Argonon, Godwin set up Britespark

Exec's shows include Nat Geo's 'Nazi Hunters'

LONDON

International producer Argonon is investing in a factual joint venture, BriteSpark Films, with former Cineflix head of docus Nick Godwin, whose shows include Nat Geo’s “Nazi Hunters.” Financial details were not disclosed.

BriteSpark, based in Argonon’s London HQ, will develop co-productions using Godwin’s experience in the U.S., U.K. and Canadian markets. Argonon also has offices in Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver.

Godwin, who will quit Cineflix at the end of January, oversaw content including the documentary “Manson,” about Charles Manson’s “family” member Linda Kasabian, “Air Aces” for History and crime skein “Cold Blood” for ID Discovery in the U.S.

Before Cineflix, he ran docus at U.K. shingle Wag TV, where he developed and oversaw productions for the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Discovery and National Geographic.

BriteSpark will work alongside TCB Rights, set up by Paul Heaney — Godwin’s former colleague at Cineflix — to pre-sell commissions internationally and leverage rights.

Argonon CEO James Burstall said: “We are building a world-class group of companies, where the industry’s finest creative talents are given a platform to flourish, within a supportive and collaborative environment.”

Godwin added: “My passion is creating compelling television, TV that gets people talking, with great characters and story-telling at its core; and this is what I hope to continue through BriteSpark Films.”
