Idris Elba’s Fight School

Workerbee, Green Door, BBC


- Reality Series

The series provided a much-needed forum to discuss tough themes and important issues affecting today’s youth, challenging stereotypes and showing that with the right support, anything is possible. The series was made in the peak of the pandemic, often delayed and thwarted by COVID outbreaks, the team and cast persevered to produce the series over two years. The programme spanned genres as a unique constructed series, driven by sports action and documentary reality content. The series demonstrated a depth in storytelling of complex back stories and immersive 24/7 actuality. The final was a huge multi-cam shoot involving 10 cameras and super-slo motion Pantom cameras. We are delighted to report that the peak audience of the series more than doubled the market share for Adults 16-34 by +128%. The project successfully drew a BAME share of 30%. In real terms this outperformed the biggest factual shows on the BBC - bigger than Masterchef, Top Gear, and other huge factual formats.
