Children’s TV show to be filmed in Newbiggin

The BBC will be in Newbiggin over the next three months filming a new children’s TV programme.

Tiger Aspect Productions will be using Newbiggin Sports Centre to film scenes for The Danny and Mick Show.

Danny & Mick  is aimed at six- to nine-year-olds and will premiere in 2019. Danny is a dogsbody in a leisure centre where his very big little brother, Mick, works as a security guard.

The show features the physical comedy skills of real-life half-brothers Danny Adams and Mick Potts, who are regular pantomime performers.

Sports centre manager Leanne Beattie said:

“The filming will fit around the existing sports centre programming so there will be very minimal disruption for our regular clients. There will also be an opportunity in time for children to view the set and see what goes on the behind the scenes.”
