Davina McCall to front brand new ITV Entertainment show, This Time Next Year
ITV has commissioned Twofour to produce a 6 x 60 primetime studio Entertainment series for the channel showcasing an array of incredible real-life transformations.
Davina McCall will host the show and she’ll meet people from all over the UK willing to share with the nation what they pledge to change about their life by ‘this time next year’. This pledge could be anything from losing half their body weight, finding the love of their life or even becoming a parent.
The series will feature ordinary people on a mission to transform their lives in extraordinary ways over the course of 12 months.
In a TV first, This Time Next Year will deliver these transformations in an instantaneous ‘time travel’ style format. Once each pledge is made, the contributor will leave the studio ready to begin their challenge, but just moments later will reappear completely transformed one year later, revealing a brand new them.
Only then will Davina and the viewers at home learn how they’ve achieved it.
This Time Next Year is commissioned by Elaine Bedell, ITV’s Director of Entertainment and Comedy and Amanda Stavri, ITV’s Entertainment Commissioner. Andrew MacKenzie and Melanie Leach are the executive producers. Amy Boyle is the series producer.
Andrew Mackenzie, Chief Creative Officer of the Twofour Group, said: “This series breaks the form of the traditional makeover format in resisting the temptation to document the process of transformation. Instead we’ve chosen to ignore the typical production model and concentrate instead on delivering reveal after reveal.”
