BBC Studios and Post Production is providing full studio facilities and production support at Elstree Studios for a number of entertainment shows from Talkback (part of FremantleMedia UK). Taking up residency in Elstree Stage 9 from September is Talkback’s Celebrity Juice for ITV2, Never Mind the Buzzcocks for BBC Two and Sweat the Small Stuff for BBC Three.
BBC S&PP’s 7,550sqft Stage 9 will host all three productions, handling quick set builds, set rotations and bespoke technical set-ups for each show.
The productions galleries at Stage 9 have been recently refurbished, with a full range of greenrooms, dressing rooms and multi-purpose production offices.
“We’re delighted to be working with Talkback again and to be hosting their fantastic catalogue of shows,” said Meryl McLaren, Commercial Manager at BBC Studios and Post Production. “Because they are bringing multiple programmes to us at Elstree and using smart scheduling, we’ve been able to work with them to ensure the efficient turnaround of Stage 9.”
Talkback’s Celebrity Juice, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Sweat the Small Stuff will start airing later this year.
