Sky is to start production on two studio-based entertainment shows; There’s Something About Movies and A League of Their Own.
There’s Something About Movies, produced by CPL Productions, is now onto its third series with Alan Carr as host once again with Jennifer Saunders and Michael Sheen returning as team captains. They’ll preside over film trivia, movie insights and the infamous re-enactments.
The upcoming 15th series of A League of Their Own will be the first in a new three series extension deal between Sky and production company CPL Productions. The show has been a stalwart in Sky’s entertainment portfolio over the past decade and one of the most popular shows on the Sky One.
Barbara Lee, Commissioning Editor at Sky said: ”We all need some joy in our lives so we are excited to start production on two of our customers’ most loved shows: A League of Their Own and There’s Something About Movies. We have worked extremely hard to ensure safety measures are in place to safeguard our guests and the people making the series. These are specifically tailored to the production needs and we are confident we will deliver two stellar shows for our viewers to enjoy.”
Last month, Sky restarted some scripted productions across Europe with Sky original Ich Und Die Anderen returning to production in Vienna and Sky Studios and Sagafilm co-production Sisterhood beginning shooting in Iceland. The learnings and insights from these productions have helped inform Sky’s plans to return to scripted production in the UK later this summer.
