ITV1 Commissions Celebrate '30 Years Of An Audience With…'

One of the world's leading independent TV production companies' entertainment department and Shiver, part of ITV Studios UK, has been commissioned by ITV1 to co-produce a new 5 x 1 hour prime-time series to celebrate 30 Years of An Audience With…
The landmark entertainment brand An Audience With… has showcased momentous performances by some of the best-loved talent in the world including The Bee Gees, Dudley Moore, Neil Diamond, Lionel Ritchie, Take That, Ken Dodd, Victoria Wood, Shirley Bassey and Al Murray.
30 Years of An Audience With… will give viewers the definitive history behind An Audience With… reliving all the best moments and hearing how they came about from the stars who held TV audiences.
The series will speak to people behind the scenes to reveal how much planning goes into each show – including those questions from the celebrity audience – and from some of the stars who have put a question to their favourite performer.
Mark Robinson, Creative Director at Shiver commented: "An Audience With… is one of the stand out entertainment shows of the last 30 years and launched the idea of the celebrity audience. We’re delighted to be working on this anniversary series to celebrate its longevity and success. Along the way, through these performances, we’ll go on a journey and see how TV entertainment has developed over three decades."
Claire Horton, Controller of Entertainment at ITV STUDIOS (UK) added: "The on-going success of An Audience With… really needed to be celebrated. This much-loved series has delivered some of the greatest performances in UK television history. Who can forget Kermit the Frog’s duet with Kylie and Dame Edna’s classic barbed-responses to her celebrity audience’s questions! We’re delighted to be working with Shiver to produce this series for ITV1."
30 Years of An Audience with… was commissioned for ITV by John Kaye Cooper, Controller of Entertainment at ITV, is executive produced by Mark Robinson and Sumi Connock and series produced by Vicky Thomas.
An Audience with… is represented internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment where the show has previously been distributed throughout the world from Canada to Borneo, across the Middle East, Asia and Australia via Uzbekistan.
