HGTV picks up Christina on the Coast episodes 

Discovery-owned home improvement net HGTV has picked up 13 new episodes of docuseries Christina on the Coast, starring real estate investor and TV personality Christina Anstead (pictured).

The sophomore season will spotlight the former Flip or Flop star’s evolving personal and professional life. The Pie Town Productions-made series first aired in May.

A premiere date for season two has yet to be set.

“HGTV knew Christina on the Coast would be a winner and the series absolutely delivered,” Jane Latman, HGTV president, said in a statement. “In season two, we will join Christina as she grows her design business and navigates relationships with her friends and family, including her husband and new baby.”

Northern Docs films to debut on BBC

Films from budding Northern England doc makers are slated to air this week on BBC3.

The set of films were selected by the Northern Docs organization as part of a BBC-backed pilot talent development scheme to support filmmaking in the region.

Airing Friday (Aug. 16), the documentaries include: Car Girls, the story of young women in Northern England who have found a sense of belonging in the modified car scene, from Manchester-based Hannah Blackwell; and Chicken Man, about a young man who breeds fancy fowl that compete at poultry events, from Newcastle-based Danielle Giddins.

Launched in 2018, the scheme has also received support from Dock 10 at Media City UK as well as the University of Bolton, where Northern Docs is based. The initiative was developed by Manchester filmmaker Mike Todd.
