TV series looks for building projects for celebrity show

A new prime-time TV series, which will feature celebrities painting walls or laying tiles to complete a charitable building programme, is on the lookout for projects.

The series, provisionally titled With a Little Help From My Friends, will be three one-hour specials airing on ITV1 on Saturdays this autumn.

Each will focus on a different charitable project that will be completed by a celebrity and a group of friends who will race against the clock to finish the job.

Initially the series will cover building or renovation programmes for children in deprived areas, children who are sick or living in hospices, people living with disabilities and community and sports facilities.

Filming is due to take place between May and July and charities must have planning permission and be available to work alongside the production team during these months.

"Appearing on peak airtime will be fantastic for awareness," said Jane Allen, managing director at marketing company Jumping Bean.

Interested charities should contact Jumping Bean on 020 8681 0099 or email by 16 April.
