After launching in March 2023 Oliver Wright’s new label under Objective Media Group, an All3Media Company, has confirmed its name – Coming Up Roses.

Following the new and returning commissions announced in May, Coming Up Roses can now add new four-part commission, Malta: The Jewel of the Med, as well as the fourth series of Secrets of the Royal Palaces to its roster.

Malta: The Jewel of the Med will “”celebrate the life, culture, and beauty of one of Europe’s most astonishing countries. The 4×60 observational documentary for Channel 5 will “explore every aspect of Malta and meet the colourful characters — both British and Maltese — who live there.”

Secrets of the Royal Palaces returns with an order of 4×60 new episodes and 4×60 reversions. Back with new stories, from revelations concerning the Queen’s funeral and Charles’s coronation to ancient Royal dramas including the truth behind the burial of William the Conqueror and the suspicious death of King Henry the Sixth. In a new strand, the series will also explore the secrets and scandals of Royal visits to foreign Royal Palaces from Versailles to the Imperial Palaces Tokyo.

Coming Up Roses comprises Wright, Executive Producer Harriet Scott, and Production Executive Andrew Nelson.

Oliver Wright said: “Coming Up Roses has had a wonderful start with an incredible five commissions in as many months – we really couldn’t think of a better name to encapsulate the drive, energy, passion and positive nature of our teams and the wonderful series they create.”

Malta: The Jewel of the Med was commissioned for Channel 5 by Kate Ansell, with Susan Crook serving as series producer. Secrets of the Royal Palaces was commissioned by Adrian Padmore and Series Producer is Ben Kelly. Oliver Wright, Harriet Scott, and Luke McLaughlin will serve as Executive Producers across the new commissions with Andrew Nelson as Production Executive across both.

All series will be distributed by All3Media International.
