Channel 5 documentary looking for people about to change their lives

Pi Productions is casting for a brand new documentary series for Channel 5 that follows people as they relocate for a major lifestyle and career change.

We are looking for families or couples who are planning to ditch the 9 to 5 to pursue a career and lifestyle in something they are passionate about. You could be moving to the countryside to run a farm or smallholding, moving to the seaside to open a campsite or eco glamping site, or you could be starting an artisan bakery or even a yoga retreat. We want to showcase the amazing lifestyle business opportunities out there and show what it’s really like to relocate and change your whole lifestyle.

We would love to feature a story about a family choosing to quit the rat race and go self-sufficient or live sustainably in the countryside. It’s a hugely aspirational lifestyle choice and we are keen to capture that in our series. We would also love to feature a story in Wales - it’s a great country for sustainability and a popular and sought after place to move to.

We want to feature positive and aspirational stories. This is a brilliant opportunity for “life changers” to feature themselves and their new venture on a prime time documentary, and inspire other people in the process.

We are looking for people who are embarking on their journey this summer.

If this sounds like you, or if you would like to recommend someone you know, then we would love to hear from you.

Interested parties can email the casting team on or give us a call on 0203 761 4522. There is no pressure to take part at the initial enquiry stage.

Pi Productions is a TV company run by John Silver, who created Grand Designs and reinvented MasterChef. Please have a look at our website for more information about us: You can also follow us on Twitter: @PiProdCasting.
