British factual production label Shiver, a division of ITV Studios, has been rebranded as MultiStory Media under the guidance of managing director Tim Carter.
Carter (pictured, left) joined the London-based production outfit in early 2018 from Warner Bros.-owned prodco Twenty Twenty, where he served as CEO since 2009.
In the 18 months since Carter boarded MultiStory Media, the company has secured a number of new and returning format commissions, including ITV’s Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs, BBC2′s Britain’s Best Junior Doctors and Come Dine with Me, Channel 4′s Embarrassing Pets, Channel 5′s Red Arrows and UKTV’s David Jason’s Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
The company is also behind the long-running current affairs series Tonight and factual entertainment format Come Dine With Me, which boasts more than 14,000 episodes produced globally.
MultiStory Media has also bolstered its executive team under Carter’s purview, with Ana de Moraes (right) appointed group creative director in January 2018 to lead creative growth with a focus on returning formats. Reporting into de Moraes are Ceri Aston as creative director of MultiStory North, and Simone Haywood as head of factual entertainment.
ITV Studios Global Entertainment handles international distribution for MultiStory Media.
“Multistory Media describes the label today – a diverse team of passionate story-tellers and entertainers, creating shows across the country for every broadcaster, and in every genre,” said Carter in a statement.
