Master manipulators apply within! Network 10 is currently casting for its all-new psychological reality series, The Traitors.

As reported in episode 184 of the So Dramatic! podcast, producers are posting casting calls in all corners of the internet, including LinkedIn.

One callout asked potential applicants whether they “enjoy a murder mystery” and already, we’re on the edge of our seats!

It continued: “What are your investigative skills like? Australia will soon be making a new TV show that will require brains, wit and determination to make it to the end.”

Attached was an official image from the casting site that asked: “What would you risk, and how far would you go to win a life-changing prize?” And TBH, we’ve seen people wave goodbye to their dignity for less!

What Is The Traitors?

According to 10Play, The Traitors is an “international psychological adventure series”.

“Deception, lies and betrayal are the name of the game”, and perhaps Married at First Sight could adopt this as its slogan next year?

The series will see Australia’s most “cunning” participants shack up in a mega-mansion and work together to complete “dramatic and challenging missions”. Across the series, they’ll also accumulate money that goes towards the prize pool.

However, some contestants are secretly Traitors who will “attempt to deceive and manipulate” their way to the end by ousting the “loyal” stars.

The Traitors Isn’t Exclusive to Australia

Alongside Australia, US and UK iterations of The Traitors have also been comissioned.

The global reach follow its success in the Netherlands (where it’s known as De Verraders) according to Sabrina Duguet of the show’s distributor,  All3Media International.

“The Traitors has captured the TV industry’s imagination and we are thrilled that 10 in Australia will be part of this brand’s journey around the world,” she said.

Endemol Shine CEO Peter Newman also said Australians can expect an “entertaining mix” of drama once the series hits screens.

“[It] will have them glued to their screens from beginning to end,” he said. “We are thrilled to be partnering with 10 on this unique and noisy format.”

The Traitors will premiere in late 2022.
