Putting pets into primetime
Run time: 8 x 60'
Broadcaster: BBC One (UK)
Distributor: Beyond Rights holds rights for the format, and the UK and Australian completed series.
Hosted by multi-award-winning actor and huge dog lover, Sheridan Smith OBE, Pooch Perfect features 16 professional dog groomers battling it out across a series of heats to be crowned ‘the Nation’s Top Dog Groomer’. Each episode features some ‘pawsome’ themed challenges revealing epic ‘transfurmations’ of adored family pets. Every week, the contestants reveal their creations on the ‘Dogwalk’, where Colin Taylor and Verity Hardcastle, two of the grooming industry’s top judges, deliberate over who stays and who goes walkies.
This original idea from Beyond Productions UK has already been produced in Australia, with Hollywood star Rebel Wilson as host. Further international versions will be announced shortly.
