Channel 4 Commissions Pioneer’s Your Face Says It All
Your Face Says It All (3x60’) is a new Specialist Factual series produced by Pioneer Productions and commissioned by Sara Ramsden for Channel 4, which gives unparalleled insight into our greatest defining feature – The Face. With a combination of cutting-edge science, innovative graphics and personal testimony, this genre-busting series will show you the human face as it's never been seen before.
Faces fascinate us, our own, other people's, the stars whose images saturate our world; what makes us look the way we do, why some people look and age better than others, and the judgements we can't help but make. This series celebrates and explores the human face in all its complexity and diversity, young and old, black and white, male, female and transgender – through science, psychology and stars.
The three programmes will explore how our faces change with age, what makes a face beautiful and inspires sexual attraction and finally how your face affects your life.
Acting Specialist Factual Commissioning Editor Tom Porter says, "This is a different and very exciting way of tackling mainstream science. We're really excited by the blend of a cast of high profile faces and cutting edge imagery and how it will allow viewers to better understand their most important feature."
Jonathan Hewes, Pioneer CEO, says, "This series is packed with thought-provoking science, from evolutionary biology to neuroscience, psychology to physiology, and we hope that the mix of fascinating content with celebrities and computer graphics will mean you never look at your face – or other people’s faces – in the same way again."
Your Face Says It All will TX in late Autumn 2016. Helen Williamson serves as Series Producer for Pioneer.
