dock10 to host more Channel 4 entertainment pilots
Channel 4 is set to return to dock10 later this year to pilot a number of entertainment shows.
The broadcaster has booked studio space again at dock10 this autumn following an innovative run-through programme last year which Channel 4 head of entertainment Phil Harris introduced to develop ideas in an affordable and sustainable way from a range of independent production companies from around the country.
As part of the initiative, the broadcaster tested seven primetime quiz ideas in a short window at dock10 last year with two ideas being commissioned for full series.
One of them, Quizness fronted by comedian Tom Allen and produced by CPL Productions, was also recently filmed at dock10.
Following the success of the debut piloting scheme, the broadcaster is funding another series of run-throughs at dock10, focused on panel shows.
The non-TX testers are designed to be slicker than an office run-through but cheaper and simpler to make than a traditional full pilot.
Pier Eight, The Lowry’s stylish restaurant and bar, have launched their Waterside Terrace alongside an all new bar menu, creating the perfect summer lunchtime spot overlooking Manchester Ship Canal.
Love Conquers All and Penelope’s Kitchen owner Carla Taylor is increasing her food offering at MediaCityUK, and opening a new eatery called Penelope’s Deli, which is located at the heart of the creative and digital destination.
