Thirty one years old this year, triple Emmy winning Twenty Twenty has a proud and successful track record as a producer of entertaining and impactful non-scripted and scripted hit formats. Our reputation in the industry is for originality and innovation.
The company is lead by creative executives Tim Carter (CEO), Meredith Chambers (Creative Director), Lisa Edwards (Director of Programmes) and Ana de Moraes (Director of Development).
Our biggest shows include the likes of parenting format World Strictest Parents which has sold into almost every territory in the world, musical makeover show The Choir, and period legal drama Garrow's Law.
We currently have two of our UK originated formats in production on US Networks: our competitive fashion forward format Styled to Rock (Exec Prod Rihanna) which will air on Bravo this fall, and It Takes a Choir (USA Network) which sees Emmy winning British Choirmaster Gareth Malone bringing communities together against the odds to pull off a show-stopping musical performances.
In the UK, we have had around a dozen shows in production this year. Returning formats The Hoarder Next Door, Extreme School and The Choir: Sing While You Work continue to pull in ratings for our customers.
And we have launched seven new shows. These include our interactive docu-dating format First Dates which has been picked up for a second season by Channel 4, How Not to Get Old, Miracle Hunter, Animal Heroes, Lifesavers, Tom and Barney's Incredible Inventions, and The Restaurateur. We've also delivered a pilot for a new returning legal drama format for Sky for which we have high hopes.
Recent critical acclaim for our shows includes a double- BAFTA for The Choir, International Emmys for Brat Camp, Gareth Goes To Glyndebourne and World's Strictest Parents, and a host of RTS and Broadcast Awards.
Great ideas, the very best talent and a deep respect for the people whose stories we tell – this is our formula for success. In 2011, we took the UK by storm with The Choir: Military Wives spawning a Christmas Number One, creating 75 military wives choirs around the world, and scooping Gareth Malone an RTS award for Best Presenter. Television still has the power to change people’s lives.
In drama, Twenty Twenty created the long-running BBC One drama Garrow’s Law, in children’s we’ve delivered hits including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Big Performance, and in entertainment we’ve teamed up with Rihanna to create the global A-List fashion show Styled to Rock.
Our big new push is into genuine viewer interactivity: we’re currently in production on television’s first genuinely interactive game-show for Sky, and a scaled-up interactive dating show for Channel 4.
