-Competitive cleaning show to air later this year-
Fizz, part of Banijay Group’s RDF, and Nice One, today announce BBC Three’s commission of 1x30‘ factual entertainment show, Fight Dirty. The show marks the first commission to come from the co-development and co-producion partnership between Belfast-based Nice One Productions and Fizz.
Fight Dirty taps into the current tidying trend and will be challenging some of Britain’s most grubby and untidy people to completely clean up their act. Two messy households will do battle for a cash prize but neither property know the big surprise that’s in store for both of them in the process.
Fizz and Nice One’s partnership was born out of a shared commitment to invest and grow production in Belfast and the project is supported by funding from Northern Ireland Screen. More commissions from this partnership are set to be announced shortly.
Neale Simpson, Creative Director of Fizz said: “Fight Dirty is a frantic, filthy, feel-good format that puts the mischief in makeover. Partnering with my friend Chris on this and a number of projects has been a blast and this is just the beginning of our ambitious plans to deliver exciting new entertainment shows from Belfast”
Chris Jones, Founder and Creative Director of Nice One said: “I’m so happy and grateful that BBC Three are the first broadcaster to back our partnership with Fizz and immediately saw the potential for big laughs and learnings in this ‘filthy-to-fabulous’ funny format from Belfast.”
Fight Dirty has been commissioned by Clare Mottershead at BBC Three, and is co-executive produced by Neale Simpson for Fizz and Chris Jones for Nice One. All worldwide rights to Fight Dirty are owned by Banijay Rights.
