Lime Pictures has teamed with Shiver founder Mark Robinson, launching a new non scripted label together, based in Leeds, Wise Owl Films.
Robinson will report directly into Lime’s joint Managing Directors Kate Little and Claire Poyser, with whom he previously worked at ITV Studios.
During his time at Shiver/ITV Studios Robinson created over 200 different series and specials for ITV, the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky and UKTV Gold, including May The Best House Win, David Jason: My Life On Screen, Last Laugh In Vegas and The Nation’s Favourite…music series.
Robinson will be joined at Wise Owl by two key producers: BAFTA nominated Stuart Ramsay (Last Laugh In Vegas, The Miners’ Strike & Me and Tales From Northumberland with Robson Green), and RTS winner Kerry Allison (Elton John: The Nation’s Favourite Song, Unbelievable Moments: Caught on Camera and Newsflash: Stories That Stopped The World).
“This is an incredibly exciting time to be making shows in the North of England – and in particular in Leeds,” said Robinson. “It feels like a city whose time has finally come; we’re determined that Wise Owl is going to be at the heart of it all, playing a key part in the next step of Leeds’ journey.
Lime Pictures co MD’s Kate Little and Claire Poyser said: “We are really excited to be forming new collaborations with great creative partners. We are long-standing fans of the intelligent, popular content that Mark makes so brilliantly and are delighted to get the chance to make shows together again with the launch of Wise Owl Films.”
