TV drama producer Kudos has led a Banijay-group investment into the podcast space, by acquiring a 25 per cent stake in growing indie What’s the Story? Sounds.
What’s the Story? is led by ex-TV producers Darrell Brown and Sophie Ellis. Its catalogue includes Body Of Proof, The Missing, and Emily Atack: Lie Detector.
The deal will also see What’s the Story? developing unscripted ideas with the wider Banijay UK group of companies.
Brown and Ellis commented: “We have ambitious plans to become the home for true crime and incredible human stories you won’t find anywhere else. With Kudos’s input and expertise, and the support and access to the wider Banijay group, we feel confident that we can realise this.”
