Sky Arts in the UK has commissioned prodco Znak & Jones to make a one-off Christmas special featuring broadcaster and pop commentator Danny Baker.

Danny Baker's Christmas Hits (1x90') will take a look at the elements that comprise a masterful Christmas song, from the melody to the lyrics and from the songwriting to the performances.

The programme is the first in a series of archive-based shows produced by Znak & Jones for Sky Arts.

The special was commissioned by director of Sky Arts Phil Edgar Jones and commissioning editor for factual James Quinn. Glenn Coomber is executive producer for Znak & Jones.

"This is unlike any other Christmas list show on TV," said Coomber. "Danny's unique storytelling brings alive the songs that I've certainly overlooked in the past and serves up a really fresh Christmas treat."

It's been a busy year for Znak & Jones which has formed coproduction partnerships with Jenny Daly's T Group Productions and Danish superstar Remee.

Last year, UK satcaster Sky invested in the company, which was founded by former Zodiak USA CEO Natalka Znak and ex-Talpa Media USA boss Simon Jones. AndyDickens Andrew Dickens.
