In 2016 Yellow Lizard Media was approached by Monir Ali, producer at Little Big Ego with the task of shooting and editing an Asian cookery programme for Sony’s SAB TV channel called Spice up. This was the first time Yellow Lizard Media would be taking on a TV programme rather than an online video production but we were keen to get involved.
The series was 12 episodes long, showcasing the cooking skills of Poonam Ball and each episode would dive into a different area of Asian cooking and show the viewer how to create each dish at home, with the Christmas episode airing on Christmas morning showing the viewer how to prepare and cook a spicy roast! The show was a massive success and was received well by Sony and the viewers with its interactive style of shooting.
Yellow Lizard Media was then asked only months later to shoot a second cookery programme, this one called ‘Taste of Asia’, again, showing different Asian dishes but with celebrity guests including pop stars, reality TV personalities and more, hosted by the talented Manju Malhi. Again taking on all elements of the filming and editing of the 12 episode long show including the graphical elements. Both shows have series two being planned and hope to start shooting in 2017.
Monir Ali had this to say about Yellow Lizard Media:
“As a producer I need a reliable and dependable team. And these chaps deliver. Great professionalism. And abundance of creativity. Will continue our long standing working partnership.”
