Outgoing Grandparents and Grandchildren Wanted By TV Production Company

A TV production company is looking for what it describes as “outgoing grandparents and grandchildren (18 and over) in the Guildford area who want to spend more time with each other”.

Successful applicants will be considered for a TV programme with the working title of Gran Knows Best, which Shiver (ITV Studios) is making for a major broadcaster.

Casting researcher Grace Dunsby said: “With grandparents reportedly only seeing their grandkids on average twice a year, it’s not surprising the two generations often know little about each other’s lives.

“In Gran Knows Best British grandparents will spend one-on-one time with their multiple grandchildren in an attempt to get to know them better and see if they can offer any help.

“Along the way, they will learn about the pressures their grandchildren face, the lifestyle choices they make, their hopes for the future and what, if anything, is standing in their way of achieving them.

“Our programme will allow grandparents to share their knowledge, advice and practical help while learning more about the lives, hopes and aspirations of their grandchildren.”
