The makers of hit TV series Making Australia Happy, which aired on the ABC last year, are seeking an unhappy same-sex couple from Sydney to star in their next season, which will be filmed over January and February 2012.

The series will follow a cross section of four unhappy Sydney couples over an eight-week period. The selected couples will be working with a team of experts and receive practical and “scientifically proven advice to improve their relationship,” casting director Kristy de Vallance told the Star Observer.

Last year’s pilot series featured eight people from Sydney’s Marrickville whose happiness levels were classed as below the national average. A team of three leading happiness experts including a coaching psychologist, a mindfulness coach, a physiotherapist and mind-body specialist were given the challenge of providing the eight people with tools to become happier.

Couples of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Interested couples should email casting@acastofthousands.com.au or contact 02 8411 1045 for a confidential discussion before Friday 11 November.
