UK pubcaster Channel 4 and Chorleywood-based Freeform Productions are teaming up for a series featuring Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker and spotlighting families who have taken the plunge to open, or already run, their own historic hotels across Britain.

Escape to the Manor Hotel (20 x 60 minutes; w/t) will go behind the scenes of several historic UK hotels to meet those who are operating them. Such hosts include twin brothers on the verge of revamping a 19th-century property into an Italian inspired B&B, and a couple who are opening the doors to their 18th-century boutique hotel.

Escape to the Manor Hotel was commissioned by Channel 4 head of daytime, David Sayer. It is executive produced by Michelle Heeley.
