BIG WHEEL Film & Television

Big Wheel Film & Television

Big Wheel was founded in 2017 to make ambitious documentaries, factual entertainment shows and talent-led programmes.

Our purpose is to be a totally modern old-fashioned indie - characterful, bold, authentic and fun.

In a sometimes cynical industry, we are a purely ideas-led company. The ideas we have are the product of things we are genuinely interested in and passionate about.

This means that we only ever make programmes we love.

It also means we make more than one type of programme.

But everything we do bears our hallmark:

a love of big questions, a fearless approach, imagination and a sense of humour.

We believe that making TV is both a privilege and an adventure.

We work in partnership with Banijay, the world's largest content creation group for television, responsible for Ambulance, Masterchef, One Born Every Minute, Lego Masters, Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror and many other programmes.

The Big Wheel team

The Big Wheel team combines youth and experience, and comes from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Between us, we have produced, overseen, cut and commissioned hundreds of hours of television, including observational series like Educating Essex, The Hunt for Britain's Sex Traffickers and The Force, landmark factual programmes such as 100% White and The Family, popular factual such as Embarrassing Bodies and The Apprentice, and feature documentaries including The Fall and My Generation, featuring Michael Caine.

Our Work

We are currently working on a wide range of projects, including series, specials and factual formats.
