The Search For Enthusiastic Kiwis Ready To Start Over In A New Career Is On

SKY Television’s Vibe channel and Top Shelf Productions are on the hunt for Kiwi residents to participate in their new unique career makeover series, Starting Over.

The new series will follow eight people who long for a new and exciting career change but don’t know where to start, as a team of specialists including a life coach, careers strategist, stylist and experts appropriate to each participant’s unique needs will set them on their way to a new career and life.

Vibe channel manager Kristin Prendergast is thrilled to be a part of the project and encourages viewers who are ready for a change to visit the website to download a registration form.

“Starting Over is a genuine opportunity for New Zealanders to realise their dreams and makeover their careers and lives.”

“Whether it’s someone who feels stuck in a rut, always wondered what would happen if they’d chosen another path or is looking for a way to rejoin the workforce due to a change in personal circumstances, we’re looking for motivated people to take part,” she said.

SKY Television CEO John Fellet said the new series is the latest in a strong local content slate produced by the network.

“Creating Starting Over with Top Shelf Productions further expands our locally produced entertainment content portfolio,” he said.

SKY Television has long-produced local content, broadcasting over 25,000 hours during 2011 alone.

“Many Kiwis will be aware of the vast amount of quality sport SKY produces, but wouldn’t know that we broadcast more than 14,000 hours of locally produced general entertainment content last year,” says Mr Fellet.

Starting Over’s team of specialists will provide invaluable professional direction to participants, whether they lack confidence, have been out of the workforce raising a family, come through an illness, relocated to a new city, or simply dream of a more fulfilling career path.

To complement the new start, participants will also receive a physical makeover courtesy of Starting Over’s sponsors and stylists.

Participants will need to commit to several hours of filming each week over a 16 week period, and set their sights on accomplishing goals and challenges off camera as well as on.

Applications to be on the Starting Over series can be downloaded online at or call 0800 4 NEWSTART to have an application posted.
