BriteSpark Films, the new factual joint venture of the super-indie Argonon, has landed its first commission. Handsome Devils is a co-production with Toronto-based Saloon Media, set for Investigation Discovery in the US and Slice in Canada.

Developed and executive produced by BriteSpark Films’ creative director Nick Godwin and Saloon Media’s Michael Kot,  Handsome Devils explores 10 real-life crimes of passion. The series looks at America’s most notorious lady-killers, men who charm, lure and entrap their women before conning them out of everything they own or killing them in cold blood. The cases are examined using a mixture of  dramatisation and first-person testimony.

BriteSpark Films is Argonon’s first joint venture project and was launched in January 2013. The factual prodco is headed up by the the former Cineflix head of documentaries Nick Godwin.
Saloon Media, the new venture from executive producer Michael Kot, focuses on factual entertainment for world markets. With partners from Canada, US and the UK, it provides popular, returnable series and high-impact TV specials. 

Nick Godwin says that the commission "demonstrates our ambition to develop and produce high quality international programming with compelling storytelling at its core.”
