Creative Company

Broadcaster: TG4

Creative Company is a fact-ent whittle-down television format that sets out on a mission to find a country’s most creative workplace through the medium of art.

Love in Isolation is a unique dating format set against the backdrop of Covid-19. With whole countries going into quarantine and populations self-isolating en masse, this unique format breaks through the boredom of quarantine to connect lonely souls across the world.

They share their lives right now and how they are surviving this unique situation and ultimately they talk about themselves and their quest to find love.
