OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Brand new BBC Three series Angels Of The North (8x15’) will give viewers an access-all-areas pass to Longlox, a real life ‘pre-party’ hair extensions super salon in Tyneside, documenting the highs and lows of its stylists.
Made by Twenty Six 03 Entertainment, Angels Of The North will premiere on BBC iPlayer as an eight-part boxset from 10am on Sunday 8 December. It will also air on BBC One in double episodes from Tuesday 10 December at 11.45pm.
The salon is owned by Sammyjo Pearson, 31, and managed by ‘Mamager’ Bev, alongside their Longlox Girls, a team of young, funny, talented and ambitious hair experts, all under the age of 23. Many people become hairdressers, but these stylists are learning that it takes a lot more to be a Longlox girl.
Angels Of The North gives a candid insight into all the action from the salon, as well as following the stylists after hours from bonding nights out to milestone purchases made from hard-earned wages. The Longlox family work hard, play hard and then work hard some more.
The beating heart of the series is Sammyjo, who juggles her creative vision of making her salon the most Instagrammable in the north east with managing her team’s fractious and hilarious relationships - not to mention her own turbulent love life. There’s never a dull day in the salon.
Angels Of The North was commissioned by Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning and Fiona Campbell, Controller BBC Three. The Executive Producers for Twenty Six 03 Entertainment are Antonia Hurford-Jones and Duncan Gray, and series producer is Steve Earley. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown.
