The cast for Common Sense, the “office-style” counterpart to Gogglebox, has been announced by TEN and Foxtel.
The format by Gogglebox creators Studio Lambert, sees everyday people from 10 diverse workplaces across Australia making sense of the news of the week. They will tackle news, current affairs, politics, sport and popular culture, drawn from newspapers, radio, magazines and websites including headlines and more obscure stories.
The cast includes “hairdressing mums Nicki (31) and Kathy (45); business partners Robert (70)
and Lord Frank (74); removalists and best mates Brett (29) and Lawrence (27); opinionated retirees Jean (92), Aileen (89) and Ted (86); entrepreneurs and self-proclaimed pop culture junkies Helen (30) and Sarah (32); cheeky young real estate agents Jake (29) and Ayden (21); young barrister Neal (39) and his mentor Mark (53); the potato-selling Yip family of Darren (49), Trudi (46), Aileen (70) and Matthew (39); mother-and-daughter team Lois (75) and Michelle-Anne (49), along with Betty (78), all of whom are partners in a bra shop; and the quintessentially Aussie butchers, Luke (26) and Eric (56).”
To be produced by Endemol Shine Australia, this is the second jointly commissioned series between Foxtel and TEN and again screens in back to back nights across both.
