THE Nine Network has announced the commissioning of a new reality series for 2014, entitled "When Love Comes To Town" - and they are looking for single Snowy Mountain men to play leading roles.
The show is pitched as a feel-good, reality-romance series. It is not a competition and there is no prize money.
The producers, Southern Star Entertainment (who are responsible for Big Brother), are scouring the nation for single males, aged 25 to 39, who live in interesting parts of regional Australia. They are particularly keen on the Snowy Mountains region as filming would include many of the area's unique features.
Casting Producer of Southern Star Entertainment, Kate Rooney, says she is looking for men all over regional Australia, but is particularly interested in the Snowy Mountains region.
"Apart from being such a visually beautiful part of Australia, my research shows there is an oversupply of single blokes here too - especially during the off-season. We know how hard it is for single guys in regional areas to meet single girls, so this show literally brings the girls to them.
"Not only is it a great opportunity for single guys in the area to try and meet the girl of their dreams, it's also an opportunity to showcase their town on national television.
"We will be filming an entire episode in the home town of two successful gentlemen and we aim to get the whole community involved - including local businesses.
"I'm looking for men from all walks of life, with diverse backgrounds and interests from the Tumbarumba, Tumut, Cooma and Jindabyne areas to be on the show. All we need are some single men to apply"
Tourism Snowy Mountains CEO, Peter Sheppard, says this is a great promotional opportunity for the region.
"The national television coverage would be very beneficial in promoting tourism to the region with a value well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, the local economy would immediately benefit with a production crew of over 50 personnel staying in the region for up to two weeks or more."
