Following the success of our ‘Mend It For Money’ pilot earlier this year which pulled in 1.4m viewers on Channel 4, we’re pleased to announce we’ve been commissioned for a full series to be co-produced with Storyboard Studios.
Narrated by Tom Allen and housed in a specially-created headquarters, the series combines high-end restorations with social history as some of Britain’s best antiques restorers give objects a new lease of life.
For each of the three restorations featured in the show, two of the country’s top craftspeople will compete to get the job, pitching their plan for bringing the item back to life.
The show is co-produced by Chalkboard TV and our Glasgow sister company Storyboard Studios.
C4 Daytime Commissioning editor Kate Thomas says: “This show resonated with our audience because of its distinctively C4 flavour, plus its warm and diverse cast of restorers."
Mike Benson says: “With Mend it For Money we wanted to come at genre we know works – antiques, collectables and restoration – and inject some Channel 4 irreverence and intrigue in the form of a format twist where both owner and restorer have skin in the game! With Tom Allen narrating in his own inimitable style we hope Mend it for Money will be a fascinating, fun watch!”>
