UK indie Iambic Media, best known for its arts, cultural and performance documentaries, is launching two new divisions that will produce factual and entertainment programming. London-based Iambic Entertainment will be headed up by creative director Iain Thompson and further the company’s ambitions to expand into factual entertainment. The company says the division will build on Thompson’s reputation for working with celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Robbie Williams to create talent-driven formats and programming.
The second division, Iambic Scotland, will build on the company’s arts and cultural programs with a Scottish focus. It follows Iambic Media’s acquisition of highland-based prodco Muckrach Media, founded in 2008 by executive producer Andy Picheta and producer Rebecca Ferrand, who will oversee the new division.
Recent Iambic productions include King Lear for Channel 4, ITV1′s The Michael Jackson Story and The Abba Years for Five.
