69 x 30’, CBBC
One of the few live kids series on-air and the only music show produced for them.
Fronted by Cel Spellman (Cold Feet, Waterloo Road), the series featured our world-famous lipdubs and music videos featuring our audience.
We set out to make the charts a destination again – and having moved the show from Sunday to a primetime audience on a Friday evening, we resurrected the excitement of hearing the Number 1 announced live each week.
A team of five produced and directed the show (all of them owning a 16-25 Young Persons Railcard), and they wrote, shot, edited, vlogged, tweeted, choreographed, production managed and sound mixed the entire show each week.
Add to that, a huge online presence – also produced by the same team of five, providing interactive content to the CBBC website, YouTube channel and our own Twitter feed (a first for an indie CBBC commission) every day.
We received a second commission at the start of 2016 taking the total number of episodes to 69.
