UK pubcaster BBC1 is to take an inside look at fast-food chain KFC, with a three-part doc series being produced by Wild Pictures.

Inside KFC (3 x 60 minutes) promises “a unique, top-to-bottom look” inside the fried chicken empire, according to the network. The series will paint “a multi-layered portrait… meeting the many colorful characters working there – from the boardroom to the restaurant chef.”

The series will examine how the chain ensures there is enough chicken to meet the demands of its many thousands of daily customers, while also looking at where the chicken comes from, and the journey it takes before reaching the consumer.

In a statement, BBC1 controller Charlotte Moore said: “At a time when our entire nation seems to be obsessed by food, the series will gain unprecedented and surprising access to a global super brand that, despite being on almost every high street up and down the country, we seemingly know very little about.”

Paul Hamann serves as the exec producer for Wild Pictures, with Maxine Watson being the EP at the BBC. The series was commissioned by Emma Willis, the head of BBC documentary commissioning.
