Hosted by James Corden, A League of Their Own is made by CPL Productions. We have facilitated the show in both Studio D at BBC Elstree Centre and George Lucas Stage 2 at Elstree Studios.
Having played host to A League of Their Own in Elstree since the third series in 2011, Series 12 of the show recorded its eight-episode block in our 15,770 sq. ft. George Lucas Stage 2 across June and July 2017.
In order to ensure the smooth running of this complex and diverse production, we provided a full support service including studio management, engineering, electricians and scenic hands, to back up CPL’s own camera, sound and lighting crew.

During CPL’s studio residency, the production team made full use of our studio support facilities, including a production office, costume, make-up and dressing rooms, an executive viewing area, four general purpose rooms with gallery connectivity, edit suites and green rooms.

For each series, we work very closely with the CPL production team in the studio prior to recording, so they can test out the show’s extreme sporting challenges in advance. From giant water tanks and ice rinks, to zip wires across the set from the studio’s 49 ft. high gantry and rugby pitches made from multiple moving treadmills, we have accommodated various unusual and complex filming requirements across all ten series.
