E4 is on the hunt for new on-screen talent who could be the faces of the future.

The nationwide hunt will be led by production company Fully Focused, who are searching for the next generation of stars, including  presenters, actors and comedians.

The aim is to uncover talent from across the country and find people from a range of backgrounds, none of whom have any substantial mainstream or terrestrial broadcast experience.

Those selected will be given training to help them develop and will be given exposure on E4.

There will be the opportunity to work across digital content, social media, in-vision continuity and even star in new shows.

E4 has a reputation for showcasing new talent and kick-starting the careers of famous names, such as Daniel Kaluuya, Russell Brand and Michaela Coel.

Fully Focused are an award-winning non-profit production company that is 100% youth driven with a diverse team of creatives aged 16-25, focused on creating content for young people.

The team of young creatives use film to challenge perceptions and progress young lives.

Content is curated from a pool of up and coming young filmmakers on their YouTube channel MYM.

The company also makes documentaries, films, music videos, news reports and online content.

Some of their most successful productions features talent currently impressing across the film and TV landscape, including Percelle Ascott, Joivan Wade, Mandip Gill and Rita Bernard-Shaw.

Leah Parker, business development manager at Fully Focused, expressed her excitement to be working with a major broadcaster that wants to be more inclusive about who and what is shown on screens:

“With our past, present and future dedicated to nurturing young talent, Fully Focused are perfectly placed to unearth the next generation of on-screen personalities.”
