Channel 4 commissions Taxi of Mum and Dad from Princess Productions
Channel 4 has commissioned Princess Productions, part of Endemol Shine Group, to produce Taxi of Mum & Dad – a new 1x60’ programme that will use fixed car rig to explore parenting in the family vehicle.
Taxi of Mum & Dad peers through the windscreen and eavesdrops on the complex relationships between families.
Parents have to compete with technology at home for their teens’ attention and rarely have the opportunity to catch up and connect as a family. But there is one place from which no-one can escape, a place that invokes interaction and conversation… and that’s the family car. Parents use the car as a way to catch up on what’s going on in their kids’ lives - to bond, to gossip, to dispense advice to a captive audience, and to have a laugh.
Taxi of Mum & Dad was commissioned by Channel 4 Education commissioning editor Emily Jones. Anna Blue and Will Spokes are the Executive Producers at Princess Productions, part of Endemol Shine Group.
Emily Jones said: “Taxi of Mum and Dad is a simple premise that captures those precious moments between teens and their parents when they’re not sure you’re looking. It’s a warm funny parenting programme that says: you may not know what you’re doing, but neither do they.”
Emma Hardy, Princess Productions Managing Director added, ‘We are delighted that Channel 4 has commissioned Princess to produce such an insightful programme that looks at modern parenting and British family life.”
