Laura Whitmore takes on a series of controversial issues in immersive, investigative films for ITVX, which will see her using her journalism skills to reveal new insights on each subject.
In this brand new series for ITVX, viewers will see a new side of Laura as she travels within the UK and further afield to delve into subjects that fascinate her and have an impact on our lives.
Laura Whitmore says: “It’s a dream come true to have this platform and work with a brilliant team at ITV through this series of investigative films. Getting back to my journalistic roots, I hope we can shine a light on some really important topics and issues, and delve into a variety of serious and interesting real-life subjects.”
Commissioned by ITV’s Factual Entertainment department, ITV’s Controller of Factual Jo Clinton Davis explained: "We’re excited about the opportunity ITVX presents for us and with our commissioning we want to broaden the palette of factual in very different and surprising ways...
"Documentary box sets with directorial ambition, on a diverse range of subjects, lead our developing slate; alongside series from new factual talent, including Laura Whitmore Investigates, which we are delighted to announce...
"This is just the beginning of a range of new opportunities as the world of Factual opens up on ITVX, with much more to come.”
The first two investigations in the series will be produced by Rumpus Media. Executive Producer is Fintan Maguire.
