Production 100, 2017 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Unlike the main P100 list, the Peer Poll isn’t based on revenues. Instead, it reveals the 10 most respected indies, based on votes from their rivals

1. Blast! Films
Blast! Films takes the top spot in the Peer Poll for the first time on the back of shows such as Reported Missing and The Supervet. Rivals cite Blast for being “incredibly prolific with consistently high production standards”and for “massive growth while still maintaining quality…and they have landed US work alongside UK growth.”

2. Wall to Wall
Wall to Wall bounds back into the Peer Poll, taking second spot. The Who Do You Think You Are? and Little Big Shots producer is picked out for the “quality of its ideas and the delivery once commissioned.” Another rival says Wall to Wall “continues to re-invent popular history while maintaining great brands.”

3. Minnow
Minnow again makes the Peer Poll top 10. The producer of Damilola, Our Loved Boy and SAS: Who Dares Wins is “still leading the field in docs” and is “always producing high quality interesting shows”.

4. Studio Lambert
The Gogglebox producer is king of “brilliant and innovative formats.” It is also “still hungry and always selling” and has had “success across different channels, genres and target audiences.”

5 Keo Films
Last year’s number one, Keo takes fifth place this time. The producer makes “stories with heart” as well as “noisy campaigns and inventive series.” Its refugee doc Exodus was “brave, ambitious and important.”

6 Kudos
Kudos dramas like Humans and Apple Tree Yard earn it plaudits from rivals. Kudos makes “good shows” and “has good management”. Others pick out its “great production values” and “breadth of programme making.”

7 Love
Love’s decision to take Bake Off to C4 earns it plaudits. One rival votes for Love “for having the balls to annoy the whole nation.” Another rates Love for its “ability to swim against the current and ignore the noise of jealousy.”

8 The Garden
The producer of 24 Hours in A&E, The Garden “makes great shows” and “has an impressive company culture”, say rivals. The indie is rated for “maintaining quality across its many hours of UK factual.”

9 Red
Red, the producer of Ordinary Lies and Paranoid, makes “great British drama”, and is noted for “the ambition and integrity of its shows.” Red is also cited for its “ambitious and diverse writer-led ideas.”

10 Left Bank
Left Bank has emerged as the UK’s top drama producer thanks to big orders like The Crown and Outlander. Rivals cite “the quality of The Crown” and its “great shows”. Left Bank also has “an excellent CEO in Andy Harries.”
