The team advises every aspect of content creation and monetization, on broadcast television, VOD, IPTV, the internet, on mobile, as apps and on tablets and embraces a ‘360 degrees’ approach to exploitation, working alongside specialists in live events, theatre, music, publishing and interactive media.
The financing of TV programmes, particularly ‘big ticket’ drama and children’s programming, is becoming ever more complex. The effective management of the process is the team’s ‘stock in trade’ as they create a seamless patchwork of pre-sales, advances and tax credits.
