Filthy Business from Common Story follows friends Cam and Oli as they try to grow their new waste management business.

The partners in grime started up when they were furloughed, never expecting the work would take off as it has. They soon realised that if they graft hard, there is money to be made from hopping into hoarder’s houses or cleaning out grubby garages.

But now they are facing year two and working out how to grow the company, keep their friendship on track, whilst still finding time for love and life.

Every job is a journey of discovery and with big characters like Cam and Oli, this entertaining film provides a fresh take on being your own boss.

Fiona Campbell, Controller BBC Three, says: “Regional representation that reflects the reality of young lives across the UK is a key priority for BBC Three and these titles fully deliver on that. This scheme was initially for two single documentaries but the quality of ideas was so high we decided to commission three titles and made one a series.”

Aisling O’Connor, Head of Commissioning for BBC England, says: “BBC England TV Commissioning is committed to working closely with BBC Three to represent the lives of young people in England. We are also keen to support the indie sector in the West Midlands as part of the BBC’s plans for the region. We were so impressed with the ideas and proposals that came through as a result of this scheme and we look forward to bringing these great stories to the audience.’
