Production 100, 2016 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Welcome to the Production 100 2016, Televisual’s 24th annual survey of the independent TV production sector.

The top flight of indies is dominated by drama producers this year, who have been buoyed by the rise in demand for big budget scripted content. This has helped push up the combined turnover of the top 100 indies from £1.77bn to £1.94bn.

The high profile indie takeovers that have driven consolidation in the sector over the past decade have slowed this year. Rather, big production groups are now funding ambitious start ups. A flurry of new indies have launched in the past 12 months, many seeking riches in the drama world. Little wonder that many producers say the TV business is getting ever more competitive.

How it works

Every year, we send survey forms to TV production companies and ask a series of questions. The facts provided, which relate to the period July 2015-June 2016, form the basis of the Production 100. The top 100 are ranked according to the turnover of their UK operations.
