Trip Hazard is back for a supersized second series. The 5×60’ entertainment travelogue format created by Studio 71 and produced by CPL Productions, sees Rosie joined by more celebrity friends to explore the unlikeliest of destinations around the UK, experiencing the unusual, quirky and bonkers activities on offer in each location.
With longer episodes and more chance to explore, Rosie and her famous companions have more time to create mischief, get stuck in with the locals and go head to head in a contest for a big finale to each episode.
In a one-off, as yet untitled, documentary made by Twofour, Rosie explores society’s attitudes towards disabled people. Rosie regularly receives shocking abuse on social media and she will use this as a starting point to investigate how widespread the problem is, looking particularly at the specifics of the language used towards disabled people to build a picture of the nature of society’s attitudes towards them.
Rosie will meet other people targeted for abuse about being disabled as well as those campaigning for change. Approaching the documentary with her inimitable humour and love for life, Rosie will also rope in her friends from the world of comedy to help raise awareness of the problem.
Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment and Events at Channel 4, said: “Rosie Jones is a brilliant talent and we absolutely love working with her. We’re over the moon viewers will get to see more of the Rosie they love in Trip Hazard, as well as a different side to her in the documentary which looks at a massively important issue that is incredibly close to Rosie’s heart.”
Trip Hazard and the one-off documentary (title TBC) were commissioned for Channel 4 by Jonny Rothery, commissioning editor, Entertainment and Live Events and Phil Harris, Head of Entertainment and Events. Trip Hazard is made by CPL Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, and the executive producers are David Taylor, Murray Boland and Danielle Lux. The documentary will be produced by Twofour, part of ITV Studios, and the executive producers are Rosie Jones, Grace Reynolds and David Brindley.
