Production 100 2018 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Welcome to the Production 100 2018, Televisual’s 26th annual survey of the indie TV sector.

Overall, indies report that they’ve had a good year. Turnover for the top 100 companies stands at £2.08bn, slightly down from last year’s £2.17bn.

The rise of the streamers has brought greater opportunity, in particular for drama producers. The flip side of this, however, is a crisis of confidence at the main clients of most indies – British terrestrial broadcasters and US cable channels.

As a result, indies say that traditional broadcasters are offering lower budgets and fewer slots. Indies also report it is becoming harder to hold on to back end IP.

How it works
Every year, we send survey forms to TV production companies and ask a series of questions. The facts provided, for the period July 2017-June 2018, form the basis of the P100. The top 100 are ranked according to turnover. Thank you to all who took part, especially those who did not quite make it into the P100.
