Farming family sought for new TV series

TV production company Straywave Media is seeking applications to take part in a new series aimed to document all of the challenges, success and failures in the life of one Irish farming family in one year.

This fly-on-the-wall style doc series is looking for a family or group of 'characters' that can bring to life the challenges that come with running a farming business in Ireland.

The geographical location is irrelevant but the characters must be open to the highs and lows of running a farming business within a family environment.

'Ideally we would like to be able to show a diverse range of farming enterprises like a mixed diary and beef or a beef and sheep farm as well as a crop based farming business, and no operation can be ruled out at this point.

'The modern farming experience told within a family dynamic is the overall aim in this project,' saidJohn Norton, Head of Production.

'Given that we need to appeal to a wide range of diverse demographics we would be looking for a variety of age groups within the core group of characters involved.'.
