    Missing Car- Seat/Broadchurch. The Prize Experience

    Missing Car- Seat/Broadchurch. The Prize Experience 16th Jun 17 at 6:16 PM
    Just got back from London and the fabulous Rosewood Hotel. On arrival we were upgraded two classes to an Executive King (suite?). Do they say that to all their guests? I don't know, but the room was as opulent as any we've stayed in. I thought I only started hearing about it a few years ago, and sure enough Carol-Ann from the Neon Agency who organised the event told us the building on High Holborn was formerly the Pearl Assurance HQ till it was reborn five years ago as the 5* Rosewood.

    Carol-Ann had a goodie bag each for us with toiletries, chocs and my favourite, a moleskin notebook which will replace the £1.50 post-it type pad from Asda which I recently used up!

    I had been a little bit wary of the one-hour get-together with members of the ITV drama teams. What questions could we think of to ask the panel? I needn't have worried. This hour was the highlight of our trip and I wish it had been 3 hours; the time flew and the panel seemed to be enjoying themselves so much that we only had about 5 to 10 minutes at the end for questions.

    Each of the panel played his/her part in entertaining us. The chair-lady of the session was Victoria Fey who is Chief Drama Commissioner for ITV, and we met teams from Broadchurch and Endeavour covering production, directing and writing, and the most recognisable to most of us - Shaun Evans - Mr. Endeavour himself! We found it really disconcerting to find that out of character Shaun doesn't have that let's say "Oxford" type accent we hear on TV, but rather a true Liverpudlian accent. The panel were people obviously at the top of their profession who absolutely loved their work, and the hour flew by.

    Carol-Ann and Hannah from Neon looked after us all well, and took care of all dinner and travel expenses. We had so much to thank them and the ITV Drama team for. A lovely prize.

    Sounds amazing - comping often gives us the opportunity to experience delights we would never otherwise be fortunate enough to enjoy.

    SEAT today announces the launch of a first-of-its-kind idents campaign: ‘Missing Car’. As sponsors of ITV mystery drama, SEAT have created mini mystery dramas of their own, in a series of idents. Concepted and produced by MullenLowe London and MullenLowe Profero, each ident is a sequential clue in a mystery about a missing SEAT Ateca.

    For each of the ITV mystery dramas: Broadchurch, Vera and The Level, SEAT has created an accompanying mystery drama in idents, set in locations from the TV series. For Broadchurch, a SEAT Ateca is left abandoned in the Jurassic coast. For Vera a SEAT Ateca goes missing in the wilds of Northumberland. And for the new series, The Level, a kidnapping leads to a missing SEAT Ateca in the Brighton area.
