Shed takes majority stake in Renegade

Shingle specializes in factual formats, docus

CANNES — Warner Bros. Intl. TV-controlled Shed Media Group has acquired a majority stake in the U.K.’s Renegade Pictures for an undisclosed sum.

Renegade joins Shed Prods., Wall to Wall, Twenty Twenty and Ricochet as the group further diversifies.

News broke at MipTV in Cannes on Monday.

Renegade, founded in June 2006 by Alan Hayling, Alex Cooke and Jon Rowlands, specializes in factual entertainment, formats and docus.

These include “Don’t Tell the Bride,” “World’s Most Dangerous Roads,” “Death Unexplained” and “Popstar to Operastar.”

Renegade’s intellectual property will now be distributed by Warner Bros.

The shingle’s team, including new editorial director and former BBC commissioner Harry Lansdown, will continue to operate from its London base.

Hayling, Renegade’s editorial director, said: “What attracted us to Shed Media is its integrity — the sense that the quality of the programs they make really matters.

“It’s why there’s a natural synergy between Shed and Renegade. And with the strength of Warner Bros. behind the group, joining Shed is a great basis for a new phase of expansion.”
