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 Murder at My Door with Kym Marsh, Killer in my Family and hit crime franchise World’s Most Evil Killers, Woodcut Media’s rapidly growing catalogue includes specialist factual series (Combat Ships, Secret History of World War II and Tony Robinson’s V.E Day: Minute by Minute) premium documentaries (Fiennes: Return To The Nile, 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 Paranormal Captured).

Woodcut Media’s shows have also proven popular internationally with the likes of Reelz and Smithsonian in the US, SBS in Australia, RTL and ProSieben in Germany, Histoire, RMC Decouverte and Canal + in France and Netlfix globally to name but a few.

The company’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 Media is led by Kate Beal, CEO/Founder, alongside Co-Founder, Matt Blyth, Creative Director, Derren Lawford, and Head of Production, Jenni Day.

Established in September 2020, UK based Woodcut International is the distribution division of Woodcut Media (a member of the Anthology Group of businesses).  

Woodcut International focuses on the global sales of a programme catalogue of approximately 100 hours of selected Woodcut Media series such as The Beverley Allitt Tapes (Sky Crime UK) and library titles that include The Ivy, Defenders of the Sky, Football: A Brief History by Alfie Allen, and Murders That Shocked the Nation. 

As Woodcut Media continues to ramp-up activities and further extend its reach internationally, the formation of this sales division comes off the back of an unprecedented increase in direct pre-sales and co-funding deals with leading broadcasters worldwide over the past couple of years. 

Outside of Woodcut International’s sales activities, Woodcut Media also continues to work with existing and new third-party distributors on various other in-house productions.

In December 2020 Woodcut Media merged with Spark TV to launch Woodcut West. The newly merged business is dedicated to the development and production of natural history and specialist factual programming for the UK and international market. Woodcut West is based out of Bristol and is spearheaded by award winning executive producer Paul Wooding.
