TOWIE star Elliott Wright lands his own show with ITVBe ‘Elliott Wright: Playa in Marbella’ produced by TOWIE creators Lime Pictures

Lime Pictures are pleased to announce Elliott Wright: Playa in Marbella, a brand new observational documentary series coming to ITVBe later this year.  The show will follow the glamorous world of former TOWIE star and entrepreneur Elliott Wright, delving into his personal and business life as he runs his high end restaurant  ‘Olivia’s’ named after his beautiful daughter, situated near Marbella – Europe’s most luxurious resort.

Elliott is the ultimate ‘business playa’ but with this season being his first opening summer there are no more rehearsal runs.  The rich and famous will be flocking to Marbella expecting perfection from the five star restaurant and luxurious champagne bar so Elliott has to deliver.  With a stunning setting overlooking the beach Elliott’s staff are expected to work to his high standards for quality and presentation.  With Elliott demanding 110% and after sacking over 100 staff within a year, the pressure really is on.

We will see Elliott as Dad to his two young children, Elliott and Olivia and get a unique first look into his relationship with stunning girlfriend Sadie.  Sadie is Elliott’s Princess and dream girl but how will the loved up pair cope when the heat is on and they’re working together to make the restaurant a success?  Does hostess Sadie have what it takes to match Elliott’s work ethic or does she just want to enjoy the finer things in life on the Costa del Sol?  And with Elliott needing to socialise with his clientele how will Sadie feel about his charms being worked elsewhere?

Elliott Wright comments; “I'm so excited to have my own show!  I'm the happiest I've ever been; I work hard and play hard and can't wait for people to get a chance to see me in action away from Essex and in Marbella as a businessman in one of my restaurants.  The show will also give an insight into my life in general covering everything from my family, relationship and kids.  I can't wait for you all to see the real me and I'm thrilled to be working with ITVBe and Lime Pictures on my new show!”

Lime Pictures’ Head of Non-Scripted, Derek McLean said: "We're really excited to be exploring Elliott's interesting world in Marbella from the glamorous backdrop of his stunning restaurant, to his fascinating playboy lifestyle and gorgeous girlfriend, to seeing the serious businessman and all the stresses that come with being a boss.  Lime Pictures has discovered some huge characters through it's reality entertainment series like TOWIE and it's a wonderful opportunity for growth when we can explore them in more detail away from their original shows.  We are very proud of the talent we have found and nurtured.”

Amanda Stavri, ITV’s Commissioning Editor, Entertainment said; “This is a real treat for all those Elliott fans missing him on ITVBe.  We can’t wait to have Elliott back on the channel, as we catch up with him building a brand new life, in one of the world’s most glamorous holiday resorts, Marbella.”

Elliott Wright Playa in Marbella is a 6 x 60 minute series which will be produced by Lime Pictures. The series has already begun filming in southern Spain and will be Executive Produced by Anna Edwinson and Derek McLean for Lime Pictures and was commissioned by Amanda Stavri for ITVBe.
