BBC Two has commissioned Saved and Remade (20x30', w/t) from Red Sky Productions, presented by Sabrina Grant.
Red Sky Productions was set up by Jane Rogerson and Ross Harper to create returning popular factual and factual entertainment shows from its Glasgow base. It won its first commissions in 2017 and has since built on strong foundations to create popular factual brands for a range of broadcasters, including Island Medics (BBC1), Jimmy's Big Bee Rescue (Channel 4), Puppy School (Channel 4), Spring at Jimmy's Farm (Channel 4), Tiny Lives and Socially Distant with Susan Calman (both BBC Scotland). So far in 2020 the company has had five series commissioned. Red Sky won an RTS Scotland Award for BBC science documentary Climategate and Puppy School was voted the most inspiring programme at the National Reality TV Awards. The company has ambitious plans for growth, through increasing and diversifying its factual output for a range of broadcasters.
Saved and Remade (w/t) brings together the multiple skills of a team of expert craftspeople to help solve viewers' conundrums of what to do with treasured but purposeless items. Host Sabrina Grant, herself no slouch in the upcycling department, will be helping contributors choose which of the experts has the vision and ability to convert objects that have meaning but are gathering dust, into items can take pride of place in their lives. The transformation from precious but purposeless will grant these pieces a new lease of life. The experts will respect the sentimental significance of each of the items brought in but will bring about incredible transformations that will be a fitting match for their owners.
Sabrina Grant says:
"I'm super excited to front this brand new BBC Two series that creatively re-purposes and brings a new lease of life to our guests' treasures. I can't wait to share the magic of our transformations with you."
Executive Producer Jane Rogerson adds:
"We're thrilled to be working with Sabrina, and indeed all of our crafts people on this exciting new format for BBC Two. We cannot wait for everyone to see what the unused but much-loved pianos, cars, books and many other items that we all have in lofts and cupboard will become with the skills and imagination of our team of craftspeople. Prepare to be surprised and delighted!"
The Executive Producer for Red Sky Productions is Jane Rogerson, with Kim Rossiter as Series Producer. The series was commissioned by Helen Munson for the BBC.
The greenlight for Saved and Remade follows other recent commissions including Autumn at Jimmy's Farm (Channel 4), Socially Distant with Susan Calman (BBC Scotland) and Jimmy's Big Bee Rescue (Channel 4)
