Job Description

This is a wryly comic, BBC documentary-style announcer VO for a live theater production about the Battle of the Sexes tennis match and gender equality.

We are looking for:
Female, US accent, some gravitas/authoritative, middle-aged sound, BBC, dry humor

- Think John Cleese-style humor but with a US accent
- the voice should be wry, and dryly witty
- the pace should be pretty peppy and keep moving
- don't need to strongly characterize the quoted voices, but it is ok for the VO to acknowledge the male character is a bit of a dimwit.

Here is a scratch track with a male voice for style reference (NOTE: samples should NOT be British accent):

We look forward to your samples.
