Lion TV has picked up a hat trick of commissions worth over£2m for ITV1's daytime schedule, including a roadshow for pets.

The Animal Roadshowwill give pet owners across Britain the chance to take their pets' problems to experts including a vet and an animal behaviourist. The 20 x 60-minute series will be stripped across the week.

Production has just begun on the series, which is due for delivery later this year. The executive producer is Bridget Sneyd and the series producer is Jamie Langton.

The other commissions include The Golden Lot, an antiques-themed high-stakes gameshow. Six contestants try to avoid elimination through a series of rounds by guessing the price of antiques, in a bid for a cash prize.

The production team is working on an interactive element, where viewers can play along by pressing the red button.

Shooting will start later this year on the 12 x 30-minute series. The executive producer is Adam Wood and Steven Pinhay is producing.

Finally, in Mums on Striketwo fathers are left with their children for four days while the mothers watch how they cope from the comfort of a luxury spa.

The stripped 25 x 45-minute series is nearing the end of shooting and is due for delivery in the spring. The executive producer is Hilary Rosen and the series producer is Virginia Hill.
