Channel 4 has commissioned a one-off documentary special from Mentorn Media, which will see Radio 1 regular Chris Stark attempt to meet his ultimate bucket list of celebrities in a film directed by Matt Rudge.

Stark has become infamous for his unorthodox interview with Hollywood A-lister Mila Kunis for BBC Radio 1’s The Scott Mills Show. His questioning went viral on YouTube and garnered over 12 million views. (See below)

Commissioned by Emma Cooper this one-hour doc will follow Stark as he takes the first steps  to meet the 100 famous faces that he wants to get to know better, from A-list superstars to childhood crushes, ageing action heroes and world leaders, whether he can actually meet them or not is an unknown.

Mentorn Media’s creative director Mark Roberts, said: “Chris is someone whose fame comes from the radio and the web – we are delighted to be bringing him to TV.”

Emma Cooper, commissioning editor at Channel 4 said: “I think Chris has a unique ability to get close to celebrity in a way that surprises and engages the audience and generates new insights about them as people rather than ‘stars’.”

Cooper will be speaking about opportunites for film makers at the Single Film session at the Televisual Factual Festival this week. To find out more, go to the Festival website.
