Keshet International Buys TV Investment Group Greenbird Media

Keshet has acquired a majority stake in the British production company incubator, which owns equity stakes in television production firms, including Big Light Productions ('The Man in the High Castle'). Production and sales outfit Keshet International has taken a majority stake in Greenbird Media, a British-based group that owns stakes in various TV production companies. Keshet acquired the 30 percent in Greenbird previously owned by BBC Worldwide and has increased its own stake in the London-based firm. Greenbird, set up by joint managing directors Jamie Munro and Stuart Mullin in 2012, owns stakes and works with more than a dozen independent production firms — providing capital for producers to produce while Greenbird focuses on growing the company's business. In 2014 the group took a 5 percent stake in Big Light Productions, established by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle).
