Who we are

At Northern Town we aim to make the most daring, entertaining and outstanding TV programmes possible.

We’re a diverse team with wide experience of the indie sector, BBC and ITV, and different walks of life.

We’re a real indie – not owned in by a bigger group, private money or a broadcaster. We think that’s an advantage. We can move fast and put every penny on screen.

Recent programmes include Statues Redressed, all filmed in Liverpool for Sky Arts in 2021. The first time in the world a city took over its statues to give them a whole new look.

Marina Abramovic Takes Over TV  an epic night of performance art for Sky Arts in 2021, that was BAFTA nominated for Best Filming category and won special commendation from Prix Italia.

We made Craftivism – Making a Difference with Jenny Eclair, for BBC4 in 2021

In 2020 we made our first drama The Sarah Maple Show, the world’s first Video Art sit-com for Sky.

In Spring 2020 in the first lockdown we made Get Creative for the BBC with Antony Gormley, Cynthia Erivo, Jools Holland, Shazia Mirza, Es Devlin, Paul Smith, Simon Callow and Rana Begum. It was nominated for the Prix Italia.

Other recent programmes include Final Say – ‘moving, candid and striking’ (The Observer) – broadcast on Sky Arts in 2019,  a drama doc with Maxine Peake The Last Testament of Lillian Bilocca for BBC4 and You Asked, Art Answered for BBC and Google broadcast in 2019 and 2020.

Our biggest commission is an 80 episode series Brilliant Ideas for Bloomberg TV – the biggest arts series ever made.

We make digital content for non-broadast clients, including 100 museums and galleries around the UK. In 2021 we worked with ART UK and BBC Teach to launch the Superpower of Looking.

We’re always developing new ideas – from one-off films and live events to formats and factual entertainment. We love working with other people, organisations, indies and anyone with a great idea.

So if that’s you, get in touch.
