Two TV Companies Looking For Prospective B&Bers
I’ve been contacted by a couple of TV production companies who are looking to help / follow potential B&Bers.
Ricochet who are making a new programme for Channel 5 provisionally called “To B&B the Best” and Twofour who are looking to create a Grand Designs type of programme based on B&Bs.
The details are below. Please contact the companies direct if you’re interested.
“As discussed on the phone I’m a Researcher at TV Production Company Ricochet, the makers of Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped, Channel 5’s Cowboy Builders and Bodge jobs and BBC’s Family Finders and Michel Roux’s Service. We are making a new a 35-part series for Channel 5 daytime To B&B The Best (provisional working title) about homeowners who are hoping to make some cash from their spare rooms. In each episode, our award-winning B&B expert will visit a different homeowner who has either just started or is about to start opening up their own home to paying guests. With her characteristic no-nonsense approach and years of experience, she’ll take a good look around their house and what they’re planning to do, and give them advice, guidance and some help with makeover to help them be the best they can be.
Applications can be received at BandB@ricochet.co.uk or through 01273224829. I have attached a leaflet with this information.”
The 2nd request is from Twofour
My name’s Kat, I’m a researcher at Twofour, a television production company based in the UK – http://www.twofour.co.uk/
“The series will be focusing on individuals who are undergoing renovation work on what will become future accommodation. This will range from boutique hotels, B&B and guest houses to larger, more ambitious projects. We will follow the journeys of these projects, from renovation to opening – in a similar vein to UK Channel 4 series Grand Designs.
We are looking for couples & families who are renovating/refurbishing a property to become a new hotel/guest house/B&B etc. I wondered if you are aware of anyone that is about to or currently undertaking a project for the first time, either in the UK or Europe? We are interested in people who are no more than 50% of the way through their project, planning to open as a functional premises by the Summer 2016. The focus will be on individual stories to follow, rather than big named chains. Kind
