GET ON THE COUCH BRISBANE
GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA IS CASTING
Foxtel and The Courier Mail today announced that casting is open for two new households to join the hit local-production Gogglebox Australia – and for the first time those households will be from Brisbane.
Currently streaming its ninth season on Foxtel and broadcast Wednesdays at 7.30pm on the Lifestyle Channel, Gogglebox Australia features a diverse range of personalities from differing backgrounds and ages whose television commentary has made them into “TV experts”.
The current Gogglebox cast is a 60/40 split of Melbournites and Sydneysiders, so the addition of households from the Sunshine State will be an exciting change for the 10th season.
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia, executive producer, David McDonald said, “We’re very excited to find Queensland personalities to put in the mix. When Gogglebox first started we were restricted in what we could accommodate with the fast turnaround of the show. Now in our fifth year of production, it’s time to expand, so it was decided (very wisely) to go north and capture the unique voice of the Queensland territory.”
The Brisbane households will join brother and sister Tim and Leanne; bubbly Greek best friends Anastasia and Faye; happily married couple Lee and Keith; the adorable and sports-crazy Jackson Family; the fun-loving and cricket-mad Delpechitra Family; best mates Adam and Symon; dealers in Indigenous Art Mick and Di; the close-knit Dalton Family; married couple Matty and Sarah Marie and their friend Jad; and the three generations of women in the Silbery Family.
Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network 10.
Gogglebox Australia Season 9 is available to stream weekly following its broadcast on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel. Seasons 1 – 8 are also available for those wanting to catch up on past episodes.
