BBC Daytime and Early Peak has commissioned Robson Green’s Dirty Weekends (W/T), a 15 x 30’ co-production between North East based Rivers Meet Productions and Signpost Productions.
Set exclusively in the North East against the backdrop of some of the UK’s most stunning scenery, the series will see Robson and some of his famous friends get stuck into some good, clean fun, as he celebrates everything that’s great about the region.
BBC Commissioning Editor, Helen Munson, says: “I’m really pleased to announce this exciting new commission from my home county. There is so much talent here in the North East, both on and off screen and this series will absolutely reflect that. Robson is a firm favourite with the audience and I’m looking forward to seeing this wonderful series get underway.”
Robson Green says: “I’m over the moon that we’re going to be co-producing this great series for BBC Two with Signpost productions. This series will showcase the best the North East has to offer.”
Gareth Deighan Creative Director at Signpost, says: “We’re delighted to get filming this great series with Robson Green and friends, we want to make sure we’re contributing to putting the North East on the map.”
