The show is a follow-up to the highly-controversial TV series Benefits Street which was screened onto TV screens in British homes last year.
Cameras will follow the lives of some of the residents of Derby Road for the series which currently has the working title Immigration Street.
Love Production's Creative Director for Factual Kieran Smith has been the executive producer of Make Bradford British, My Last Summer, and Benefits Street and will oversee this series.
He said: “Immigration is one of the most keenly debated subjects in the UK right now and therefore it is incredibly important that we reflect the honest experiences of people who have settled in the UK and come to consider it as home.”
The series is set to air in early 2015.
