Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig was commissioned by Channel 4 and will air on the channel in the UK on Wednesday 10th February at 9pm. Following the new deal, All3Media International is now set to launch the title to the global market. A four-part primetime series, Extraordinary Escapes sees comedian, writer and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig joining some of her well-known female friends – familiar faces from the worlds of acting and comedy to world renowned cooks, such as Alison Steadman, Sindhu Vee, Jessica Hynes and Prue Leith – to explore the delights of the wildest, most remote and beautifully designed holiday hangouts the UK has to offer.
This new collaboration with Tuesday’s Child is the latest factual-themed relationship forged by All3Media International in the last year, adding to recent distribution pacts with Nutopia (A World of Calm) and Two Rivers Media (Escape to the Chateau: Make Do & Mend).
Karen Smith, CEO Tuesday’s Child said, “All3Media International are the perfect partners to distribute this lovely, funny travelogue series about architecture and friendship set in some of the UK’s most magnificent locations and we’re thrilled to be working with them on it. They’re a good company to sell a show about the value of good company.”
Rachel Job, SVP Non-Scripted at All3Media International commented, “Teaming up with Tuesday’s Child Television on Extraordinary Escapes is a perfect fit with our strategy to build returning non-scripted brands in partnership with the genre’s most talented and innovative creatives. Karen Smith, Steph Harris and the Tuesday’s Child team have established an impressive reputation for creating high-calibre factual brands. The natural curiosity, wit and warmth that Sandi and her travelling companions bring to each stunning location is a joy to watch and we’re confident that Extraordinary Escapes has great potential to become a long-running global favourite.”
Whilst many around the world are in lock-down or curfew – the travel bug can be sated by journeying with Sandi as she visits remarkable retreats. Whether it’s a lofty lighthouse, a towering treehouse or a seaside sanctuary, the ingenious builds they visit include the most architecturally inspiring, cleverly designed holiday properties Britain has to offer.
