Hey!

I'm working on a brand new television series involving funny pranks and I am currently on the lookout for fun, outgoing, mischievous types who might want to take part in the programme. I thought this might be of interest to people on here :)

I would love to talk to anyone who is keen so please feel free to email me - rhys.towse@whizzkid.tv or casting@whizzkid.tv - for more info. Or call me on 0207 440 2571 if you have any questions.

Thanks once again,

Rhys

Sorry it does indeed look most legit.

I'm more of a writer than a performer.

Would any of the scenes include dressing as a aardvark and looking for food in Epping Forest?

I've never experienced the aforementioned gentleman on the BCG boards, but am more than aware of his wit, poise and website. Ergo: he'll undoubtedly be perfect for this programme concept.

Legal bit: what happens if one of the so-called 'Pranksters' is arrested for a particularly felonus act and taken into custody as a result? Will the production company be finding the individual's legal costs?

Better than that, I reckon they would do a fly on the wall documentary all the way through the legal process right up to incarceration. It would make 'gr-r-r-eat telly'..

I think so too. How about the follow up: 'Prank The Stipendiary Magistrate?'
