Sky Studios Partners with Dorothy St Pictures


Sky Studios has signed a development deal with Dorothy St Pictures to co-produce a slate of documentary projects.

The partnership will see the Dorothy St Pictures team, including founder Julia Nottingham (Be Water, Kingdom of Us) and director and producer Becky Read (Twas the Fight Before Christmas, Three Identical Strangers), co-produce an exclusive slate of series and feature documentaries told from the female gaze.

The projects will target Sky’s factual channels across Europe, with Sky’s sister company NBCUniversal taking a first-look option for global distribution.

Julia Nottingham said: “We’re uncovering compelling new stories all the time, so we’re thrilled to be working with Sky Studios to fast-track development. They share our vision for premium documentaries, and we can’t wait for this partnership to bear fruit and bring audiences more exceptional and high-quality storytelling.”

Barnaby Shingleton, director of factual at Sky Studios, added: “In collaboration with Sky’s factual commissioning teams across all our territories, we’re excited to turbocharge our documentary slate with series and feature documentaries from Dorothy St Pictures. The Dorothy St team are exceptional filmmakers with a keen eye for stories that explore society and the human condition from a totally unique vantage point.”
