The BBC has commissioned 14 hours of peaktime factual programming from London-based indie Outline Productions.
BBC1 will air So You Think You Can Drive (working title), a one-off one-hour show fronted by Dom Littlewood and Cherry Healey that aims to transform the driving habits of two motorists who put themselves and others at risk.
Mandy Thomson is the series producer with Outline’s creative director, Helen Veale, and director of programmes, Bridget Boseley, executive producing alongside Tom Edwards from the BBC.
BBC2, meanwhile, will air a follow-up to Tom Kerridge’s Proper Pub Food, with the Michelin-star chef fronting Tom Kerridge’s Best Ever Dishes (6×30’). The new series will focus on Kerridge producing versions of classic British dishes.
The director of the series is Sarah Myland while Tanya Hottlieb and Sally Wingate are the series producers. Bridget Boseley and BBC commissioning editor Lindsay Bradbury will exec produce.
BBC2 has also greenlit a second season of Great British Garden Revival. The latest 10×60’ run will see some of the country’s most recognised gardeners reviving the fortunes of neglected spring and early summer flowering plants.
All three series are being distributed internationally by Hat Trick International.
