Business TV series seeks SMEs

Kalel Productions, an award-winning independent television production company based in London, are seeking SMEs to take part in a brand-new business investment series for a major UK broadcaster.

The primetime series will see a forward-thinking industry leader invest their money into several SMEs and provide their commercial and industry expertise to help each company to grow.

Each one hour episode will focus on one business, documenting the journey as the investor and the owners / employees work together to increase revenue and profit margins.

The production company is actively seeking established SMEs that would welcome a fresh perspective on their business in addition to a cash injection. To be eligible, companies should have a minimum annual turnover of £500,000 and a minimum of 8 employees.

The series is being overseen by BAFTA award-winning Executive Producer Mark Saben, who produced seven series of BBC 1’s The Apprentice, as well as the award-winning Race Across The World for BBC 2. “In unprecedented and challenging economic times for British businesses, this is a fantastic opportunity to shine a light on a variety of business sectors and the challenges they currently face – this will be a compelling series as we chart how our investor focusses on helping those businesses thrive.”

Kalel Productions, led by CEO and TV Executive Nick Parnes, have a successful background in producing factual television series for major broadcasters, including the BBC, Sky and Channel 4, with formats such as Make Me A Millionaire Inventor and Police Academy UK.

The programme-makers are encouraging businesses to get in touch as soon as possible by contacting their production team for further information via their website:
