Passion Enters Exclusive Pact with Lambent


Passion Distribution has struck an exclusive partnership deal with Lambent Productions.

The two-year deal will see Passion Distribution sell Lambent titles internationally as well as secure presales and source funding and co-production partners for Lambent’s shows. Lambent specializes in factual programming, among which are the recent productions Addicted Parents: Last Chance to Keep My Children for BBC Two and the Clare Balding doc When Football Banned Women.

Emmanuelle Namiech, the CEO of Passion Distribution, said: “When the opportunity to work with the talented Lambent team came up, we simply couldn’t resist. We are excited to partner with Emma and Ollie and support their international strategy and further boost Passion Distribution’s growing factual and factual-entertainment slate. Lambent’s production and development slate is rich and vibrant, packed full of unique perspectives on fascinating people and stories—and therefore a perfect fit for Passion.”

Ollie Tait, the managing director at Lambent Productions, added: “Passion Distribution share our ambition for Lambent and understand our unique take on the kind of ideas, access, people, and stories that we think will make great TV. We’re really pleased to be working with Emmanuelle and Jimmy at such an exciting time for Passion Distribution, and as we build on our recent international growth, we know this will be a fruitful and rewarding partnership.”
