wish. Hit TV is looking for actors, artists,
designers, directors, musicians and other creatives

In what is set to be a 16-part, one-hour series, the
creatives, aged 18-30, with mayby the odd "oldie",
will pitch their visions for shows to the actual viewing
audience and Australia will vote for which concepts
theyd like to see turned into television, via
SMS, of course.

get much of a say when it comes to what formats are
turned into pilots so we thought wed give the
country a chance to influence whats on TV.
