New Swan Commissions

Last night, at an event at the Serpentine Sackler gallery co-hosted by Grayson Perry, C4 announced their 2014 factual slate, which included a raft of new commissions for Swan Films.

Written and presented by actor and writer Rupert Everett, Love for Sale, is a bold and highly personal take on “the world’s oldest profession.” In this two-parter offers an unusually truthful and honest insight into the business, and a funny and sometimes angry attack on the hypocrisy that surrounds the subject.

Grayson’s Greatest Design (w/t), a one hour special for C4, will track the creation of Grayson Perry’s biggest, riskiest and most ambitious work of art yet: an extraordinary secular chapel, dedicated to the memory of a mythical Essex everywoman called ‘Julie’.  Grayson was born and brought up in the county and this intricate, provocative building is his tribute to Essex Woman in all her glory and his challenge to the reductive myth of the ‘Essex Girl’.

The special is in addition to the previously announced three-part Grayson Perry series Who Are You? (w/t),which is currently in production and will TX later this year.
