Mothership Productions have been commissioned by Channel 4 to make a 6x60 format exploring the global obesity crisis.
This warm – but shocking - series will involve Brits who want to lose weight travelling the world to better understand the relationship between food, culture and body size, and in the process see if they can lose weight along the way.
Alisa Pomeroy, Head of Documentaries said: “Global obesity is one of the unseen world-wide crises of our time, and we are delighted to be working with Mothership on their first commission for Documentaries, tackling such an important topic.”
Gilly Greenslade, Director of Programmes at Mothership Productions Ltd said of the show, “We are really excited to be working with the c4 docs dept on a show that takes a fresh and revealing approach to a really big subject all over the world”
Around The World In 80 Weighs begins Tuesday 16th January at 9pm on Channel 4.
