BBC One commissions entertainment special Frank Sinatra: Their Way

BBC One commissions entertainment special Frank Sinatra: Their Way

BBC One has commissioned Whizz Kid Entertainment to produce a one-off programme to celebrate the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth next year, entitled Frank Sinatra: Their Way.

The programme will feature unknown acts from all over the UK, performing their own unique versions of Frank Sinatra songs.  They could be solo singers, amateur dramatics groups, bands or choirs.

One act will win a once in a lifetime chance to perform at a special Sinatra centenary concert to be held in 2015. The programme will also pay tribute to the influence of Ol’ Blue Eyes over the last seven decades and the programme’s host is to be confirmed.

Frank Sinatra: Their Way was devised by Caroline Roseman, Head of Development at Whizz Kid Entertainment and commissioned by Rachel Ashdown, Commissioning Editor for BBC Entertainment and Mark Linsey, Controller, BBC Entertainment Commissioning.

It will be Executive Produced for Whizz Kid by Malcolm Gerrie, Lisa Chapman and Sue Andrew.

Rachel Ashdown for BBC Entertainment says: ““Frank Sinatra has an enduring appeal. This show is a celebration not only of some of the greatest songs of all time but also one of the world’s greatest icons.”

Malcolm Gerrie, Executive Producer Whizz Kid Entertainment, comments: “As a lifelong fan of Francis Albert Sinatra I am delighted we are able to celebrate the start of the great man’s centenary on BBC One.  Sinatra’s legacy is his music and we’re taking those fabulous songs back to the people who love him, young and old, and giving his fans a chance to say “happy birthday Frank”…their way!’’

Caroline Roseman, Head of Development at Whizz Kid Entertainment adds: “Frank Sinatra: Their Way is a tribute special with a difference and moves us far away from the classic Sinatra impersonators. We’re planning to cast very diverse acts from every corner of the UK to illustrate just how timeless and widely-loved Frank Sinatra’s music is.’’
