BB2 has commissioned Remarkable Television to make an 8×60’ property series Watch This Space (w/t), presented by Angela Scanlon, that will show homeowners how their houses could be transformed in virtual reality.
Each episode will feature two couples who disagree about the best design solutions for their homes. Architects Laura Clark and Robert Jamison will produce one design each and the homeowners will then be able to ‘step into’ and explore the designs in a VR space.
Kitty Walshe, joint Managing Director of Remarkable Television, said: “We are really excited about this original property format which is no average home build show. We are taking ordinary homes and offering extraordinary transformations based on the homeowners own budgets and we are using technology in a way that has never been seen on British television before. We have brilliant on-screen experts in architects Robert Jamison and Laura Clark, who we are delighted to be bringing to BBC Two and we are also looking forward to working with Angela Scanlon.”
Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, said: “This is a really exciting combination of game changing technology and a terrific makeover show. It promises to be the next great property series on BBC TWO.”
Watch This Space was commissioned by Patrick Holland, Channel Editor, BBC Two and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning for BBC Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Michael Jochnowitz. It is executive produced by Joff Wilson for Remarkable Television.
