ABOUT BBC STUDIOS - AMERICAS

WHO WE ARE

BBC Studios is a global content company responsible for highly addictive television programming loved by millions around the world.

BOLD. BRITISH. CREATIVE.

BBC Studios is a champion of, and home to, the very best of British creativity.  We are an unrivaled creator of, and investor in, programs that reach audiences across the globe by combining three areas: the strengths of the UK’s most-awarded production company and thriving independent production community, world-class distribution capabilities, and in-region, on-the-ground know-how and expertise.

IN THE AMERICAS

We are a one-stop shop for our local clients – able to touch every aspect of the value chain. Our production arm develops and produces originals and much-loved British formats, while our distribution business focuses on strategic partnerships, content sales, co-productions, home entertainment, consumer products, and education. Our principal mission is to bring audiences in the U.S., Latin America, and Canada the distinctly British and fresh, new voices they crave. We recently launched BBC SELECT in the U.S. and Canada, an ad-free, digital streaming channel offering all-new documentaries on culture, politics, and ideas, on Amazon Prime Video Channels and the Apple TV app.

We have team members spanning North and South America in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Miami, and São Paulo – with a key production base in Los Angeles, which is responsible for long-running and Emmy® award-winning series Dancing with the Stars and the Life Below Zero trio of franchise shows, along with Weakest Link, hosted by Jane Lynch; Call Me Kat, starring Mayim Bialik; Breaking Bobby Bones; and the all-new Top Gear America, featuring Dax Shepard, Rob Corddry, and Jethro Bovingdon.
