Sky Studios has launched Transistor Films, a new, wholly-owned factual and unscripted production company headed by award-winning producer, Danny Tipping
The company, based in London, launches under the new label this week with Executive Producer Ned Parker, Series Producer Zoe Hines and Development Executive Jason Oates joining the company. The name is inspired by the company’s focus on finding and amplifying new stories for a global audience. Most recently, Tipping and the team that forms Transistor Films delivered Sky Original documentary series The Murderer & Me for Sky Crime, plus two series of the global smash hit series I AM A KILLER which instantly became a Top 10 series for Netflix upon launch.
The first project to deliver under the new banner will be a series of 3 x 90’ feature length documentary specials titled Living With A Serial Killer for US broadcaster Oxygen.
