Banijay Group-owned Wonder (formerly 7 Wonder) has been commissioned by BBC3 for two new factual series.

In Work It, (pictured; 4 x 15 minutes) three fitness instructors, who have overcome incredible odds, will team up with people in an inclusion-focused gym. Over the course of the series, the instructors will meet people who have gone through a variety of experiences, such as grief, body-image issues and low self-esteem. Given unique fitness plans, the instructors will aim to help people love to exercise.

Meanwhile, Deadstock (4 x 15 minutes) will look at the huge sums of money that can be made from the most unusual items and charity shop digs. Two savvy “Resellers” will set up the Deadstock warehouse where they will provide free authentications and valuations, and reveal the stories of how people came to own the unusual items.

Work It and Deadstock will be distributed globally by Banijay Rights.

Both series were commissioned by Nasfim Haque, commissioning editor, BBC3, with Sarah Trigg executive producing for Wonder.
