UK network BBC3 has commissioned Dragonfly Film and Television Productions to make Kill It, Cut It, Use It, a five-part spin-off of its Kill It, Cook It, Eat It series.
The spin-off sees presenter Julia Bradbury joined by young consumers who are keen to learn about the animal origins of the things they use each day, such as sheep parts hidden in bars of soap.
The show promises to follow the transformation of each leftover body part “all the way from the abattoir to the shop floor.”
The spin-off was ordered by BBC3 commissioning editor Harry Lansdown and commissioning executive Lisa Edwards, and will air later this month. Dragonfly’s Mark Roberts is the executive producer and Clare Mottershead is the series producer.
Roberts said: “How many people know that there is sheep in their shampoo or cows in their crockery? The extraordinary animal ingredients found in everyday products are jaw-dropping.
“Discovering that we brush our hair with pigs, wear fish on our feet and play tennis with cows will make everyone look differently at their shopping basket.”
