Dominic Savage’s BAFTA-Nominated Anthology Series I Am to Return to Channel 4

Suranne Jones to star in I Am Victoria, along with Ashley Walters

I Am, the critically acclaimed, female-led drama anthology series from award-winning writer-director Dominic Savage has been recommissioned by Channel 4.

Produced by Emmy winning Me+You Productions, the brand new 3x60” series enters production in early August, with BAFTA-winning actress Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster, Gentleman Jack) confirmed to star in I Am Victoria, alongside co-star Ashley Walters (Top Boy, Bulletproof). Further names are yet to be announced.

Each episode of the three-part series will be developed and written by Dominic Savage in collaboration with the leading actor – for whom, in each case, the story will have personal resonance.

This will be an authentic and thought-provoking series exploring contemporary female experiences and themes, including trust, relationships and mental health.

Suranne Jones said: 
“I’m delighted to be involved in the next series of I Am. Dominic always tells important stories with great sensitivity and the process so far has been wonderfully collaborative and open which is something I thrive on. I can’t wait to make what will be a very personal and thought-provoking piece and I’m thrilled to be telling this story with Ashley. I hope it really speaks to people and helps continue the important discussions around mental health.”

COMPETITION: Win My Brilliant Friend - Series 2 on DVD

My Brilliant Friend - Series 2 is out on DVD on August 3rd

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 Copies on DVD to give away.

The award-winning, beloved Neapolitan Novels by Italian author Elena Ferrante tell an epic, riveting tale of love, loss, hardships and the enduring power of female friendship.

Elena Greco is an elderly writer whose best friend Lila has disappeared without a trace, so Elena begins to write the story of their lives growing up together in a mob-ruled, poverty-stricken neighbourhood in 1950s Naples. As children, Elena (Elisa Del Genio) and Lila’s (Ludovica Nasti) friendship is put to the test as financial disparities provide them with very different opportunities in life. Lila’s writing genius is stifled after her parents can no longer afford further education and put her to work, while Elena flourishes in school, no longer in the shadow of her friend’s brilliance.

The second series follows the Elena (Margherita Mazzucco) and Lila (Gaia Girace) as adolescents into the Swinging Sixties, where this fierce, complex friendship must endure romantic rivalry and shocking violence, as the notorious Solara gangster family becomes harder to avoid entanglements with. Both growing into beautiful young women, they draw the attentions of a powerful gang-leader’s son, a grocer, a mechanic, a schoolboy and his father, all while navigating the trials and tribulations of marriage and university, abuse and motherhood, and critical acclaim for a novel that sparks jealousy between these women whose lives are so closely intertwined.

This dramatic and deeply moving story of a lifetime shared is deftly directed by celebrated Italian filmmakers Saverio Costanzo (Hungry Hearts) and Alice Rohrwacher (Happy as Lazzarro). Delve into this decades-long, push-and-pull friendship filled with secrets kept, and trust built and broken. Will Elena ever unveil the mystery of Lila, her brilliant friend, and her worst enemy?

Sky original psychological thriller The Third Day to launch on 15th September on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV

Gripping Sky original, psychological thriller The Third Day, starring Jude Law and Naomie Harris, will launch on Tuesday 15th September on Sky and NOW TV. Set on an alluring and mysterious British island, this six-part visceral drama will take viewers into its captivating and distortive world where all is not as it seems.

Created by Dennis Kelly and Felix Barrett, the ground-breaking series from Sky Studios in collaboration with HBO, Plan B and Punchdrunk will be told by three, stand-alone but interconnected stories, not only on screen but also in an innovative live broadcast of an epic theatrical event.

The series’ first three episodes – ‘Summer’, written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden, sees Sam (Law), drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast. Isolated from the mainland, Sam is unable to leave the idyllic and dangerously enchanting world he has discovered, where the secretive rituals of its inhabitants bring him to grapple with experiences of loss and trauma hidden in his past through the distorted lens of the present. As boundaries between fantasy and reality fragment, his quest to unlock the truth leads the islanders to reveal a shocking secret.

Following ‘Summer’, viewers will be immersed in the world of The Third Day through a theatrical live event – ‘Autumn’ - to be broadcast live on Sky Arts and online. Featuring members of The Third Day cast including Jude Law, viewers will follow the events of a single day in real time. Capturing events live and in one continuous take, this cinematic broadcast will invite viewers deeper into the mysterious and suspenseful world of The Third Day, and will blur and distort the lines between what’s real and what’s not. It is created by theatrical innovators Punchdrunk and directed by founder and artistic director of Punchdrunk Felix Barrett.

