BBC Studioworks will host ITV’s Saturday Night Takeaway from Studio TC1.
From 22nd February, the 10,800 sq. ft. studio will house the show’s 16th series using an 11-camera configuration, with 10 additional exterior cameras on the Television Centre forecourt for week one.
BBC Studioworks will also provide post production services, comprising four Avid Symphony suites and a Pro Tools dubbing suite.
In advance of each of the weekly Saturday night broadcasts, rushes will be ingested, edited, mixed and reviewed for multiple live show features.
TC1 features configurable seating for 500 audience members, with BBC Studioworks providing studio management, engineering, electricians and scenic staff.
BBC Studioworks commercial manager Meryl McLaren said: “Saturday Night Takeaway is an entertainment extravaganza and is shiny floor TV at its best.
“We’re delighted it’s chosen our Television Centre facility is its new home. We excel at fun, fast and ambitious productions and look forward to partnering with the team to bring the show back to the nation’s TV screens.”
