The BBC has ordered a second 10×45 run of Alan Carr’s Picture Slam from Triple Brew Media for BBC One later this year.

The first series of Alan Carr’s Picture Slam averaged 3.3 million viewers across its eight-episode run, and saw its strongest audience in the penultimate episode, which averaged 4.6 million, making this the biggest Entertainment launch on the BBC last year and the second biggest new Entertainment launch across the market in 2023.

Alan Carr says: “I am over the moon that Picture Slam is coming back, I love the show so much and I’m bowled over by how popular it’s become. It’s manic, a little bit random and full of fun – it’s like if I was a quiz show!!! Let’s do it all over again!”

Ed De Burgh and Ben Shephard, Executive Producers for Triple Brew Media say “Picture Slam’s fast-paced, play along nature combined with Alan’s unique blend of wit and humour, captivated audiences last year. We can’t wait to get back into the studio and bring more Picture Slam to everyone!”

Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment at the BBC adds: “With even more episodes to look forward to in the second series and our funny host Alan Carr at the helm, Picture Slam is the perfect teatime treat that the whole family can play along with!”

Alan Carr’s Picture Slam will be filmed at Pacific Quay in Glasgow.

Picture Slam (10×45’) is made by Triple Brew Media, part of All3Media’s Objective Media Group and was commissioned by Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment at the BBC. The Executive Producers are Julie Kelling, Ed De Burgh and Ben Shephard for Triple Brew Media and Toby Stevens for OMG Scotland. Adeel Amini is the Series Producer. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Neil McCallum. The series will be distributed by All3media international.
