Channel 4 orders tasty looking Domino’s Pizza documentary

Forget fried chicken, takeaway pizza is now on the ob-doc menu at Channel 4


Has chicken has fallen out of favour at Channel 4? The broadcaster, well known for commissioning gripping observational documentaries including The Fried Chicken Shop, is turning its cameras on takeaway pizza company Dominos. 


Channel 4 are set to go behind the counter of the pizza chain in a one-off ob doc featuring the “fascinating characters across the company, from the decision making bosses at the top, to the office employees and staff at local branches.”

The documentary will also follow the pizzas out of the oven and to their customers’ homes and workplaces. 

“With exclusive access to over 850 shops and a 24,000 strong workforce, Dominos promises to tell a compelling story about an extraordinarily diverse range of pizza entrepreneurs and customers across our nation,” says Channel 4’s head of formats Dom Bird. 


“Domino’s is a fascinating company full of great characters and following the pizzas means getting a slice (ho ho) of life from Britain’s homes, workplaces, even trains! Expect the programme to be warm, funny and entertaining; we’re excited to be making it,” added production company ALASKA TV.
