about tv production
ITN Productions is the award-winning independent factual and entertainment production arm of ITN. We produce films, programmes and TV series for major networks in the UK and internationally.
Our output spans from Oscar-nominated, hard-hitting current affairs programming, to high-rating popular factual programmes for broadcasters including BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky, Discovery, Netflix and CBS.
Recent productions include the RTS and Broadcast award-winning Interview with a Murderer (Channel 4), the Academy Award-nominated Watani: My Homeland (PBS) and the BAFTA, Emmy, Grierson and Peabody award-winning documentary Children on the Frontline (the most decorated documentary in Channel 4 history).
In the factual space, highlights include Going Back, Giving Back (BBC1), Slum Britain (Channel 5) and Caught on Camera and easyJet: Inside the Cockpit for ITV. When talking about easyJet: Inside the Cockpit at the Edinburgh Television Festival ITV had this to say...
"...a very entertaining and revealing series. A brilliant strand which had something new to say. It had attitude to it. We want something that isn’t totally straight and boring.”
Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment, ITV
We also specialise in high-profile, sensitive and dangerous access, spanning elite institutions to hostile environments. In recent years we have filmed undercover and with criminals, in warzones and on police raids, in Harrow School and the Houses of Parliament, with the Royal Family and the Prime Minister.
ITN Productions also produces major series and specials for international broadcasters such as Chris Hansen's Killer Instinct (Discovery ID) and Flight 370: The Missing Links (DNI).
“It was a great experience. They turned it around really quickly and with high quality. It was a very smooth process and it rated."
Jane Latman, Executive Vice President of Development, ID, Destination America and America Heroes Channel
