BBC 1Xtra to push Salt N Pepa

Made in Manchester Productions has completed its first commission for the BBC digital network 1Xtra – a documentary about the return of Salt-N-Pepa.

The show was commissioned by the BBC’s Russell Crewe and is being produced by Chris Green and Paul Turley.

Made in Manchester Productions Creative Director Ashley Byrne told "Salt N Pepa’ are currently enjoying a revival in the United States thanks to a major VH1 reality series and we are delighted that they’ve taken time out of their busy schedule to speak exclusively to Made in Manchester in New York about their lives and legacy"

The programme will also include an interview with the DJ Spinderella at her home in LA as well as Trevor Nelson, Omar, Jill Scott and Ciara.

Made in Manchester Productions’ first production for 1Xtra follows hot on the heels of the company’s critically acclaimed ‘Laughter and Tears: The Les Dawson Story’ which was presented by Jo Brand and broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in October.

Ashley Byrne added: "We are proving once again that Made in Manchester can work right across different networks and genres. With commissions for the World Service, Radio 4, Radio 2, 1Xtra, ITV and BBC Local Radio, we are showing that there are no no-go areas for this company."
