Founded by Dimitri Doganis in 2001, Raw, part of the All3Media family, has enjoyed a string of successful series and one-offs in the documentary and unscripted genres over the past two decades, including Discovery’s long-running unscripted hit Gold Rush and Locked Up Abroad, now in its 12th season for National Geographic.
For CNN, the London-based prodco has produced a slew of series including the politically charged Race for the White House, American Dynasties: The Kennedys and the upcoming The Bush Years. The prodco also added its deft touch with political content to History via the recent Presidents at War.
In the UK, Raw’s television credits include the acclaimed, Grierson Award-winning Chris Packham: Asperger’s and Me, Drowning in Plastic and ITV’s long-running Heathrow: Britain’s Busiest Airport.
The company’s feature work also garnered accolades in 2018, as Three Identical Strangers from director Tim Wardle took the 2018 Sundance Film Festival jury prize for storytelling in the U.S. documentary competition. Raw currently has three films slated for production this year and nine more in funded development, including the narrative adaptation of its Sundance hit. SC
