Productions to record at Elstree sites.
Crazy Delicious will be recorded in Studio D at BBC Elstree this month. The six-part cookery series boasts the novelty of an ‘fully edible set’. Each week, three cooks will be challenged to create unusual culinary creations with ingredients from an ‘enchanted garden’. The series is produced by Optomen for Channel 4 and Netflix.
Meanwhile, the other Elstree Studios has seen the recording of a new craft show from Studio Ramsay. Airing across six episodes, The Fantastical Factory of Curious Craft, hosted by Keith Lemon and Anna Richardson, sees skilful competitors use their artistic talent to create craft makes of epic proportions.
Studioworks note the studio was turned into a fantastical factory complete with a flock of origami birds, a waterfall of vibrant, multi-coloured wool, and life-sized factory chimneys firing confetti and bubbles.
Later in the month, Harry Hill’s ClubNite, also for Channel 4, records weekly until the end of November in front of an audience of 300. Also a six-parter, it will showcase handpicked fellow stand-ups and will include Bridget Christie, Mawaan Rizwan, Rachel Parris and Huge Davies. As well as guest comics, the series will include sketches, games and music.
Under the terms of the facilitation, all three productions have Studioworks’ technical and ancillary areas at their disposal. These include dressing rooms, green rooms and production offices, in addition to support services including studio management, engineering, electricians and scenic staff.
“We’re launching into autumn with an impressive schedule across our portfolio,” said Meryl McLaren, Commercial Manager, BBC Studioworks. “We’re thrilled to be facilitating these unique shows and demonstrating how our expertise and first-class customer experience can deliver productions which really push the boundaries.”
