ITN Productions will explore more opportunities in factual drama in its attempts to produce a wider variety of programming.
The company no longer wishes to be seen solely as a news specialist, and has announced it will be producing more dramas based on real-life events.
“Our biggest challenge is getting people to understand ITN Productions," said managing director, Mark Browning. "The scale of the genre and programming we do is both a blessing and a curse.
"Our brand says that we do news, but actually our volume of output says that we are a big production company.”
ITN Productions will be looking at large-scale news stories they have personally covered for ideas for their factual dramas.
“We’ve done countless documentaries on MH370 and MH17 and I can see a fact-based drama in that space,” Browning confirmed. “The Kenyan shopping mall massacre is another."
