Nutopia Limited

Founded in 2008 by Jane Root, former President of Discovery Networks US, Controller of BBC2 and co-founder of Wall to Wall, Nutopia is known for creating ground-breaking factual shows on a global scale. From the company’s inception Nutopia was at the forefront of the industry, creating a new genre of television – the ‘megadoc’ – which combines epic cinematography and action-driven drama with high-end documentary and A list talent. The first of these was the Emmy Award-winning America: Story of US, which gained critical plaudits and record-breaking ratings success. The Story of Us format has sold globally in many international markets. Nutopia has a proven track record of critical achievement including the extraordinary 12-part series Mankind The Story of All of Us for History Channel; landmark Emmy Award-winning series How We Got to Now; and two series of the ratings smash Finding Jesus. Fact. Faith. Forgery for CNN. Recent broadcast successes include quirky, host-led social history The World According to Jeff Goldblum for Disney+; lavish drama-doc The Last Czars for Netflix, vividly re-telling the story of the downfall of the Romanov dynasty; and epic One Strange Rock for National Geographic, natural history/science collaboration with director Darren Aronofsky, hosted by Will Smith. Currently in production is season 2 of One Strange Rock for National Geographic and, still to be announced, premium series for History Channel, National Geographic, Netflix and Amazon.
