Channel 5 has greenlit a feature length documentary from Firecracker Films called Britain’s Biggest Snorer (working title), which takes a humorous look at the phenomenon of snoring across the UK.
Firecracker said that already over 6,500 beleaguered Brits have contacted Firecracker to nominate a partner or loved one for the 90-minute documentary.
The show will unearth some of Britain’s loudest and biggest snorers with self-shot footage from partners from around the country, and will also explore the causes of and remedies for snoring with expert advice and facts for viewers to think about.
A team of experts will set out to help those sufferers with some of the most pioneering and peculiar treatments around. The final six snorers and their partners will attend a “snoring camp”, where they will be filmed, monitored, tired and tested. The programme will culminate in the crowning of the nation’s least coveted prize: Britain’s Biggest Snorer.
Britain’s Biggest Snorer will be distributed by Passion Distribution, also part of the Tinopolis group, and will be part of their slate of titles for MIPCOM 2019.
Britain’s Biggest Snorer (working title, 1×90’) is a Firecracker Films production for Channel 5. The executive producers for Firecracker are Jes Wilkins, chief creative officer, and Fed Ruiz, head of factual entertainment. Series producer is Helen Barker, and Seb Caldwell is the commissioner for Channel 5.
Wilkins said: “We want the nation to get behind this quest to find Britain’s loudest snorers. This 90 minute special promises to be both hilarious and genuinely revealing about the impact that snoring can have on health and on relationships. It is of course in no way inspired by the personal lives of either of the exec producers.”
