Bad Wolf receives investment from Access Entertainment

Bad Wolf: Producer of high-end TV and film content for the global television market

Bad Wolf, the production company behind the forthcoming TV adaptation of Philip Pullman’s epic “His Dark Materials”, was launched in 2015 by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, former BBC drama executives responsible for “Doctor Who,” “Torchwood” and “Da Vinci’s Demons.”

In addition to “His Dark Materials”, Bad Wolf is also in the midst of producing “A Discovery of Witches”, based on the bestselling novels by Deborah Harkness, and an adaptation of Bernard Cornwell’s “Warlord Chronicles”, alongside original scripts from some of the most respected writers in the industry.

The Company, which has the support of the Welsh government and is co-sited in South Wales and Los Angeles, produces high-end TV and film for the global television market.

Minority investment for Access Entertainment

Launched in 2016, Access Entertainment is owned by industrialist Len Blavatnik and aims at becoming one of the world’s leading independent investors in the entertainment media sector.

Led by former director of BBC Television Danny Cohen, Access Entertainment has taken a 24.9% stake in Bad Wolf in March 2017.

This investment provides Bad Wolf with further support to fast-track its already burgeoning scripted productions and grow its business globally.
