Green Inc to Co-Produce 'The One Show' Shorts
23 Jul 2010 :
Belfast-based Green Inc and London indie CTVC have announced their first joint commission, namely nine short films for BBC1’s ‘The One Show’. The films will mark the first fruit of the indies’ formal joint venture, established last autumn. The companies will co-produce the films out of Northern Ireland but they will be filmed across the UK. Green Inc’s other new project ‘Glorious Gardens’ will start broadcasting next Monday.

One of the ideas, presented as a series of mini docu-soaps, tells the story of Brian Burnie, a multi-millionaire whose ambition is to die penniless. The second strand, ‘My Big Decision’, examines the choices made by extraordinary individuals, including a woman who turned her own sons in to the police and the first person in Britain to have a sex change. The nine films will be presented by Wendy Robbins, produced by Belfast-based producer Peter Murphy and executive produced by Paul Woolwich (Dirty War). The shoot dates are TBC.

Stephen Stewart, Green Inc’s Managing Director said; “It’s very exciting to be working with CTVC and co-producing inserts for a BBC1 series as successful as The One Show, and with our new UTV gardening series launching both commissions significantly enhance Green Inc’s reputation as a trusted supplier of high quality factual-entertainment formats for local and network broadcasters”.

Furthermore, Green Inc’s new gardening series, ‘Glorious Gardens’ is to be broadcast on Monday, July 26th at and sees Irish gardening expert Eugene Higgins embarking on a challenging project unique to Northern Ireland. Eugene will look to transform six tired and dull plots into gardens of his dreams for the series, produced by Green Inc. for UTV.

Each programme features one garden in desperate need of some love and attention. After establishing how the garden is to be used by the community Eugene visits the local National Trust property for inspiration, touring the grounds, investigating plants and features as he goes. Eugene Higgins has been a regular contributor for the past five years on ‘The Afternoon Show’, RTE1’s flagship daytime series also produced by Green Inc.

‘Glorious Gardens’ is produced by Deborah Bennett and Directed by Tracie O’Neill (assoc. producer, Chasing Time In). It will broadcast on UTV on Monday, July 26th at 8.00pm.
