Channel 5 commissions Twofour to produce Britain’s Crime Capitals
Twofour has been commissioned to produce a 4 x 60â€™ series exploring Britainâ€™s crime capitals for Channel 5.
Britainâ€™s Crime Capitals, presented by Nick Wallis, exposes the fight on crime in some of Britainâ€™s major cities including Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow and Manchester.
The series will explore Birminghamâ€™s gang crime; Liverpoolâ€™s long battle with guns; Manchester and its war on drug related crime and Glasgowâ€™s long association with knife crime and stabbing.
Exploring some of the most notorious areas, Britainâ€™s Crime Capitals will give an up to the minute picture of the criminal activity facing the citiesâ€™ inhabitants. Weâ€™ll hear from the victims and criminals as well as those charged with trying to win the criminal wars on Britainâ€™s city streets.
Channel 5 Commissioning Editor: Factual, Guy Davies said: â€śBritainâ€™s Crime Capitals gets behind the headlines to explore how some of our biggest cities have become characterised by particular crimes. These stories are a fascinating way of looking at how crime develops and takes hold in Britain, how it is being tackled and how people are fighting back.â€ť
Dan Adamson, Director of Programmes, Twofour, said: â€śThe level and breadth of crime on Britain’s streets is a topic that impacts on us all. Through access to those on the front line, this series will explore some of Britainâ€™s crime hot spots.â€ť
The series will be executive produced by Dan Adamson for Twofour.
