TV

BBC Children’s Productions has today announced their new commissions including a brand-new high school drama for BBC iPlayer, PHOENIX PARK. The series is lead directed by fantastic TALL client Claire Tailyour and Stephanie Lacey has also written for the series.

Set in a West Midlands school, Phoenix Park (20×30’) will follow a diverse group of teens who are taking their first tentative steps back into mainstream education after being excluded for a variety of reasons. Exclusively launching on BBC iPlayer, Phoenix Park is the opportunity for these six misfit heroes to prove that sometimes being an outsider means belonging to the best club of all, as their unlikely friendships bond them and fuel their determination not to be side-lined.

It’s written and created by Matt Evans and Perrie Balthazar and developed by the Children’s Productions’ Scripted Development team led by Anna Davies, the series is aimed at the upper end of the children’s audience on BBC iPlayer.

Each episode will follow one of the characters as the optimism and fun of teen life is set against the challenges they face in and out of the classroom.
