David Flynn, the former founder of Youngest Media, has announced the establishment of a new studio called Plegazoid. This studio is dedicated to producing innovative content with a worldwide appeal. Plegazoid has entered into an exclusive joint venture agreement with South Shore, the producer of the recent Channel 4 hit “Don’t Look Down,” to collaborate on the development and production of non-scripted formats.
Flynn, known for creating and producing successful shows like “Million Pound Drop,” “Game of Clones,” “Moneybags,” and “Small Fortune,” among others, has been working closely with South Shore for several months. Together, they have two projects in the pilot stage with UK broadcasters.
David Flynn said: “We’re on the hunt for Plegazoids, those counterintuitive ideas that nobody else has thought of. Andy and Mel and the South Shore team share my desire to launch these shows and their creativity and independent spirit make them the perfect partner to join forces with.”
Andrew MacKenzie, CEO of South Shore said: “David is one of the smartest people in the industry. He’s got an incredible track record and his talent, personality and ambition make him the perfect fit to partner with South Shore. We couldn’t be happier to be launching this joint venture with him.”
South Shore is supported by ITV Studios, which will also collaborate with Plegazoid in developing ideas for a global audience through its creative network. Additionally, ITV Studios will handle international distribution for the joint venture.
