dock10 has extended its contract with ITV Studios for a further three years, meaning the TV facility will continue to support ITV’s productions until 2021.
ITV Studios programmes produced at dock10’s Manchester facility include Judge Rinder, Jeremy Kyle, Countdown and University Challenge.
Mark Senior, CEO of dock10, said: “Since signing the original contract in 2013, dock10’s relationship with ITV Studios has gone from strength to strength. Our ability to offer world class facilities makes us an obvious choice for making programmes outside of London and the quality of the shows ITV Studios make here speak for themselves.
“As well as serving productions based on site we are delighted to regularly welcome ITV teams from around the UK making great shows such as The Voice and we look forward to supporting their work for many years to come.”
Sally Debonnaire, ITV Studios director of production, added: “ITV has long had a production presence in Manchester which we continue to build on and so we are understandably delighted to be extending our relationship with dock10.
“By working with dock10 we not only benefit from superb facilities specifically designed for audience shows like ours, but by filming outside of London, it also allows us to attract a broader audience profile.”
