TV company seeks Adelphi sequel

TV company seeks Adelphi sequel

A television company has vowed not to abandon its plans for a second fly-on-the-wall Hotel series - despite being unable to find a suitable hotel.

Lion Television, which produced the documentary for the BBC, originally wanted to film a follow-up series at Liverpool's Adelphi hotel.

But after a disagreement between the BBC and Britannia Hotels, owners of the Adelphi, (Caterer, 25 June, page 7) Lion started to search for another site.

It needs a privately owned hotel with more than 250 bedrooms and conference facilities.

"Our requirements are specific because we need a good mix of customers and events," said a Lion spokesman.

"I am surprised we have not found anywhere, but we are treating this as an open-ended research period and we never say no. Hopefully we will find somewhere soon."

More than 12 million viewers watched last year's controversial eight-part series, which sparked off a deluge of industry criticism.
