RTE are currently casting for a brand new TV quiz show – and Laois families have been requested to apply.
The show, set to be called ‘Home Advantage’, is being produced by a TV company called Loosehorse.
And one of their Production Coordinators is desperately looking for interested Laois families.
They said: “Laois people are so hard to get to apply for anything on TV.
“They are all very shy so we are trying to push this around Laois in the hope that some families will come forward.”
The show, presented by RTE 2FM DJ Jennifer Zamparelli, is described as a “fun and entertaining general knowledge quiz series where Irish families compete to win a cash prize.
“You don’t need to be a hard-core quizzer, if everyone in the family knows a little, it might be enough to win a lot – because there’s a top prize of €5,000 up for grabs.
“But there’s a twist – only one player will be present in the TV studio, while their participating family remain at home – beamed in on a giant screen and called upon at key moments to offer their wisdom.
“Over a series of three frantic brain-teasing rounds, only one team can qualify for the final round and a shot at the jackpot.”
A family team must consist of two adults and two children. the adults must be over the age of 18 and the children must be at least 9 years of age, and not older than 16 years of age, on May 1 2021.
One adult will be playing in studio, while the rest of the team will play from home via video link. The team members must all be members of the same household.
Jennifer Zamparelli said: “I’m thrilled to present this new family quiz show Home Advantage.
“I’ve been working with the team and I think it’ll be great fun. So, if you and your family would like to have a bit of craic and also be in with a chance to win some cash, we’d love to hear from you.”
The date for broadcast of Home Advantage on RTÉ One will be announced soon.
