Florizel Street: 50 Years Of Coronation Street Gets Its Own Show

by | 25th, March 2010

FABULOUS tale in tonight’s Manchester Evening News of the struggle writer Tony Warren had to convince Granada Television his brainchild Coronation Street was a good idea.

The bosses at Granada were not at all keen and the original title Florizel Street almost had the series flushed like the similarly-named toilet cleaner.

The show is coming up for 50 years on the box and BBC has commissioned ex-Corrie script writer Daran Little, 73, who has also been the Street’s official archivist to pen Florizel Street. Filming will start in June/July and the show will be broadcast during the autumn.

Nice piece of Manchester regional coverage for its very own TV soap.
