Exceptional circumstances call for exceptional broadcasts. As Germany social distances and stays indoors, Brainpool TV, a Banijay Group company today announces the launch of new interactive show, Luke, Alone at Home for Sat.1. Airing daily from Monday 23 March 2020, the live show, without an audience, will see a camera rig capture star, Luke Mockridge, as he stays at home with the nation.
In each episode, the comedian and entertainer gathers the audience at his campfire from 6pm to 7pm. From the sofa and via the screen, Luke makes contact with his audience: What do people do to stop the walls closing in? What are they doing differently while in quarantine? This is a show dedicated to uniting the nation from a small, improvised at-home studio.
Luke Mockridge comments: “Maybe we can become the German equivalent of the Italian balcony! An injection of happy go-lucky with music, talk, switching around the world and the challenge of not only broadcasting every day, but somehow coming through this difficult time together! I’ll do it as long as you’re with me!”
SAT.1’s MD, Kaspar Pfl-ger adds: “In these times, live television is particularly important. In the morning, SAT.1 informs its viewers much more intensively with the reduction of breakfast television. And at night, we invite viewers to sit with and next to Luke on the couch, so that the crucial home-being becomes lighter and more enjoyable. Thank you, Luke, for doing this wonderful, anarchic show from your improvised studio with us.”
Luke, Alone at Home is produced by BRAINPOOL TV in collaboration with Lucky Pics on behalf of SAT.1.
