However, because our work often involves using our senior relationships to promote people's careers, we can only help genuinely talented newcomers. As such, we reserve the right to refuse assistance if we think you don't have the required talent. If you are a TV presenter, TV host, actor or actress, or someone with a TV idea, please include a link to your showreel or TV treatment.The above-stated prices are subject to change at any time.
