ITV The Big Audition series going behind the scenes of casting world

The Big Audition is a  new factual  six part series which goes behind the scenes of the casting world. Episode 1 airs on ITV at 9:00 pm on Friday 5th October.

It shows  real people being cast for real jobs, which have the potential to be life-changing. The casting panels will be searching to fill all sorts of roles and anyone can audition, from professionals to first-timers. This fixed rig programme  uncovers the decision-making process of the panels  to reveal what really goes on in the casting studio.

Through intimate interviews, there are heart-warming, funny and touching backstories with  highs and lows along the way, but who will have what it takes to land the job of their dreams?
Each week three jobs are up for grabs. From West End leads to stunt doubles celebrating the highs and lows as  people give their all to impress the panel and land their dream job.

The Big Audition Studios opens its doors for the very first time with three very different jobs on offer: dog model, TV shopping presenter and King Henry VIII. The waiting room is filled with barking, as a pack of pooches compete for a contract worth £12,000 and the chance to be the cover star of leading dog magazines Dogs Today and Dogs Monthly. The wannabe dog models include a Chihuahua with a wardrobe to die for, a Mexican hairless often mistaken for a hyena, a rescue dog with one eye and a sausage dog who can balance a jaw-dropping array of objects on his head.

TV shopping channel ‘Ideal World’ are looking for a new fitness presenter. A panel from the company are searching for someone engaging, unflappable and skilled at selling. Olympic bobsledder Toby, nervous Liverpudlian Holly and Wigan window cleaner Barry are amongst the hopefuls out to prove they’ve got what it takes.

The final king-sized casting is for the prestigious role of playing Henry VIII at Hampton Court. Several of the potential Henrys arrive in full royal regalia, from the bling to the tights. But who will be crowned King? Will it be historical novelist Tony? Or perhaps bus driver James, who believes he’s destined to succeed because his route takes him past Hampton Court every day?
