First Production At The Space Project Announced

The team behind The Space Project, the new 360,000 sq. ft. drama and TV production hub due to open later this month, has announced the first production set to get underway at the high-spec facility, with the BBC confirmed to begin production there on an innovative new format for CBBC, with the 36 x 15’ drama, 'World's End'.

With the production set to move in and construction due to get underway immediately, and before the official opening of the facility on May 27th, the BBC will take over stages four and five at The Space Project, totalling over 19,000 sq. ft. of sound stage space, where they will remain until November 2014 in production on series one.
Based on the story of a group of children who find themselves in a remote castle on a rollercoaster adventure hurtling towards the World's End, all interior aspects of the setting will be constructed at The Space Project, with additional filming to take place on location. The series, from writers Diane Whitley and Danny Spring, will air on CBBC in 2014/15 and is being made by the in-house CBBC Productions team. The executive producer is Sarah Muller, with further casting and scheduling information to be announced in due course.
Sue Woodward OBE, Project Director at The Space Project, said of the agreement: "We're delighted to welcome the BBC on board even before we’ve officially opened the doors to The Space Project, with an agreement that gets us off to a truly flying start. World's End isn't just a fantastic first production to welcome to The Space Project, it's an innovative new approach to programme making, responding head-on to changing patterns of TV consumption and audience expectations and we're looking forward to being an enthusiastic partner in this cracking new commission."
Officially open from May 27th, The Space Project is managed by the successful Sharp Project management team and is taking bookings now. www.thespaceproject.tv
