Salt Street Productions Secure New Series

News Image
Salt Street Productions has secured a new six-part series, expected to air on All 4 later this year.

The series will delve into some of Britain's most interesting locations via a group of young, talented urban athletes.

Travelling across the UK on a converted double decker bus, freerunner Katie McDonnell, highliner Jediah Doohan, BMX rider Pete Catherall and skateboarder Calvin Ligono will breathe new life into six lost locations as they explore each space through their chosen sport. The history of each location is revealed as the athletes meet locals who share their memories and connection to each place.

Daisy Mount, All 4 Commissioning, said: "We've been really keen to use the spectacle of adventure and urban sports in a totally new way, so when we met Ed and the team at Salt Street we knew there was the potential to do something amazing. This project is a great way of celebrating and breathing new life into bits of Britain that have been left forgotten, and with Salt Street's pedigree in urban sports, we know it'll be in a completely innovative, exciting style."

Ed Birch, Founding Director, Salt Street Productions, commented: "We want to bring the fun, playful and risk-taking approach our athletes take to exploring their own urban environments to help re-awaken each of the incredible locations featured in our series. Having once housed thriving residential, leisure or working communities, the places we visit have either been lost to time or are in the process of being redeveloped. We hope to inject a new lease of life into what we see as some of Britain's most spectacular abandoned playgrounds."

Salt Street Productions specialise in making short-form content about outdoor sports told from alternative perspectives. This new series was commissioned by All 4 following an open-pitch round hosted at Kendal Mountain Festival in 2016. It has been commissioned by All 4's Thom Gulseven with Editor Daisy Mount.

Claire Jane Carter, Artistic Director of Kendal Mountain Festival, added: "Kendal Mountain Festival have shared a long and fruitful partnership with Channel 4 which last year resulted in the TV-premiere of four fantastic outdoor adventure films as part of the series 'Life on the Edge'. It also provided our community of outdoor filmmakers with the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the All 4 commissioning team and we are delighted this has resulted in a commission for the wonderfully talented Salt Street Productions team."
