Reef Television reveals The Story of Now for ITV


ITV has commissioned Reef Television to produce The Story of Now a-one hour special about the music compilation series Now That’s What I Call Music to be transmitted this summer. 

This one-hour documentary will tell the story of music and how the Now That’s What I Call Music compilation series grew from humble expectations to sell more than 100 million records in the UK, outselling most of the artists who have ever appeared on it.  It explores the history of music from vinyl through to cassette, CD and now downloads.  Everyone has a favourite memory prompted by a Now album and celebrities and artists will be sharing theirs on the show. 

The Story of Now was ordered by ITV’s Commissioning Editor for Comedy Entertainment Claire Zolkwer and is the first commission for Reef’s new Head of Specialist Factual Ben Weston, who joined the indie at the end of last year.  Reef Television has negotiated exclusive access to archive, artists and those behind the brand from EMI.

Claire Zolkwer, Commissioning Editor for Comedy Entertainment, ITV said: "Every Now album evokes particular points in people’s lives. This show will take our viewers back through the soundtrack of their lives and help them relive many special moments."

Richard Farmbrough, Managing Director of Reef Television said: “Now That’s What I Call Music is one of the phenomena that has infiltrated everyone’s lives at some point or another – we’ve all  owned a copy and you can pretty much calibrate someone’s age by it.  We’re thrilled to have been given this opportunity by ITV”.

The show will be executive produced by Ben Weston and the producer/director will be Matt O’Casey whose extensive music credits include Nation’s Favourite Number One for ITV and the acclaimed two part documentary, Queen - Days of Our Lives broadcast last year on BBC Two.