Naomie Harris stars in ‘Winter’ which concludes The Third Day over a further three episodes, written by Kit de Waal, Dean O’Loughlin, Dennis Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe. Helen (Harris) is headstrong outsider who finds herself inextricably drawn to the island in her pursuit to seek answers. As the lines between fantasy and fact are distorted, Helen and her family are caught between the island’s splintered forces, which gives rise to a fractious battle to decide its fate.

The three episodes of Summer will begin weekly from the 15th September on Sky Atlantic. Autumn, the theatrical live event, will broadcast on 3rd October on Sky Arts and online. The three episodes of Winter will then begin weekly on 6th October on Sky Atlantic. All of The Third Day will also be available through NOW TV.

Created by executive producers Jordan Peele (Get Out) and J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker). Also including showrunner Misha Green (Underground), director Daniel Sackheim (Game of Thrones and True Detective), Ben Stephenson and Bill Carraro.

Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club coming to ITV later this year

The experience of enjoying live comedy from exciting new talent in an intimate space is unbeatable.

With venues currently closed, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club - a Hotsauce TV Production - will showcase the very best new talents performing in a recreation of the vibe and atmosphere of a small comedy venue, all filmed within Covid guidelines.

Jonathan is always the first to champion up-and-coming talent and this new series will see him get behind fresh new comedians on the cusp of their big break, offering them a stage upon which to make people laugh.

All destined to be household names of the future, these acts will perform to an audience under the watchful eye of comedy and broadcasting talent, Jonathan. Each new 30 minute episode - which will air on ITV later this year - will see four new faces perform their short but memorable set while more established names will get the opportunity to try out new material.

Jonathan says:
“Apart from the excuse to wear make-up, my favourite part of this job has always been giving exciting new talent a platform to show off their skills. The excitement and joy in seeing a new face come out and deliver memorable comedy is a wonderful feeling, and we want to make sure as many people as possible get to experience it. There’s so much incredible comedy talent around at the moment with all too few opportunities to do what they do best. I’m very much looking forward to giving these acts the exposure they deserve, having a good laugh and finally leaving my front room.”

The show kicks off with the soaps first ever huge stunt, and its first ever villain, Rob Hawthorne, as it journeys back to 1999. A young Tony, Lewis, Ruth and Lucy are in serious danger as they are being held captive in a huge water tank. How will they escape Rob’s evil plan of vengeance…

Talking about the new series, Nick Pickard said:

“It is so lovely being back on set, and seeing all of my fellow co-stars, and what better way to return than to host a new special birthday series with the lovely Jennifer Metcalfe?  Although it’s been so difficult to remember my scripts after all this time, I’m a bit rusty…!

“I can’t believe it’s been as long as 25 years. After my first call back for Tony Hutchinson, I would never have guessed that I would still be here all these years later.

“Things are a lot different on set – the change is definitely noticeable, but there’s no better feeling than being back -  it’s home. There are lots of exciting throwbacks in store for Hollyoaks@25, so keep your eyes peeled.”

Jennifer Metcalfe added:

“I for one am proper excited for Hollyoaks@25, and to get to do the first set of intros with the legendary Nick, who plays Tony, was just brilliant. It was lovely to see Nick again, even if we were two metres apart.

I’m glad to be announcing Hollyoaks@25 as I’m really looking forward to seeing week long sets of episodes, era by era, and it’s going right back to the start too.”

After weeks of fan speculation, E4 has today revealed the celebrities joining the agency in the brand new series of Celebs Go Virtual Dating.

This new spin off to E4’s flagship reality series Celebs Go Dating, will bring all the dating drama of its sister show, but with the added challenges of video vetting love matches and trying to find that spark on a socially distanced date. How will Chloe Ferry, Levi Davis, Pete Wicks and Shaughna Phillips cope when getting up close and personal is off the table? Will they still excel in turning on the charm, or buckle under the remote pressure?

Since the beginning of lockdown in March, the UK’s pool of singles have been spending an average of seven hours a week ‘virtually dating’. With an even greater need for human interaction during this time, will the Celebs Go Dating agents successfully find our famous four somebody they could see themselves isolating with?

