Channel 5 commissions 2 x 60 series from Meridian Line Films

Meridian Line Films have been commissioned to make a 2 x 60’ documentary for Channel 5 which will take viewers behind the scenes of one of Britain’s most popular national attractions.

The commission follows Meridian Line Films being selected as one of Channel 5’s BAME indie partners in a collaboration with the TV Collective in 2019, where they were paired with commissioner Guy Davies.

Despite the global coronavirus pandemic, Channel 5’s Director of Programmes Ben Frow was determined to back the Channel 5 BAME Scheme, with several other indies landing commissions with the channel.

‘I’m thrilled to bits that each of these indies has landed a much-deserved commission,’ said Ben. ‘For change to happen in our industry, it’s incumbent on all of us to take measureable steps to open the doors to the range of talent that is out there.’

More details and the working title for Meridian Line Films’ documentary will be released shortly.
