Channel 5′s British free-to-air channel 5Star has commissioned London-based factual indie Zeppelin Films for a new two-part series, Marrying My Sugardaddy.

The tentatively titled series will follow couples who have a large age gap and are together for financial reasons as they plan their wedding.

Zeppelin Films is currently in production on Marrying My Sugardaddy, and on its returning 5Star commission, Rich Kids Go Homeless (pictured).

Channel 5 commissioner Denise Seneviratne has ordered another six-hour season of Rich Kids Go Homeless, in which a wealthy young person lives on the streets with nothing but a sleeping bag. The privileged kid has negative views on homelessness, and the show aims to give them an eye-opening experience.

The first seas aired on April of last year.

Formed one year ago by former BBC commissioning editor and Love Productions executive, Zeppelin’s managing director Elliot Reed serves as executive producer on both series.
