Established in 1998 as Shed Productions, Shed floated on AIM (Alternative Investment Market) in March 2005. The group has grown significantly since floatation and to date, four award-winning media companies: Ricochet, Twenty Twenty, Wall to Wall and Outright Distribution have all joined the group.
To date, the Group has been commissioned to produce in excess of 2,600 hours of programming. Outright Distribution, Shed Media’s wholly owned distribution company, exploits the Group’s content worldwide.
Shed was established in 1998, specialising in producing long-running returnable drama including Waterloo Road, Bad Girls and Footballers' Wives. In March 2005, the company listed on AIM (Alternative Investment Market).
In November 2005, Shed acquired Ricochet, a leading production company specialising in factual entertainment. Ricochet created and produces global brand Supernanny. Other programmes include: Extreme Dreams, It's Me or the Dog, Breaking into Tesco and Blood, Sweat and T-shirts.
Shed acquired Outright Distribution (formerly Screentime Partners) in September 2006. The acquisition was a strategic move in order to maximise exploitation of the Group’s IP through its own in-house distribution company, whilst growing third-party business.
Shed acquired Wall to Wall in November 2007. A multiple BAFTA winner, Wall to Wall produces long-running brands including BBC One's Who Do You Think You Are? and New Tricks. Reality dramas include: 1940’s House and Frontier House. Docu-dramas include: The Day Britain Stopped and Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story.
