Hey! Wanna be on TV? A new program called Room Reno will be coming to W Network in May. The production company has put out a casting call and will be filming the series in Montreal.
If you’ve got a room you want to renovate, that can be done in about 2 days, you or your partner is handy, and you wouldn’t mind being filmed while you agonize over details, argue over paint colours, smash your finger with the hammer, sweat like a pig, and pull your pants up constantly (no flashing! this is TV after all), then read on.
By the way, if you’re accepted, the cost of all materials is covered (the show is partnered with RONA).
Good luck!! Show airs in May.
Here’s what they’re looking for:
– English-speaking handy men or women (DIY types or pros) in Montreal who have a room in their own home they need to renovate.
– The handyman and his/her spouse would both be featured in the show, so they should both be outgoing. Only one of them needs to be handy.
– The show is about renovation; not home staging or interior decorating.
– The couple should have a specific renovation project in mind but have possibly been putting it off due to lack of time or money. The reno project should be room-specific and should be something which is do-able in a few days.
The show will supply the materials for the reno, and the handyman or woman would be doing the actual work on the room.
They should send info about themselves, their home, and the reno they have in mind. They should also include pictures of themselves and their room.
My best advice to you, if you want a good shot at this, is to think of your e-mail to Stacey as an audition. You want to stand out, and you want your personality to shine through. Oh, and when they say ASAP, they mean ASAP!
Good luck! And please keep me posted!
