Magnify Media is an independent distributor who works with rights owners to develop content and license rights to broadcasters and platforms on a global basis. We work across genres, searching out the most distinctive and compelling ideas. Our slate is carefully curated: we LOVE the content we are selling, and that passion comes through in the way that we sell.
Founded in 2015 by CEO Andrea Jackson, Magnify has built a reputation for distributing premium factual content such as Malika: The Lion Queen (FOX), My Unique B & B (BBC1), The Women of 9/11 (ABC), Britain By Beach (Channel 4) and stand-out formats such as Handmade: Good with Wood (Channel 4), Doctors Vs Internet (NRK), Fittest Family (RTÉ) and Love Raft (DR TV). The advantage of a highly curated catalogue means that we only bring quality to buyers, have the time to communicate effectively with our rights owners and are able to maximise exploitation of the rights we represent.
Buyers tell us that they are pleased to be working with an independent distributor that brings such distinctive and quality content and in the last year we have made sales to buyers including Netflix, Disney+, Discovery+, WDR, ARD, RTL, SVT, YLE, TV2 Denmark, Viasat World, SBS Broadcasting, Nippon TV, Mediawan, France Television, Ten Network, Foxtel, SBS, Nine Network, TVNZ, Blue Ant, Nat Geo, AMC, Sky Arts, RAI, BBC, Channel 5 and CCTV.
In 2020, global production company, Plimsoll Productions (Apple’s Tiny World, Netflix’s Animal), fully acquired Magnify Media. Magnify continues to operate as an independent business, but with increased resource and infrastructure as well as a pipeline of incredible Plimsoll-produced content that complements the prestige titles we represent for other producers and that helps Magnify to be one of the most dynamic distributors in the business.
Plimsoll creates and produces premium content for audiences all over the world including Apple’s Tiny World, Netflix’s Animal. The internationally renowned creative team have won Baftas, Emmys and RTS awards and secured commissions for more than 70 factual series with clients including: Netflix, Apple, Disney+, National Geographic, CNN, Fox, BBC, itv, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
