Sky1 has ordered a 90 minute Christmas special fronted by JLS. A Very JLS Christmas will see the band perform some of their greatest hits, frolic with their fans and indulge in a series of huge stunts and talk exclusively about their incredible rise to fame.
The 90 minute special will be produced by Fulwell 73 and is envisioned as a way for the band to give something back to the fans that have made JLS so successful. The special will take place in an enchanted forest setting in front of some 400 fans, who will have the chance to hang out with the band in festive log cabins before attending their exclusive Christmassy gathering.
Speaking of A Very JLS Christmas, Phil Edgar-Jones, Sky’s Head of Entertainment, commented: “With some scream inducing surprises, top pop songs, presents galore and even a Christmas turkey dinner cooked by Marvin’s dad, A Very JLS Christmas will offer the best of Christmas in one jolly festive package. We are delighted to have secured unprecedented access to one of the country’s biggest boybands and are sure that Sky customers will have a very Merry Christmas in the company of JLS.”
While executive producer Ben Winston said: “We are really looking forward to this Christmas on Sky with JLS. This is a music special like nothing we have seen before. Christmas in the most magical of settings will be a festive treat for everyone.”
