Wall to Wall, a Shed Media Group company, has had great success with genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are in the UK and various other territories. Now Wall to Wall has teamed up with Lisa Kudrow’s production shingle, Is or Isn’t Entertainment, to bring the series to America. While at the Realscreen Summit, the prodco’s CEO, Alex Graham, spoke with realscreen about revamping the series for an American audience and why NBC took a big risk when it greenlit the program. It’s a risk that appears to be paying off – according to Nielsen overnights, the airing of the second episode of the series this past Friday brought NBC just behind ratings leader CBS for the night.
