Vincent TV is thrilled to announce its launch into the UK market through the opening of a new unscripted regional production company, Vincent TV UK.
5 October 2021
Key hires include Simon Shalgosky as Creative Director who will be across all operations and Daniel Brookes as Development Executive who is charged with building a slate of original ideas to pitch to broadcasters and streamers in the UK and internationally.
Although only recently founded, Vincent TV UK has already secured its first pilot for a large-scale Saturday night prime-time gameshow for a major broadcaster, with filming will take place later this year in collaboration with Stellify Media who are on board as the production partner.
Vincent ter Voert, Founder of Vincent TV, said: “The launch of Vincent TV UK is a strategic part of Vincent TV’s international growth and a chance to create shows for one of the most innovative markets in the world. Our goal is to create formats that are instantly recognisable from the moment viewers first tune in, defining in style and to always make a splash with their execution. Simon and Daniel have hit the ground running in a challenging landscape and demonstrated that the future is bright with them at the helm”.
Kieran Doherty, Joint-CEO & Founder of Stellify Media, said: “Vincent TV are the best – and have delivered two fantastic Dutch seasons of our favourite Stellify export Pretty & Single. We are made up to be working with them and with Simon on home soil. Especially on such a big Saturday night spectacular.”
Simon Shalgosky, Creative Director UK, Vincent TV, said: “As a new indie with big ideas, partnerships are a priority for us. This is why we’ve teamed up with Stellify and Sony Pictures for our ambitious debut pilot. Sarah Edwards, Matt Worthy and Kieran Doherty have been brilliant to work with and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the future.”
Vincent TV UK will focus on unscripted formats for Entertainment, Factual, Factual Entertainment and Music.
