English translation by Kjell Stjernholm, artistic director, Moomstheatre, Sweden.

He says, "Swedish Television is now looking for a future TV personality with a disability. The show in this case, called Bolibompa (pictured), is the most watched children's program in Sweden."

The original casting call is presented in his blog (in Swedish) at:;

In translation:

SVT now looking for a (future) television personality to kids' TV in the Kids Channel. The job includes to write scripts, watch movies and not least a lot of work in front of the camera.
We are looking for someone with a visible disability, for we lack and need the editorial experience in this field. We would also like female applicants as the team now consists of more men than women.

We believe that you who apply have experience of children (maybe your own childhood) and that you are a person who is comfortable with being in focus.

Please contact me with resume, cover letter, picture and if possible film clip,in which you tell us why you think you are the one we are looking for. Or tell me about people you think I should meet.

We will not interview all applicants to audition, but I responds naturally to all mail."
