Tool Club

Following a successful pilot, Channel 4 has commissioned a fifteen-part series of Tool Club from Sheffield-based Spark North and Scotland-based Beezr Studios, for Channel 4 daytime.

Kate Thomas, who commissioned the series for Channel 4 said “We are delighted to have worked with Spark North and Beezr to grow this brilliant show from a development to TX pilot and now a fully-fledged, and utterly brilliant series.”

Joff Powell, Spark Media’s Creative Director said: “We’re delighted to have secured Spark North’s first series commission working alongside BEEZR and can’t wait to build on what our Tool Club achieved in the pilot to help a nation in need of some serious DIY training.”

We might all have attempted to spruce up our surroundings recently, but with millions of pounds spent each year rectifying the DIY jobs Brits have botched at home, this series will offer useful tips and hacks to help us skill up and offer some practical inspiration to everyone bored of the same four walls.

In the series, which will transmit on Channel 4 in 2023, Tool Club host Kevin Duala leads a four-strong team of creative DIY experts alongside Jessica Grizzle (all-round DIY expert), Julia Miller-Osborn (expert carpenter) and Mac McMurdo (Designer and Upcycler) as they tackle botched DIY projects. The team will be taking on everything from ambitious builds to small repairs, with each project giving viewers at home a handy guide of useful tips, hacks and practical inspiration.

We aim to provide top quality programming while also doing everything we can to keep our environmental impact to a minimum, both locally and when filming abroad.

The Unit Base is kitted out with recycling bins, water coolers for easy refills and low energy bulbs. Crew are all issued with re-usable water bottles to reduce plastic consumption and we are committed to sourcing locally and sustainably.

Our productions are signed up to BAFTA's Albert scheme to focus on reducing the environmental impact of filming and to establish a workable and realistic plan to help decrease our carbon footprint. There is a 'think before you print' policy and we only use rechargeable batteries.

We're using low emission/hybrid vehicles for unit cars, taxis and couriers. We ask people to car share and have a 'no idling' policy. We also use offsetting programmes with airlines when booking team travel abroad for those emissions we can't reduce.
