Endemol Entertainment UK production arm Initial has won the commission from Channel 4 and Emap to produce 2 x 60-minute shows featuring footage from the Q Magazine Awards 2000. The shows will be produced by Jo Pilkington (The O Zone), poached by Initial this week from BBC music entertainment.

Initial has also appointed Brighter Pictures head of production Nav Raman (Flava) as executive producer. In addition, Endemol's new creative interns are working on ideas for C4's soon-to-be-vacant TFI slot. At the same time C4 has commissioned indie Straight TV to film and produce a 1 x 60-minute special on the Ericcson Muzik Magazine Awards 2000. The dance music awards, presented by Pete Tong and Sara Cox, take place on 19 October and will transmit on C4 on 25 October.
