We are looking for actors with a sports background. A new sports league is looking to get commissioned and we are seeking actors to be the first to take part as we believe we need players that have great improvisation skills and the ability to learn a new skill quickly. This show will require actors to compete for £5,000. The players will have to show team spirit but also create a lot of drama so the audience engages with the show. The duration of this project will be 8 weeks, 2 of which will be training and learning the new sport. The remaining 6 weeks will be for players playing at a stadium in London in front of a crowd.
Everything will be shot once and no retakes, so players must be in character at all times.
We are looking for actors with:
-Strong teamwork skills
- Sports background, such as rugby, football and nfl
- Giving direct interviews

The show will require no more than 50hrs from all actor with the winning actors going on to actually win professional full-time contracts. Actors will need to be comfortable taking on tackles as the new sport is similar to American football but without the heavy gear.
