Sky One Orders Musical Holiday Special


CC-Lab has been commissioned to produce It’s Christmas Live, a holiday concert filmed at the Royal Albert Hall, for Sky One in the U.K.

It’s Christmas Live will see a variety of artists, including Alexander Armstrong, Fleur East, Holly Johnson, Jona Lewie, Marc Almond, Melanie C, Nadine Coyle, Ricky Wilson, Shakin’ Stevens, Tom Chaplin and The Vamps, perform their favorite holiday songs. The 90-minute Ultra HD special will be hosted by comedian/musician Jason Manford. It is slated to air on Sky One and Sky Arts during the Christmas season.

Justin Rees, executive producer at CC-Lab, said: “Once again we’re bringing a live event in UHD to Sky and we’re extra pleased that it’s something that’s never been done before. We’ve plugged our wealth of experience in music live events and our massive black book of contacts to bring together an extravaganza of everyone’s favorite Christmas hits performed by top talent.”
