Shiver Brings Elvis To ITV

The King of Rock’n’Roll, Elvis Presley, is the next music legend to be celebrated by Shiver in ITV’s The Nation’s Favourite brand.

Shiver has already profiled the work of Abba and the Bee Gees as well as looking at The Nation’s Favourite Christmas Song.

The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Song will be a 90 minute special to air later this year on ITV telling the stories behind the 20 greatest songs ever recorded by the King of Rock’n’Roll from Heartbreak Hotel to In The Ghetto, It’s Now or Never to An American Trilogy.

As well as hearing from Priscilla Presley and different generations of pop stars and musicians influenced by Elvis, Shiver has talked to those who worked with Elvis from the 50s through to the 70s – from songwriters to backing singers, producers to session musicians.

The order will be voted for by a large, representative panel of ITV viewers from across the country.

The programme is being produced by John Piper and executive produced by Mark Robinson and was ordered by Diana Howie, commissioning editor, Factual, for ITV.

These 20 classic Elvis tracks have been selected in consultation with the Elvis Presley estate, based on record sales, cultural impact and significance in Elvis’s career
