London-based prodco Lucky Day Productions has several commissions on the way for UK broadcasters in the year ahead, including a new property format, Secret Location, for Channel 4 (C4) and a second series of popular art format Show Me the Monet for BBC2.

In Secret Location (20 x 60 minutes), house hunters are spirited off to potential new homes in a van with its windows blackened, completely unaware of what neighborhood the dwelling is part of. As a result, participants judge the homes solely on their own merits.

It will air on C4 in early 2012 and will be series produced by Gerry Costello, with Damon Pattison and Helen Nightingale as executive producers. It’s the second recent commission from C4, with dating format Love Shaft (6 x 30 minutes) also set to air early in 2012 on E4.

Elsewhere, Show Me the Monet (15 x 45 minutes) will come to BBC2′s daytime schedule in 2012 and offer more aspiring artists the opportunity to showcase and sell their works. Those interested can apply for casting here.

Show Me the Monet will be series produced by Alison Kreps and executive produced by Damon Pattison for Lucky Day, and Pam Cavannagh for BBC.

The series join another renewed program from the Zodiak Media Group-owned prodco, BBC children’s game show School of Silence (20 x 30 minutes), produced out of Scotland.
