Chris Moyles and Stacey Solomon have teamed up once again to host the brand new series of the dating show The Love Machine. The new series was the first television production to record on Pinewood’s brand new 30,000 sq ft Richard Attenborough Stage after it was completed earlier this year.
The stage has been built with both film and television production in mind after a trend towards large light entertainment shows utilising Pinewood’s film stages to house large, complex sets and huge audiences. The new stage is part of a multimillion pound investment in Pinewood’s TV business. The Love Machine moved in hot on the heels of the film production Les Misérables.
Sarah Buckenham, Head of Production at Princess Productions, commented: "We found the The Richard Attenborough stage to be a great space to host The Love Machine. It worked just as well as being in a normal TV studio. In fact, better, as we had more height and room right round the set to what we would normally get.”
The Love Machine is produced by Princess Productions and returns to Sky Living HD this autumn. The ten episode series was recorded in front of an audience of approximately 650 in July 2012. The first series of The Love Machine was recorded on J Stage at Shepperton Studios.
