Like A Shot Entertainment was created in 2011 specifically to address the growing funding gap in domestic TV commissioning. As the market leans towards a co-production, or fully producer funded model, the financial pressure on smaller independent Producers and Directors is increasing with no sign of abating.
Like A Shot Entertainment not only creates its own programs, it also works with talented individuals to fund, devise, develop, produce TV programmes under the Like A Shot umbrella and secure the best third party international distribution and secondary rights exploitation revenue streams.
We have an ethos of a creating a fair deal for our partners in terms of co-ownership of the products, deferred revenues and any returning series or format rights. It is this equitable relationship which has allowed us to work with some of the most creative and inspirational partners both currently and long into the future.
Funding for our projects has come from the founding investors as well as a number of Seed EIS and EIS funds created to work with companies such as Like A Shot in servicing the gap finance and cash flow issues facing smaller or individual independent producers.
