Should you start a family? Should you move to the city? Should you tell your family or work colleagues about your relationship? Perhaps your own audience of outsiders can give you some advice.
A major new observational TV series planned for Ten, The Audience aims to help people who are struggling to make a life-changing decision, and have approached Same Same to help find participants.
To answer their big dilemma, they open up every corner of their life to a group of people of diverse age, cultures and backgrounds who follow them for a week and draw on their collective life experience to help solve the person in crisis’ problem.
Leaving no stone unturned, the participants’ audience will meet friends, family and colleagues to find out where the trouble really lies. Can The Audience bring the wisdom of the crowd to bear for people in need, and change their lives for the better?
In a nutshell, this series will attempt to help people come up with solutions to their personal dilemmas and get them on the right track by inviting a group of people, from different walks of life, to offer advice. The task of The Audience is, to observe and investigate, by asking relevant questions, and giving feedback and thoughts, to the person who has a problem to solve, someone who is at a crossroads in their life, ultimately helping the person to make a decision, move forward, and be happy.
“For example, we’d love to feature someone that is struggling to come out to their family, friends or work colleagues who would really benefit from advice from the ‘wisdom of the crowd’,” the show’s producers tell Same Same. “But the dilemma can be anything life changing and not necessarily to do with their sexuality.”
The show is set to be filmed around New South Wales soon and its team is currently looking for people who are facing a dilemma and need help to solve it, plus also some people who have broad life experience, strong opinions and most importantly, who are honest and empathetic to become part of The Audience.
