Factual Fiction is a new Yorkshire-based production business specialising in dual genres of premium factual and scripted television. Led by Emily and Tom Dalton and supported by creative producer Chamoun Issa and experienced executive producer Patrick Irwin, the executive team brings a unique blend of creative talent and vast commercial experience in both scripted production and factual programming.
The company’s regional base and dual genre capabilities means it will enjoy a robust pipeline of commissioning opportunities. Both the BBC and Channel 4 are committed to commission at least 50% of all programming from regional producers. With Channel 4 having recently relocated their headquarters to Leeds, Factual Fiction is well placed to offer premium production capability in Yorkshire that will be in growing demand.
The capital invested by Great Point Ventures EIS will be used to set up and grow the production hub in Yorkshire and scale the company’s development slate.
