Entertainment channel puts out casting call for new, locally made, fishing show
Quest Arabiya fishing for participants for new reality show
Accomplished fishermen with a thirst for their 15 minutes of fame should head over to Quest Arabiya’s website. Quest, the Arabic-language factual entertainment channel based in Abu Dhabi, is calling on MENA’s best fishermen (and women) to apply for a chance to be part of its latest original programme produced in the region.
Fishing, says Quest, is a deeply embedded tradition in Gulf culture. As desert-dwellers with minimal water resources for agriculture, the Gulf’s historical population depended on fishing for survival and many residents continue to rely on fishing as a means of living or simply as a hobby to enjoy.
The casting call for the new programme is open to all adults aged 17-40, who want to be a part of a locally-produced show and enjoy the spirit of adventure. The opportunity is a unique one for any dedicated fisherman as the cast will be taken to different locations around the region to battle it out and prove themselves as the region's top fisherman.
Commenting on the campaign, Khaled Khouri general manager of Quest Arabiya, said: "This new programme is very exciting for us as not only will it feature regional talent, shine a spotlight on a favourite hobby and sport in our region but also speak to a tradition that is rooted in Emirati culture. Our audiences love adrenaline and adventure and this programme will deliver just that.”
Interested applicants from across the region are invited to submit their application through Quest Arabyia’s website at www.questarabiya.com/casting or through firstname.lastname@example.org before October 30th 2018
