Love Productions is producing an ambitious and attention-grabbing documentary series for BBC3 which is rooted in clear social purpose. In this series we will explore whether single mothers, who are struggling to cope on their own or finding it difficult to realise their true potential, can transform their lives by adopting an alternative way of living.
To do this, we are going to give ten single mothers and their children the opportunity to experience what it’s like to live together in a group under one roof. The accommodation, which we are looking for, will be organised in a similar way to a house-share where everything is shared and everyone helps and supports each other.
Right now we are starting the casting process for the ten single mothers and their children. We are looking for single mothers from different backgrounds, ethnicity, class and approach to parenting – who are interested in trying this new way of life.
We hope this radically different support network will improve things for the mums who live in the house-share and perhaps even encourage single mothers in Britain to do the same.
I wonder if you may be able to post the attached information on your website or any forums so that any single mums interested in the show may apply? All they need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send them an application form.

Seems a genuine enough email, but I can't find any information about "love productions" so I'd personally suggest asking them loads of questions to make sure they are a valid production firm.
