Fulwell 73 has been crowned multichannel production company of the year at the Broadcast Digital Awards for an international slate of shows that span CBBC, Amazon, Netflix and more.

The accolade recognised the huge success of the company’s coup in delivering Friends: The Reunion, which became HBO Max’s biggest unscripted show to date and in the UK delivered Sky’s best ratings in 15 years.

Fulwell 73 beat rivals Future Studios, LAD Studios, Lime Pictures, Monkey and Strawberry Blond TV to the prize.

Other successes include You Tube Originals format Hometown Showdown, series six of CBBC’s Got What It Takes, and All or Nothing: Juventus for Amazon Prime. Its linear channel hits include ITV’s An Audience with Adele.

Based in London, Los Angeles and Sunderland, Fulwell 73 was set up in 2005 by childhood friends Ben Winston, Leo Pearlman, Ben Turner and Gabe Turner, with James Corden later joining as a fifth partner.

It recently announced that Corden’s CBS series The Late Show with James Corden, was ending after seven years.

Meanwhile, its first true-crime doc, DB Cooper: Where Are You?!, lands on Netflix on 13 July.

At last night’s ceremony, director Robb Leech picked up the best short-form documentary award for Rare TV’s three-part BBC3 series Tagged: Women on Tag, while Alba Sotorra’s Sky Documentaries film The Return: Life After ISIS, a co-production between her company Alba Sotorra Productions and Met Film, was named best documentary programme.

Boom’s Dave show Big Zuu’s Big Eats capped its recent Bafta win with a best popular factual award.
