Barcroft Studios (was Barcroft Media until Jan ’19) has been bought by publishing and digital media group Future.
The deal will enable Barcroft Studios, which produces premium factual programming for streaming platforms, TV networks and social media companies, to accelerate the creation, production and distribution of their award-winning original series. Recent productions include ‘Amazing Interiors’ for Netflix, ‘The Day the Dinosaurs Died’ for BBC Two and ‘Most Incredible Homes’ for Facebook Watch.
CEO Sam Barcroft will continue to oversee day to day operations of the Barcroft Studios brand under Future plc’s ownership alongside Chief Operating Officer Caspar Norman and Chief Creative Officer Alex Morris.
Barcroft Studios was founded in 2003 as Barcroft Media by CEO Sam Barcroft. The company expanded from providing exclusive stories and photography for print media brands, to producing premium original factual video content for VOD platforms, TV networks and consumer brands. The company rebranded as Barcroft Studios in early 2019.
Congrats Sam – looking forward to the next installment!
