Rockerdale Studios, the digital first, purpose-driven comedy content producer, announces that a second series of Rosie Jones-fronted format Mission: Accessible has been commissioned by Channel 4’s digital commissioning team, in partnership with Visit Britain.
The first series, which saw Rosie on a mission to help people plan fun-filled accessible adventures around the UK, was one of the first social media brand-funded partnership series for Channel 4.
This second series, is a three-part mid-form series and will once again see Rosie team up with fellow comedians, this time on the hunt for the UK’s most accessible cities. Rosie will be joined by Ashley Storrie, Big Zuu, and Mike Wozniak, as they explore Cambridge, Manchester and London.
Laura Marks, Channel 4 Digital Commissioner said: “Mission Accessible series one was hugely popular, so we’re so pleased to be bringing it back for another series and this time we take on some of the UK’s most accessible cities. We’re so proud of the humour and heart with which Rosie approaches each activity and each contributor’s specific accessibility needs, she really is a star talent that we love working with. We know this show really resonates with our audiences and responds to the issues that many of them face when looking for the perfect staycation. Rosie challenges the conventional idea of what an accessible holiday can be and brings the audience along with her.”
Separately, Rockerdale Studios is also in production with a brand-new short form series commissioned by Channel 4, which will see a variety of high-profile comedians face the camera, and each other, in a series of fun and messy eating challenges. Comedians v Food (w/t) is a Channel 4 digital original, commissioned by Channel 4 Digital Commissioning Executive, Joe Churchill and produced for multiple platforms and social channels.
