ITV2 COMMISSIONS BRAND NEW KEITH LEMON 'REALITY' SERIES LEMON LA VIDA LOCA
ITV2 has ordered a four-part comedy ‘reality’ series from Talkback – Lemon La Vida Loca - filming the ‘behind-the-scenes’ world of Keith Lemon as his career takes a stratospheric turn!
ITV2, the home of the behind the scenes reality show, will take an exclusive comic look into the anarchic world of Keith Lemon, capturing his home life, work life and everything in between in this no-holds barred ‘reality’ series. We’ll follow Keith as settles down with his new girlfriend, Rosie Parker as well as sneaking a peek on him making Celebrity Juice, Keith Lemon’s LemonAid and his new movie, Keith Lemon The Film.
Managing Director, Talkback, Dan Baldwin said:
“This series is for anyone who has longed to see Keith Lemon opened up, naked & bare…metaphorically speaking. Let’s not forget, Keith is a normal (ish) bloke from Leeds who’s hit the big time, so how does he cope with the fast cars, adoring women, celebrity friends, his army of fans and the pay packet to match? Lemon La Vida Loca reveals the real man behind the glittery, strawberry blonde, moustache.”
Keith Lemon added:
“Really excited for Lemon La Vida Loca. It's been an incredible ride that I've been riding and now viewers will be able to come along on't ride with me. Until the day NASA invents a Keith lemon simulator then this 4 part 45 minute show Is the only way people will be able to experience being me, without actually being me. I hope me bird don't mind cameras in't bedroom…”
Lemon La Vida Loca was ordered by ITV Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, Angela Jain and commissioned by Commissioning Editor, Comedy and Entertainment, Claire Zolkwer. Claire said: “Letting Lemon loose with his own reality show – one thing’s for sure, ITV2 is unlikely to ever be the same again!”
Lemon La Vida Loca is a Talkback production for ITV2, to transmit late Summer 2012.
The series is Executive Produced by Dan Baldwin and Leon Wilson.