The celebrities will be set up on a series of dates, either remotely from home, or outdoors adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Upon joining the virtual dating agency TOWIE heart-throb Pete Wicks said “I’m excited to be heading back to the agency. Anna, Paul and Tom give great advice, and I’m looking forward to getting a slightly different Celebs Go Dating experience this time around. Lockdown has really made me realise that I am ready to have someone to share my time with, instead of just my dogs! Hopefully this time I can leave the agency with a girl on my arm, not another Sam Thompson!”

Geordie Shore lass Chloe Ferry said “I am absolutely buzzing to join the agency! So many of my friends have been through the Celebs Go Dating process and absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to see what advice the agents can give me, and if they can help me find me a worldie.”

Professional rugby player and Celebrity XFactor star Levi Davis said “After being single since I was 18, I am so ready to meet somebody I can hopefully spark a romance with. I’ve heard great things about the agency, and that Anna, Paul and Tom give sound advice. I’m the biggest overthinker in the world, so looking forward to seeing what advice the agents can give me. I can’t wait to see what happens!”

Love Island favourite Shaughna Phillips said “I’m so excited to join the Celebs Go Virtual Dating agency, I’m feeling hopeful that the experience won’t be as bad as my previous dating fails! I’m really looking forward to learning more about myself, and hopefully becoming a pro-dater. I just can’t wait to see who the agents set me up with, hopefully they might open my eyes to more guys who might tickle my fancy!”

Tune in to E4 every Monday at 10pm from 27th July, to see if the agency manages to match the ‘perfect pair’ on Celebs Go Virtual Dating!

Channel 4 commissions Girl Powered: The Spice Girls

Channel 4 has commissioned Girl Powered:The Spice Girls (w/t), a documentary series from 72 Films.

Using hundreds of hours of archive footage and revealing interviews, the series tells the complete story of the best-selling girl band of all time.

Starting from the group’s formation in the mid ‘90s amidst the backdrop of ‘ladette culture’, right through to the recent world tour during the time of the #metoo movement, this series examines how modern feminism has evolved through the life story and events that have surrounded the five members of the group.

Alisa Pomeroy, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor Documentaries said: “The idea of using the story of the supremely popular and mould-breaking Spice Girls to make a multi-layered social history series was too good to pass up. The Spice Girls mirrored and influenced a generation of women and now, nearly 30 years since their formation, their story sheds light on the coming of age of modern feminism in ways we can fully appreciate for the first time.”

The series will be made by the directing team behind the multi award winning Jade: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain, Rob Coldstream and Clare Cameron.

Clare Cameron, Series Editor 72 Films added: “Little did I know when I saw them perform live in Sheffield as a teenager, that I’d have the opportunity to make a series about one of the most iconic pop groups of our time and their impact on young women all over the world.   Following the incredible stories of the band members is an exciting way of exploring the changing story of feminism over the last 25 years."

Girl Powered:The Spice Girls (w/t) was commissioned for Channel 4 by Alisa Pomeroy, Commissioning Editor, Documentaries.  For 72 Films, Rob Coldstream will be the Executive Producer, and Clare Cameron Series Editor.

Channel 4 commissions Damilola: The Boy Next Door

To mark the 20th anniversary of Damilola Taylor’s violent murder on the North Peckham Estate, Channel 4 has commissioned 1x60 mins  documentary from Acme Films.  This poignant and reflective film will be presented by Yinka Bokinni DJ, radio presenter, writer and former resident of the estate and childhood friend of Damilola.

The horrendous and lonely death of ten-year-old Damilola Taylor in the dank stairwell of an estate in Peckham in November 2000 stunned the nation. It seemed to encapsulate a nation mired in moral crisis and a society that was fundamentally broken.

In the aftermath of Damilola’s death, the estate was demolished and the families dispersed. Now, twenty years on, Yinka Bokinni explores the devastating impact Damilola’s death had on her community, her area, and the lives of almost everyone she knew, confronting for the first time the impact of a tragic event which the children from the area have never felt able to discuss.

In this film, Yinka will attempt to reconcile the two versions of her past and try to understand how the warm, loving and happy community she remembers so fondly from her childhood was presented in the media as a crime-ridden “sink estate” that was somehow to blame for the tragic loss of a young life.

The “notorious” North Peckham Estate, once hailed as the finest estate in the whole of Europe had been shorthand for gangs, drugs and violence since the 1980s. But there was another side to life there. For the families who lived there, the North Peckham Estate was home to a warm and loving community.

