Vincent TV’s New U.K. Unscripted Indie


Vincent TV has expanded into the U.K. market with the launch of a new unscripted regional production company, Vincent TV UK.

Simon Shalgosky has been appointed creative director for the company, overseeing all operations. Daniel Brookes will serve as development executive, charged with building a slate of original ideas to pitch to broadcasters and streamers in the U.K. and internationally.

Vincent TV UK will focus on unscripted formats for entertainment, factual, factual entertainment and music. It has already secured its first pilot for a large-scale Saturday night prime-time game show for a major broadcaster, with filming taking place later this year. Stellify Media is on board as the production partner.

Vincent ter Voert, founder of Vincent TV, said: “The launch of Vincent TV UK is a strategic part of Vincent TV’s international growth and a chance to create shows for one of the most innovative markets in the world. Our goal is to create formats that are instantly recognizable from the moment viewers first tune in, defining in style and to always make a splash with their execution. Simon and Daniel have hit the ground running in a challenging landscape and demonstrated that the future is bright with them at the helm.”

Kieran Doherty, joint CEO and founder of Stellify Media, said: “Vincent TV are the best—and have delivered two fantastic Dutch seasons of our favorite Stellify export, Pretty & Single. We are made up to be working with them and with Simon on home soil. Especially on such a big Saturday night spectacular.”

Shalgosky said: “As a new indie with big ideas, partnerships are a priority for us. This is why we’ve teamed up with Stellify and Sony Pictures for our ambitious debut pilot. Sarah Edwards, Matt Worthy and Kieran Doherty have been brilliant to work with and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them in the future.”
