Granny Norbag to launch TV series!!!

91 year-old Yorkshire lass, Granny Norbag, is teaming up with Lost Souls Studios to launch her first ever TV series in the autumn of 2023. The singing pensioner, tipped to be the next Ariana Grandma, will showcase her crazy antics in a ten-part series released exclusively on her YouTube channel.

The show will feature sketches, stories and music videos and will be shot across multiple locations in Rotherham, including Wentworth Woodhouse, Magna Science Centre, Clifton Park Museum and The Rotherham Civic Theatre. The show will also allow for collaboration with primary schools from across the region and beyond, as children will be able to earn an exclusive ‘Golden Granny’ badge if their work is shown in one of the episodes. 

Granny Norbag, who is currently on tour, said, “I cannot wait to share the television programme with my fans. I’m delighted to be working with a brilliant team of creative young people to celebrate my work, my home town of Rotherham and my links with children from across South Yorkshire and beyond.

The Granny Norbag series will be written and produced by the project’s creator, Malcolm J Hogan. Malcolm is an award-winning songwriter, Sky TV/New Writing North supported writer and the current Artist in Residence at the Rotherham Civic Theatre. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, The National Lottery, Help Musicians, WeareIVE and support from RMBC and Sheffield Theatres, Malcolm is performing the ‘Granny Norbag Saves the Planet’ musical puppet show in schools, libraries and theatres across Yorkshire.

Lost Souls Studios is the creative venture of Adam Widdowson, an up-and-coming writer, filmmaker and all-round creative, who studied and graduated with a first class film degree at the University Centre Rotherham and was also a part of the pilot ‘Young Producers’ programme for the Children's Capital of Culture at Wentworth Woodhouse. This project is his first venture under the Lost Souls Studios name.

Sound and music for the show will be produced by Granny Norbag’s long-time collaborator, William Price of Tunedin Music Studios, Rotherham. William, who has a Masters Degree in Music for the Moving Image from Leeds Beckett University, will also work with Granny Norbag on the soundtrack album that will be released to coincide with the show’s launch. Artwork for the series will be created by Nick Oldham, the illustrator of the Granny Norbag book series.

End of Press Release.
