Channel 4 seeks applicants to trial ‘the simple life’ for new series.

Have you ever wanted to trial a simpler life? Five Mile Films are making a new TV series for Channel 4 and are seeking participants to leave modern life behind in exchange for a simpler lifestyle. 

Filming will take place over a number of months across the summer in rural Britain.

The series is about saying goodbye to smartphones, Zoom calls, social media, Amazon – all the distractions and pressures of normal life – to go and live a simpler life, experience the ‘good life’ fantasy and think about what our modern life and its multitude of choices, has really given us.  The show will explore the idea of whether in fact, less is more.

Five Mile Films are looking for people of all ages and experiences to apply; families, couples, single people – to take time out from their normal life and step into a different way of living.

If you’re interested in escaping the city and taking part, email with your name, age and contact number, explaining briefly why you would like to try a simpler life.
