Investment house Edge Investments has taken a stake in the indie TV prodco Antidote Productions.

The origins of the deal between Edge and Antidote stems from the 2016 Indielab program, initiated by Victoria Powell, which aims to provide independent production companies with the knowledge, skills, networks and investment they need to scale their businesses.

Antidote’s slate of programming includes the documentaries Professor Green: Suicide and Me (BBC 3) and YouTube Revolution for National Geographic Channels Global and Breaking into Prison, a short form series on BBC iPlayer.

The London-based indie production company was founded by Laura Jones (pictured, right), BAFTA and RTS award-winning filmmaker, and factual TV expert, Leila Monks (pictured, left).
