Bóthar go dtí an Whitehouse
Abú Media are currently in pre-production on a new 6 part historical Documentary Series for TG4 which tells the story of how the Irish changed the face of American politics, charting the history of Irish-American politicians from the 1800's right up to JFK's election as the first, and only, Catholic President of the United States in 1960.
The Series focuses on 6 different politicians and Abú Media are seeking look-alikes for these 6 people to take part in drama reconstructions (without dialogue) which will be filmed in May in Galway. “We are very excited to be going into production with this series”, says producer Brid Seoighe. “The material is very rich and will make for an outstanding series. And with Obama’s election to the White House the series is especially timely, considering the many parallels people have drawn between Obama’s and JFK’s victories.”
The six main characters are shown below. If you think you look similar to any of the men in the pictures below or what they might have looked like in their 30’s email a picture of yourself and a CV with all contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 24th.
As well as the 6 main parts Abú are also casting for many other roles in the series so if you are interested in seeing yourself onscreen you can send a picture and cv to email@example.com by April 24th.
