Dad: Mr Oops

A lovable and naïve dad who keeps getting himself (unintentionally) into hot water. A bit of a muppet... but an endearing muppet. His family wife and two teenage kids have grown to be patient with his mishaps. Like that time he left the handbrake off and the car drove through the garage door. He thought it was kind of funny... but he knows it’s not. He’s perfected his “Oops... I’m sorry” face.

Male, aged 40 to 60

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Mum: Ms Commonsensical (non-caucasian)

A level-headed, super-organised mum who keeps things running as ‘normal’ as can be expected with two teenage children. Her husband, while he means well, is often creating problems that she needs to clean up. Like that time he left the handbrake off and the car drove through the garage door. Sure, inside she rolls her eyes, but she keeps her cool. Most of the time.

Female, aged 30 to 55

  • Ethnicity: Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander, Black / African descent , Chinese, Eurasian / Pan Asian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Latinx / Hispanic, Māori, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern , Native American , Pacific Islander , Pakistani, South Asian

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Son: Homebody son (non-caucasian)

The wonderfully enthusiastic but slightly (and lovably) dim-witted son. He has no intention of moving out of home. I mean, why would he? His parents are alright, he doesn’t hate his sister and everything is free. Plus he really does like hanging out with his dorky dad.

Male, aged 18 to 30

  • Ethnicity: Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander, Black / African descent , Chinese, Eurasian / Pan Asian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Latinx / Hispanic, Māori, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern , Native American , Pacific Islander , Pakistani, South Asian, Other

Applications closed 15 December 2020.

Daughter: Difficult Daughter

The surly, dry and only daughter of an otherwise happy family. There’s a lot in life that irritates her, but nothing more so than her dim-witted 20-year-old brother. Even though they are both grown up she still runs to mum to complain about anything that he does.

Female, aged 15 to 25
