Channel 4 has selected Fulwell 73 as the production partner for its live TV fundraiser Stand Up To Cancer following a tendered process.

Stand Up to Cancer was previously produced by Princess Productions, which is closing this year.

The Fulwell 73 team were recently joined by Suzi Aplin, who has been Executive Producer of Stand Up To Cancer for the last four years.

Stand Up To Cancer was launched as a joint fundraiser between C4 and Cancer Research UK in 2012. Channel 4 says it has already raised nearly £40m.  This year, Stand Up To Cancer became the first live telethon to win an RTS award and to be nominated for a BAFTA.

The event will next air in 2018.

Ed Havard, Channel 4’s Head of Entertainment and TV Events, said, “Fulwell produced a pitch for the 2018 show that was full of flair and ambition and we’re thrilled to be joining forces with one of the most talented teams in TV, who are always a joy to work with. Suzi Aplin has for many years been at the heart of Stand Up To Cancer’s success and she has produced award-winning shows that have raised millions of pounds, so it’s especially exciting that she will be back in charge working with Gabe Turner and the rest of the Fulwell operation.”

Gabe Turner, Partner at Fulwell 73, said, “We are honoured and excited to have been given such a tremendous opportunity.”

North London based indie Fulwell 73 recent releases include I Am Bolt (a sports documentary released globally by Universal), The Class of 92 (also for Universal), and the One Direction 3D: This is Us. They also co-produce The Late Late Show with James Corden in the US.
