ITV commissions weekend morning shows
ITV has commissioned two new, non-scripted formats for weekend mornings, to begin transmission in April.
Breakfast at Garraway’s will see Kate Garraway present the 60-minute programme on Saturdays, alongside Myles Stephenson.
The magazine-style show has been ordered as a 22-episode run.
The second new commission will be presented by father and son Martin and Roman Kemp as another 22-episode series.
Martin & Roman’s Sunday Best! will feature celebrity guests, live comedy and music performances and challenges that will pit the hosts against each other.
Both series come from Cactus TV; the executive producer is Amanda Ross.
Head of ITV Entertainment, Katie Rawcliffe, said: “We are delighted to welcome these household names to Saturday and Sunday mornings. They promise feel-good entertainment to get us ready for the weekend.”
