Hunt is on to find wise guys for new BBC TV se­ries

The Oban Times - - News -

THE BBC is mak­ing a new TV se­ries that looks at bring­ing tra­di­tional wis­dom into the lives of or­di­nary peo­ple.

Pro­duc­ers are cast­ing for lo­cal char­ac­ters with sig­nif­i­cant life ex­pe­ri­ence who could pro­vide ad­vice and in­sight to oth­ers.

They are look­ing for groups and in­di­vid­u­als who could help some­one go­ing through a piv­otal time in their lives – whether it’s be­com­ing a par­ent, get­ting mar­ried or chang­ing ca­reers or some­thing else.

The se­ries is in­spired by the idea that in our hec­tic lives many in­di­vid­u­als find them­selves out of touch with wis­dom that has helped oth­ers for cen­turies. Peo­ple are more likely to turn to Google with prob­lems than ask a grand­par­ent, re­li­gious leader or com­mu­nity mem­ber.

The cast­ing team are look­ing for great char­ac­ters who can be pos­i­tive role mod­els with their own opin­ions and in­sight.
