Argonon makes BriteSpark move

UK production group Argonon has acquired 100% of local firm BriteSpark Films, the company behind factual series including Bad Tenants, Rogue Landlords and Nazi Treasure Hunters.

James Burstall and Nick Godwin

BriteSpark launched as a joint venture between Argonon and creative director and co-founder Nick Godwin in 2013 following Godwin’s exit from Cineflix Media, where he was head of documentaries.

It has since produced shows including Manchester’s Serial Killer for Channel 4 and Diamond Geezers & Gold Dealers for ITV.

Following the acquisition of the entire business by Argonon, Godwin will continue in his role as creative director and will be looking to build the executive team in the coming year.

The company comes under the Argonon umbrella along with firms including Windfall Films, Leopard Pictures, Transparent Television and Like A Shot.

James Burstall, CEO of Argonon Group, said: “This deal cements our fruitful and enjoyable relationship with Nick and BriteSpark. The company has become a juggernaut under our joint stewardship and our intention is to supercharge this still further. Building and strengthening bonds is an important part of our plan for Argonon and BriteSpark as we continue to make strategic investments to expand the business.”

Godwin added: “I’m excited to be moving into this new phase of our development with the support of Argonon Group. We have recently secured commissions with major broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic and it feel like this is the right time to take the company to the next stage.”
