True North now the UK’s biggest regional ‘True Indie’ according to Broadcast Indie Survey 2014

True North named No.2 Popular Factual Producer in UK

42% YoY rise to £10million+ turnover propels company up 14 places in overall chart to become 58th biggest Indie in UK

True North, the Leeds based TV Production Company behind shows including MTV’s The Valleys and More4’s hit property show Building The Dream, has today being ranked the UK’s biggest regional ‘True Indie’ in the Broadcast Indie Survey 2014. In a year which has seen turnover grow 42% from £7.1 million in 2013 to £10.1 million in 2014, True North is the only fully independent indie with headquarters in England to feature in the Top Ten Regional Indies list.


To top off a fantastic year for the company which has delivered a third series of runaway success The Valleys for MTV and hit new property series Building The Dream for More4, the commissioning of a second series of Junior Vets for CBBC has also helped to propel the company to the No.2 spot in the list of Top Popular Factual producers in the UK.


In a list looking at turnover of over 150 Indies nationwide, True North has jumped 14 places over last year’s results to No. 58 in the overall rankings, thanks to a period of year-on-year revenue growth leading to the company breaking through the £10million turnover mark for the first time.


Marc Allen, Managing Director at True North, commented on the results saying: “Thanks to the hard work of the creative teams here, True North has always been highly regarded as a producer of first rate television, while the past 12 months of exceptional growth has well and truly put us on the map as a major player in the UK Indie sector. We’ll not stop here though; in fact everyone is more determined than ever to keep building on the great work that continues to be generated.”


Creative Director and founding partner Jess Fowle, added: “With shows including the irrepressible The Valleys and inspiring property series Building The Dream for More4, through to heart-warming Junior Vets for CBBC and our international drive with a particular focus on China, we’re incredibly proud of the quality and range of output we’ve been able to deliver this past year. We’ve got exciting plans for next year with new hires on the horizon and a push into ambitious new areas of business.”
