UK market gets a boost as new TV series opens up
03 February 2012 14:14
The UK’s leading overseas property television series, Channel 4’s “A Place in the Sun,” is about to screen its first new programmes for four years.
The broadcasts start on Monday 6th February, and run daily for 20 days with a further 60 additional episodes going straight into production immediately after the new series ends.
A Place in the Sun Live managing director Andy Bridge has welcomed the impetus the new programmes should bring to the market.
“It’s a huge commission from Channel 4, there are three production teams on the road at the moment in the Caribbean, Florida and Spain to get the new programmes made in time,” he told OPP this week.
“This is the first post-recession filming that A Place in the Sun has done and presents an opportunity to present bargain stock to viewers and hopefully get them excited in overseas property once again.”
Speaking exclusively to OPP, Bridge added: “It won’t transform the UK market overnight, but it is a huge boost.”
Established hosts Jonnie and Jasmine are presenting their own programmes, and new presenter Laura Hamilton kicks off the series which will be shown on daytime TV for its first run. Repeat showings in the evening are expected to follow very quickly.
