BBC1 has commissioned London-headquartered indie Spun Gold TV for a one-off program set in a bustling and popular Liverpool hotel.

A Very Northern Hotel (w/t) reveals the secret life of The Shankly Hotel, which unlike many other big hotels, has party rooms on the top floor. The enormous, individually-themed communal rooms include multiple beds, dance floors, bars, Jacuzzis and even a swimming pool. The show will follow the action as the staff and new general manager at The Shankly work to cater every request and ensure guests don’t collide and spoil each other’s special occasion.

“We hope this film set in the Shankly hotel will tell us something about aspiration in Britain today, by looking at how families from every walk of life choose to celebrate and mark the biggest events of their lives,” said Clare Sillery, head of commissioning, documentaries, in a statement. 

A Very Northern Hotel (w/t) is produced and directed by Kate Siney. The program is executive produced by Spun Gold head of factual Bridget Boseley and commissioned by Emily Smith.

The program is being distributed internationally by all3media International.

A Very Northern Hotel is set to premiere Spring 2019.