Fozia Khan, Commissioning Editor, Documentaries said; “This deeply personal and important film, authored by Yinka Bokinni, makes us look at a story we think we know with fresh eyes. Although Damilola Taylor died 20 years ago, the questions Yinka asks and reflects on in the film have never felt more timely.”

Yinka Bokinni added; “ I've never spoken about the murder of my childhood friend until now, I have lived my life with so many questions about what happened and why it happened in the place that I called home. To finally be telling the story feels both therapeutic and scary but I am ready to share this side of the story. Hopefully everyone will get to know the real Damilola, as he lived, a bit better.”

Bears About The House: Q&A with Giles Clark

Conservationist Giles Clark is embarking on his biggest mission to date: taking on the illegal wildlife trade and helping to build a pioneering new bear sanctuary in Laos, Southeast Asia.

How did this series come about?
Matt Hunt (the CEO of Free The Bears) and I have a longstanding, 15-year friendship, and we'd talked about the possibility of me assisting him and the organisation on numerous occasions.

I hadn't been in a position to take up the offer until last year, but with the expansion of operations in Laos I took up the role of technical advisor for a 12-month period. I discussed filming my time at the sanctuary with the Natural History Unit, and what that journey would involve - for both myself and the bears.

What was your role at the sanctuary?
I was there as a technical advisor to help raise the skills and capacity of the sanctuary staff, using my experience of animal husbandry and welfare. I helped oversee the construction of new animal facilities as well as hand-rearing young and vulnerable bear cubs that needed specialist care. We worked alongside the local and national authorities to build a working relationship that would support them in their efforts to enforce and implement measures for wildlife conservation.

Why did you decide to tun your attention to bears in south east Asia?
South east Asia has always been a special place for me. It has some of the most biodiverse terrestrial ecosystems in the world which is heavily under threat. The conservation pressures and challenges that bears face of habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as the demand for the wildlife trade, is similar for most endangered species. I felt that my skills and experience could really make a difference.

What challenges did you face hand rearing vulnerable sun and moon bear cubs?
Like all small mammals that would be completely reliant on their mother at such a young age, the first challenge is making sure they not only get enough food (milk) but also the right type. This involve hours of preparation then encouraging and coaxing, cleaning up etc. You must provide an environment that feels safe and secure, both physically and psychologically.

As they gain strength and confidence the challenge is then providing them with stimulation and opportunities to allow the development and honing of their skills to become a bear. As they grow in the wild, sun and moon bears will eat hundreds of different type of food, which presents unique challenges. This means bears have complex brains and are very intelligent.

Can you tell us a bit more about the bears that are rescued and are looked after at the Sanctuary?
All the bears at the sanctuary are rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, which means they would have been born in the wild and many of them would have been present when their mothers were killed.

The cubs are then traded and kept as exotic pets, nearly always in very poor conditions. We've rescued numerous bears from these circumstances who have been kept in cages that are just a few square metres, without any stimulation or a good diet. Other bears have been rescued from the 'bear bile' trade, where the animals are kept in barbaric conditions and the bile from their gall bladder is harvested for use in traditional Chinese medicines.

Your dedication and commitment to wildlife and its protection is second to none. How does it feel like when something as horrible as the theft of bear cubs Jane and David, who we meet in the documentary, happens?
There is no way to put into words the devastation the whole team and I felt after the theft of David and Jane, and we hope that someday we will receive information that leads to their rescue again.

We're confident that the increased security measures at the sanctuary will prevent another situation like this in the future, but the incident highlights the how ruthless these individuals are, and the lengths that organised criminal networks will go to.

We'll continue to work with partners - including the Laos government - in the fight to protect and rescue bears. Since the loss of David and Jane we've rescued nearly a further 20 bears in Laos, half of which are cubs.

What do you hope viewers will take away from this programme?
I hope that the programme engages the audience to think about the way in which humanity interacts with natural world. Mary (and all the other bears and wildlife) is an ambassador, not only for her wild counterparts but for conservation in general. It's imperative that we demonstrate an understanding, kindness and compassion for the natural world and its wildlife. Bears are charismatic and endearing, they are the perfect flagship species for combatting the wildlife trade and encouraging support for conservation.

A last thought on moon and sun bears in the wild and their future……
Whilst I was based and working in Laos, we not only rescued bears but dozens of other animals from the wildlife trade. One of the great privileges I have had is to return some of these back to the wild. I can’t wait for the day when this will be possible with at least some of the bears that will be rescued in the future. Bears are vital in the their ecosystem and we owe it to them to make sure they have a future in the wild, where they belong.
