Banijay Group-owned factual and unscripted specialist Wonder a has won a double commission from BBC Three for two new factual series, Work It  and Deadstock .

WORK ITIn Work It (4x15’), three inspiring fitness instructors, who have each overcome significant challenges, will be working with people in a very special gym that welcomes all shapes, sizes and physical abilities. Across the series, the instructors will meet inspiring people whose experiences will reflect issues such as grief, body image and low self-esteem. With unique fitness plans, they will aim to help people not only learn to love exercise, but love the skin they are in.

With the second-hand trainer market going through the roof, Deadstock (4x15’)will look at the serious amount of money that can be made from the most unexpected items and charity shop finds; from Pokémon cards to My Little Ponies and rare vinyl to designer bum bags. Two savvy ‘resellers’ will set up the Deadstock warehouse and offer free authentications, giving jaw-dropping valuations, whilst revealing the fascinating stories of how people came to own the unusual articles. The show will also follow the seller’s journey as they embark on putting their prized possessions on the market.

Both Work It and Deadstock were commissioned by Nasfim Haque, commissioning editor, BBC Three, with Sarah Trigg executive producer for Wonder. Work It and Deadstock will be distributed globally by Banijay Rights.

Commenting on the commissions, Trigg said: “Both series have been hugely enjoyable and exciting to develop. It's great to bring fresh new talent to BBC Three via two new fact-ent formats. Both shows mix entertainment with fun, fascinating and often moving stories from young people, on a platform that speaks directly to them.”

Haque added: “I’ve loved working with Wonder and their fantastic new team in Birmingham. I am incredibly proud of both these series as they feel relevant, fresh, stylish and absolutely joyous to watch.”
