About Magnify

Magnify began with a clear and simple vision, to work with shows we LOVE, from people we LIKE.

Magnify launched in 2015 as a specialist distribution and rights management company working with producers, rights owners and broadcasters to develop and exploit rights across content platforms on a global basis. We have a carefully curated catalogue of high quality programmes and formats - and our mission is to ensure BEST POSSIBLE exploitation of these rights.

We care about the producers we represent and we care about delivering on their shows.
