BBC commissions interactive online drama

February 15th, 2007 by Lloyd Gofton

The MediaGuardian is reporting that the BBC has commissioned Endemol, creators of Big Brother, to create an ambitious interactive online TV show for its youth audience.

£800,000 has been earmarked for the project, which is a comparable budget to a typical TV drama.

According to Ashley Highfield, the BBC’s director of future media and technology, the show will be “wrapped in interactivity”, and is the “most ambitious internet format to date”.

A bold step for the BBC, but an inevitable one.

“In a crowded and confusing market I have always felt that well thought out PR campaigns deliver far more bang for the buck. This is especially true when it's with creative partner companies such as Liberate Media. Traditional marketing and ad spend can never focus on your target audience in the same way that opinion pieces and editorial can.

“I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Liberate Media's understanding of the market place as well as the technical issues is second to none.”
