Woodcut Media, part of Anthology Studios, was named one of the fastest growing TV production companies in the UK by Broadcast in 2016. Building on that momentum, 2017 saw Woodcut Media make its debut in the Televisual Production 100 and as a Real Screen 100 Production Company.
In addition to being one of the leaders in true crime in the UK, producing Jo Frost on Killer Kids and World’s Most Evil Killers (which has just been renewed for a third season in the US on REELZ) Woodcut Media’s rapidly growing catalogue includes specialist factual series (Combat Machines, Wings of War and Football: A Brief History By Alfie Allen) premium documentaries (Cut From A Different Cloth and Mandela, My Dad and Me both co-produced and featuring Idris Elba) and factual entertainment shows (Around the World in 80 Tricks, How Hacks Work and Animal Antics).
Woodcut Media’s growth has been driven by investment from the Anthology Group, run by former Agatha Christie Productions CEO, Hilary Strong. Specializing in non-scripted programming, Woodcut is led by Kate Beal, CEO/Founder, alongside Co-Founder, Matt Blyth, Creative Director, Derren Lawford, and Anthology Studios Chairman, Jeremy Mills (former Founder of Lion TV).
