Sky Studios Acquires Stake In TTN

News Image
Sky Studios has acquired a 24.9% stake in True to Nature (TTN), one of the UK's fastest growing producers of high-end natural history programmes.

Bristol-based TTN was founded in 2016 by former Head of the BBC Natural History Unit, Dr Wendy Darke. Despite only being three years old, TTN is already delivering a number of premium factual series this year, including EXPEDITION with Steve Backshall, a 10-part series currently airing on Dave (UKTV), as well as Undiscovered Worlds with Steve Backshall on the BBC. Other productions this year include Planet of Volcanoes on PBS, ZDF and ARTE as well as a five-part series, Gangs of Lemur Island for Love Nature and the Smithsonian Channel.

Following completion of the deal, Wendy's highly recognised editorial and production team will be further strengthened and expanded, enabling TTN to tell even more of nature's most compelling stories.

The investment is the first to be made by Sky Studios, Sky's new Europe-wide development and production capability.
