Contestants Wanted for New Whanau Game Show on Maori Television
Award-winning production company Scottie Productions is looking for contestants to take part in WHANAU FACTOR, a new family friendly game show coming to Maori Television later this year.
Producers are looking for stand-out family pairs – grandchild and grandparent, aunties and nephews, kids and mum or dad – who can speak a little te reo Maori and are available to film in Auckland. Contestants must be at least 15 years old with a 15-year age gap between the two teammates.
The 13-part series will be fun, fast-paced and entertaining, with Matai Smith (winner Best Presenter - Entertainment/Factual at the 2012 NZ Television Awards) at its helm.
In every episode, two teams of family pairs – plus a celebrity team leader – will go head to head in a battle that tests their musical, mental and physical skills over three rounds, in the hope of winning a jackpot of fantastic prizes.
Harking back to an era of light-entertainment, but with a modern twist, WHANAU FACTOR mixes key elements from successful overseas shows with old-fashioned Maori humour and a healthy dash of family rivalry.
“This is the perfect opportunity for you and your whanau to shine on Maori Television,” says Matai Smith. “Don’t just read this and ignore it - register now to win prizes galore.”
Episodes will be filmed in front of live studio audiences at Maori Television’s Newmarket studio throughout June and July.
If you have a whanau member to team up with and would like a chance to win some great prizes, or would like to register to attend the live shows, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHANAU FACTOR starts Friday September 6 at 8.00pm on Maori Television.
