All3Media Buys Stake in U.K. Producer Caravan
The production firm owned by Discovery and Liberty Global backs the company that makes documentaries, current affairs programs and factual series.
All3Media, the TV, film and digital production and distribution company owned by Discovery Communications and Liberty Global, said Monday it was backing British factual TV and film producer Caravan.
Founded in 2015 by Dinah Lord and Juliet Singer, Caravan produces documentaries, current affairs programs and popular factual series for the U.K., U.S. and international markets. Its recent work has included A Royal Wedding: Indian Style and a TV exposé on Britain’s mental health crisis.
Credits for Lord, who used to work at the BBC, include programs on Christian Louboutin and the world’s most luxurious shoes. Singer, who previously developed, produced and directed factual programming for the BBC and several U.K. indies, has credits on the likes of Channel 4's The World’s Maddest Job Interview and New York Bridezillas for WE tv.
"Dinah and Juliet have a vision for Caravan that is really exciting," All3Media CEO Jane Turton said in a statement. "They believe in high-quality, challenging and distinctive program-making and when that’s coupled with their passion, business acumen and sense of humor, it’s irresistible."
Under Turton, All3Media has been acquiring select production companies or stakes in them.
