Production coordinator - Mrs Brown's Boys and The Course
BBC Studios is the main TV production arm of the BBC. It is a major supplier of high quality public service content and the source of many of the BBC’s most creative and inspiring programmes. BBC Studios recently launched as a new division of the Public Service. Subject to approval, next year it will take a second step to become a more competitive wholly-owned subsidiary of the BBC. The ambition of BBC Studios is to be the most creative production company in the world.
We are looking for an experienced Co-ord to work across two projects. The multi-award-winning comedy sensation Mrs Brown's Boys returns with two brand new and very naughty Specials for Christmas 2017. Agnes and co. are back, and they're bringing the Christmas spirit in a way that only they can to the fans who voted it The Radio Times' best sitcom of the 21st century. It's going to be a festive Mrs Brown treat with all the trimmings - Christmas tree and all.
And 5 x 30min eps of a new series The Course, based on a play written by Brendan O’Carroll about a group of no-hopers who have signed up for a Positive Mental Attitude Course. [This will be a combination of Location Filming in and around Glasgow and Studio Recordings in Studio ‘A’ BBC Glasgow]
