Sky1 has given the green-light to We Love Penguins, a one-off documentary which hails from sister company Sky Vision Productions.
The 60 minute documentary will combine user generated footage and natural history clips of penguins to explore people’s love of penguins. It was commissioned by Sky 1’s Factual Commissioning Editor Eric Harwood and will be shopped to global broadcasters by Sky’s international distribution division Sky Vision.
“Who doesn’t love penguins?”, said Eric Harwood. ” We think many of our viewers will enjoy this one-off special which shows how these flightless birds with a funny walk have occupied a place in all our hearts, especially at Christmas.”
We Love Penguins! has been ordered as a key part of Sky1’s Christmas output. Other titles on the channel’s Christmas schedule include a Stella Christmas special; and one-off drama Agatha Raisin And The Quiche Of Death, which is based on the novel series by MC Beaton and is being toplined by Ashley Jensen (The Escape Artist).
