BBC 2 Renews The Many Faces Ofâ€¦ From Green Inc
A second series of The Many Faces of… from Green Inc has been commissioned and will air later this year on BBC 2.
Janice Hadlow, Controller BBC Two; Alan Tyler, Executive Editor Entertainment Commissioning; and Mark Linsey, Controller Entertainment Commissioning have ordered 4 x 60min episodes following the success of the first series.
A contemporary entertainment archive series, The Many Faces Of… traces the story of some of the best-loved faces in British entertainment, charting their career through their choices, most significant roles and comic incarnations. Using archive and testimony from friends and colleagues, each show tells a narrative from their earliest appearances on radio, TV or film and looks at what drove their choices - and the consequences.
Alan Tyler commented: “The Many Faces of… is a powerful, smart, biography brand which manages to be both entertaining and revealing. We are delighted to be bringing the series back to BBC Two viewers. Green Inc has lined up fantastic names and surprising stories.”
The shows will be produced jointly from Green Inc’s Northern Ireland and Scottish bases with Charlie Stuart as Producer/Director, Deborah Bennett as assistant producer, and will be Executive Produced by Stephen Stewart for Green Inc and Alan Tyler for the BBC.
