I just wanted to let your members know that there is a company called Fresh One productions that have a budget from Channel 4 to do a series of programmes which detail the background lives to West End theatre musical productions. As such they want to film in and around a number of upcoming and existing musicals.
We have had meetings with representatives from Fresh One to look at the PACT/Equity television agreement and consider how they can make sure that they are abiding by that agreement. We have said that we will help facilitate them coming to a deal with our members on the productions so that the filming and therefore the television programmes can go ahead but ultimately it is up to the performers involved whether they consider the financial package is acceptable.
We do not want any further filming to go ahead unless consent has properly been given.
We are happy to receive any information from agents or discuss this further.
With best wishes
