 Sky Studios announced a multi-title development deal with Noah Media Group. “Working with our factual commissioning teams in the UK, Italy, and Germany, we’re excited to bring new documentaries from Noah Media Group to our 23.4 million customers across Europe and to viewers around the world,” Sky Studios’ Director of Factual, Barnaby Shingleton, said. 

The deal, set to include multiple films, serves as the first of its kind to involve Noah. The company is considered "one of the most acclaimed feature-length sports documentary" makers in recent years. The first joint project between the two copanies is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Filmmakers Gabriel Clarke and Director/producer Torquil Jones will contribute to the partnership, set to co-produce an exclusive slate of feature documentaries and series across a range of topics, several of which will be sports-related. “We are thrilled to be working with a partner of the reputation of Sky Studios and to be in the company of their other notable international production partners; to have Sky Studios recognize the standards of our films to date is a huge testament to our filmmaking team,”  Noah CEO John McKenna said. 

The projects are expected to target Sky’s factual channels across Europe and viewers around the world with Sky’s sister company, NBCUniversal, considering taking on the global distribution.  “Noah is uniquely placed in the market, creating premium documentaries that capture the zeitgeist and bring a fresh perspective to untold stories,” Shingleton, said.
