MediaCityUK is celebrating the success of Gok Wan’s latest TV show ‘GOK LIVE: STRIPPING FOR SUMMER’, which was broadcast live from the MediaCityUK waterside piazza for three consecutive Tuesdays in July, bringing thousands of people down to the area to watch the show.
The three hour-long programmes made by Remarkable Television, an Endemol company for Channel4, saw Gok Wan do what he does best and help women solve their dressing dilemmas for the summer holiday season. The Peel Media events and operations team looked after the external set up, whilst dock10 managed the productions by utilising the site-wide connectivity and studio galleries, which link directly to the piazza.
Stephen Wild, managing director MediaCityUK said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Gok Wan and the Endemol team to MediaCityUK. This show was a first for us and it was a perfect example of how we and dock10 can work in partnership to deliver live televised events in our impressive outdoor space, using its first class technology and expertise. We look forward to hosting more events of this nature in the future.”
“dock10’s expertise coupled with the infrastructure of MediaCityUk enabled Endemol to produce an exciting ‘location’ based show, but with the flexibility, ease and security of a studio production. Offering innovative solutions with the best of service is at the very core of what we do and helps to differentiate us from the competition. As ever, working with both Endemol and Gok was a real pleasure – I hope we helped create something very special for their team, Channel 4 and the viewer alike.”Jonathan Harley, Head of Production Development for dock10.
Gok Live: Stripping for summer was commissioned by Channel 4 Head of Features, Gill Wilson, and was produced by Remarkable Television, an Endemol company. The series was executive produced by Kitty Walshe and series produced by Catherine Mann.
