ITV - Television Documentary hoping to speak to Grandparents

Subject: ITV - Television Documentary hoping to speak to Grandparents
Hello there,
I work for a production company called 'Shiver' (ITV Studios) and I'm currently developing an exciting new television programme for a major broadcaster.

We are looking for outgoing grandparents and grandchildren (must be 18 plus). Who want to spend more time with each other.

With grandparents reportedly only seeing their grandkids on average twice a year, it’s not surprising the two generations often know little about each other’s lives.
In ‘Gran Knows Best’ (w/t), British grandparents will spend one-on- one time with their multiple grandchildren in an attempt to get to know them better and see if they can offer any help.

Along the way, they will learn about the pressures their grandchildren face, the lifestyle choices they make, their hopes for the future and what, if anything, is standing in their way of achieving them.

Our programme will allow grandparents to share their knowledge, advice and practical help while learning more about the lives, hopes and aspirations of their grandchildren.

We hope you may be able to help us spread the word about our programme that is looking for vibrant, fun and outgoing grandparents who may be interested in our project.

I was hoping you would be able to spread this amongst your Parish and the Community.
Please feel free to forward it onto any other networks you are associated with, friends, colleagues and family too.

If you/anyone you refer have any questions, please call us on 0207 157 4588 or email me at

Thank you so much in advance.
