BBC2 preps The Finest in the Deli: Yorkshire’s Choice

BBC2 will offer amateur food producers across the UK the chance to promote and sell their products in a new series set in Northern England’s Yorkshire Dales.

Produced by Studio Lambert The Finest in the Deli: Yorkshire’s Choice (w/t),  will have foodmakers showcase their products to real customers and expert judges, attempting to convince them that their product deserves to be on shelves. ,

By the end of the 8 x 60-minute series, a shop will be filled with the seven winning products from seven different categories. The public will help the judges decide which producer and product are the best overall.

Hosted by two-Michelin starred chef and Tom Kerridge, the judges include food writer and restaurateur Nisha Katona and artisan expert, Alison Swan Parente. The duo will assess whether the producers’ creations have what it takes to sustain a profitable business.

Back2back Productions to produce series on the science of stunts

UK-based indie prodco Back2back Productions is exploring the world of stunts in the new series Stunt Science.

The series features stories and clips of stunts, pranks and home experiments caught on camera. The series then breaks down the most shocking and surprising maneuvers, explaining in detail how the tricks were done. The show will then track down those at the center of the stunts to find out what they were thinking – or not.

The 10 x 60-minute program will be known as Stunt Science by Viasat World, and Outrageous Stunts! by Spike UK. The series is being distributed by Hat Trick International.
