Channel 4’s features department has ordered three series that put a fresh spin on two of its major brands: Gok Wan and The Sex Education Show.
The fourth series of Remarkable Television’s The Sex Education Show has the subtitle ‘Stop Pimping Our Kids’ and will be stripped across a week in April as a 3 x 60-minute run, with a follow-up show later in the year.
It will look at the sexualisation of children via kids’ fashion and raunchy music videos and magazines, and campaign for change.
The Sex Education Show will also return in the summer for its fifth run as a weekly six-part programme, when it will include the results of a nationwide survey of sexual practices and attitudes.
Anna Richardson will return as presenter for both series, tackling tough questions about sex and addressing taboos such as sex and religion.
Gok Wan, presenter of C4’s How To Look Good Naked, will continue his campaign for body confidence but turn his attention to teenagers in Gok’s Teens: The Naked Truth (w/t).
The 4 x 60-minute ob-doc series will be produced by Maverick Television and sees Wan offering advice to reassure teenagers dealing with anxieties around their appearance.
The series was ordered by deputy head of features Andrew Jackson and will be exec produced by Andrew Anderson.
It will be produced by Debb Swindells.
