TLC UK is re-teaming with Jodie Marsh. The Discovery owned pay-TV channel has given the green-light to an as-yet untitled documentary series that will see the former glamour model investigating a wide range of topics.
Produced by October Films, the six episode series places Jodie at the heart of a number of investigations through a personal connection with each story. In each episode she will investigate a different topic, including the truth behind the Page 3 business and the up and downs of arranged marriages. Body cameras, video diaries and video phones will be utilised to allow viewers to experience her personal journey first hand. Mark Procter and Mandy Thomson serve as executive producers.
“Viewers love Jodie for her outspoken and honest approach to tough and important topics. This new series will take it a step further with Jodie at the centre of the issues she cares most about”, Clare Laycock, Head of TLC UK & Ireland. “Jodie’s insightful, frank style of reporting and ability to connect with her audience on a personal level makes her compelling to watch. We are immensely proud to welcome her back to TLC.”
This marks the latest project that Marsh has fronted for TLC UK, since they launched back in 2013. Jodie Marsh previously fronted a number of one-off specials (all under the title of Jodie Marsh On…) for the channel, which has seen her investigate such topics as virginity, extra-marital affairs, plastic surgery and mail order brides.
