C4 Commissions New Reality TV Series

News Image
Channel 4 has commissioned new reality TV series Shipmates from Birmingham based factual TV company Full Fat TV.

The show is set to see two teams of friends jet off to join 2,500 fun seeking holidaymakers on a luxury cruise liner with a difference. It will follow the Anchored Cruise, a luxury trip across the Mediterranean where 2,500 young holidaymakers unwind with an itinerary of pool parties, big name DJs and some of the most exclusive events in the world.

The two groups of friends will join the crowd aboard one of Europe’s most lavish cruise liners, and the teams of five will compete in a host of challenges. Only one group can come out victorious, with the fellow 2,500 passengers having the deciding vote on the winner.

5 one hour episodes of Shipmates have been commissioned by Becky Graham, commissioning editor for Factual Entertainment and Kelly Webb Lamb, Deputy Director of Programming for Channel 4. The series is to be overseen by Cadman and Gilly Greenslade for Channel 4. Chantal Boyle and Colette Foster will executive produce the series for Full Fat TV with Kim Rossiter as Series Producer.

Becky Cadman commented: "We're excited to be working with Midlands indie Full Fat TV on a series that’s guaranteed to be full of sun, sea and sass."

Colette Foster added: "We're delighted to be working with the extraordinarily talented team behind Anchored. They've given the cruise a millennial makeover and it's set to be the most Instagrammed event this year. The competition promises to be fierce and, we hope, the next must-watch series on Channel 4."
