lives. In the programme, grandparents will spend one-on-one time with their multiple grandchildren in an attempt to get to know them better and see if they can offer any help.

Along the way they will learn about the pressures their grandchildren face, the lifestyle choices they make, their hopes for the future and what, if anything, is standing in their way of achieving them.

Our programme will allow grandparents to share their knowledge, advice and practical help while learning more about the lives, hopes and aspirations of their grandchildren. It should be a fantastic opportunity.

Filming for the programme will not take place straight away, this is the initial casting stage and we are only hoping to speak to people over the phone. If you are selected to be on the programme our Production team will arrange all the logistics for you!

I was hoping you could share this email along with our flyer, amongst the community, colleagues, any networks you may be associated with, aswell as friends and family too.

I have attached a flyer which can be shared on social media or printed off and stuck on a notice board.

We’re hoping to hear from people as soon as possible!

If you/anyone you refer have any questions, please call us on 0207 157 4588 or email me at shivercasting@shiver.tv
