Interstellar, the indie formerly known as Keshet Productions UK, has been bought by sister Greenbird-backed label Tuesday’s Child.
Founded in 2020 by managing director David Williams and creative director Jamie Ormerod, Interstellar initially housed Keshet Productions’ unscripted operations under a restructure by the Israeli group.
The London-based indie then became part of incubator Greenbird, which is owned by Keshet International.
Interstellar specialises in entertainment, reality and popular factual formats. Among its shows are ITV2 dating show Singletown, Dave panel show Question Team and CBBC bee-keeping competition Show Me The Honey!.
It also produces social media-first content for the likes of Channel 4, Instagram and Lucozade and has a multi-platform relationship series and animated comedy format in development for unnamed clients.
The deal, for a majority stake in Interstellar, marks the first move into M&A by Tuesday’s Child, the indie set up in 2012 by former Shine joint chief executive Karen Smith.
Tuesday’s Child, which operates out of London, Glasgow and Cardiff and its portfolio includes Channel 4’s Lego Masters and BBC1 music show The Hit List.
Smith said the companies “share a vision for high quality, high energy content.”
