BriteSpark Lands Trio of Channel 5 Commissions to Be Repped by TCB


BriteSpark Films has been commissioned for three new programs on Channel 5—The World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys, How to Stop Your Nuisance Calls and a sixth season of Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords—all of which are represented by TCB Media Rights.

The World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys is six-part documentary series that tells the stories of six epic train journeys through the characters who travel, work and live near them. It is narrated by Bill Nighy.

How to Stop Your Nuisance Calls will investigate the scourge of cold-calling and examine the new robo-technology, which is exacerbating the existing problem.

Twelve new episodes have been ordered for Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords, which looks at the dark side of Britain’s overstrained rental market.

BriteSpark Films’ director of programs, Tom Porter, said: “We’re very excited to have secured these contrasting commissions from Channel 5. They demonstrate BriteSpark’s focus on producing a wide-ranging factual slate.’’

Channel 5’s Daniel Pearl added: “We are delighted to recommission the hit series Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords. It remains almost unique in British TV in exploring the harsh realities of the rental housing market. How to Stop Your Nuisance Calls will delve into an issue affecting hundreds of thousands of people. The World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys is a beautiful and indulgent treat, taking our viewers to places of truly outstanding natural beauty.”
