Argonon Group, the independent production group, has acquired 100% of BriteSpark Films, the TV production company responsible for Bad Tenants, Rogue Landlords and Nazi Treasure Hunters.
The business, a joint venture between Argonon Group and Nick Godwin, Creative Director and Co-founder of BriteSpark, was established in 2013 and has quickly grown with significant commissions from Channel 4, Channel 5 and Investigation Discovery. It produces hit shows which include Manchester’s Serial Killer for Channel 4 and Diamond Geezers and Gold Dealers for ITV.
Nick Godwin will continue his role as Creative Director and will be looking to build the executive team in the coming year.
James Burstall, CEO of Argonon Group said: “This deal cements our fruitful and enjoyable relationship with Nick and BriteSpark. The company has become a juggernaut under our joint stewardship and our intention is to supercharge this still further. Building and strengthening bonds is an important part of our plan for Argonon and BriteSpark as we continue to make strategic investments to expand the business.”
Nick Godwin, Creative Director and Co-Founder of BriteSpark said: “I’m excited to be moving into this new phase of our development with the support of Argonon Group. We have recently secured commissions with major broadcasters both sides of the Atlantic, and it feel like this is the right time to take the company to the next stage.”
