The Only Way is Essex is ITV’s BAFTA award-winning constructed reality series that exploded onto screens in 2010.  The stand-out, smash hit, ITVBe entertainment series follows the lives of a glamorous group of cast as they go about their totally Essex lives.

TOWIE, as it has become so affectionately known, is a multi-award-winning reality series that is filmed like a drama and shot and edited within a week of transmission. Unique and innovative, the show has changed the face of television, launching a completely new genre of entertainment known as ‘dramality’ or ‘real drama’.

Filled with make-ups and break ups, humour and warmth, TOWIE is addictive viewing and engages the audience across multiple platforms, with some of the strongest social media statistics in television.

The success of the show has led to a number of spin-offs for ITV including Christmas specials and episodes from exotic locations as such as Marbella, Ibiza, Tenerife, Mallorca, Sardinia and Thailand; alongside studio and clip-based shows celebrating the brand’s success including All Back to Essex, The Power of TOWIE.  Digital series Fresh Out of Essex and Top TOWIE Moments were also produced for ITV Hub by Lime Pictures in-house digital team.
