UK net ITV has tapped its factual indie Shiver to produce a workplace makeover series called Star Treatment, hosted by Loose Women‘s Jane McDonald (pictured).

Airing this summer on ITV Daytime, the 15 x 60-minute series sees McDonald and a style team touring UK workplaces, including offices, factories, clubs and institutions, to find hard-working teams of workers that have been nominated by their bosses.

The workers receive a full makeover from a stylist and hair and make-up artist, as the boss works with a chef to prepare a gourmet meal to surprise their best employees.

Star Treatment was commissioned by Diana Howie for ITV Daytime and will be series produced by Julie Bradshaw and executive produced by Andrew Nicholson for Shiver. The format will be distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

“Jane McDonald brings her unique brand of Northern warmth to Star Treatment, which gives Britain’s bosses the chance to reward their most deserving workplace stars with a luxurious makeover and lavish meal,” said Nicholson. “Packed full of astonishing transformations, great food and heart-warming stories, we hope the show will be enjoyed by viewers around the country.”
