We are experts at creating and delivering innovative, high quality, returnable non-scripted series. As passionate programme makers we thrive on developing and producing programmes under three editorial pillars: Specialist Factual, Crime and Factual Entertainment/Reality with humour.
We believe our different backgrounds and upbringings are at the heart of what has kept us successfully working together for so long. We enjoy meeting people with new ideas – both on and off screen and we strive to create the most talented and diverse team of people who are passionate about what they do and are driven, just like us.
For the BBC4 feature-length documentary about the life and untimely death of a British world light-heavyweight champion boxer, Murder in Soho: Who killed Freddie Mills?
It’s been great to see the series launch on CBBC and iPlayer. We’ve had great feedback including a fair few ‘Picks of the Day’. Thanks
Jaimi and I are hugely excited to have been selected to be part of Indielab 2020 – and to be amongst such a talented group
