Brown Bob Productions has been commissioned by BBC Daytime in the UK to produce a third season of ‘Fraud Squad’, the series that follows investigations tracking down criminals who steal from the public purse.

‘Fraud Squad: Inside the Council’ (working title) follows real-life stories of frauds across dozens of UK local councils, as told by investigators who caught the criminals.

Presented by Michelle Ackerley, this 10 x 45’ series looks at frauds ranging from council officers flogging blue badges for disabled drivers on the black market or putting family holidays on the council credit card, all the way up to entire councils being infiltrated by organised crime groups.

This is the latest instalment of Brown Bob’s BBC1 ‘Fraud Squad’ series, following ‘Fraud Squad: The Hunt’ (season two), and ‘Fraud Squad: NHS’ (season one). The show’s Executive Producer is Brown Bob Productions’ Jacqueline Hewer while the BBC Commissioning Editor is Lindsay Bradbury. Blue Ant International handles distribution for all three seasons globally.
