Signpost production arm joins ITV Studios to focus on diversity

The network production arm of Signpost Productions, is to join ITV Studios’ label MultiStory Media.

ITV said the aim was to target opportunities that combine diverse story-telling and scaled-up production.

North East-based Signpost Productions focuses on diversity and inclusion, with shows including TNT Sport’s Deaf Away Days. It will continue to make This is Deaf, for the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust, and its regular inserts for the BBC’s The One Show, as well as providing on-screen British Sign Language translations for a host of broadcasters.

It will remain part of ITV plc, but its newly formed off-shoot Signpost Entertainment will fall under ITV Studios’ MultiStory Media. It’s led by Creative Director Gareth Deighan, who will report into MultiStory Media’s CEO Tim Carter and Chief Creative Officer, Ana de Moraes.

“This is incredibly exciting. Working with Tim and Ana at MultiStory, while continuing to work closely with Signpost Productions, will supercharge our output and allows us to further place diversity and inclusion at the heart of what we do,” said Gareth Deighan.

Signpost has production and post-production facilities in Gateshead and Leeds. 

“Our shared ambition is to put on-screen disability and off-screen accessibility at the heart of our productions, producing shows that authentically, joyously and effortlessly entertain broad audiences,’ added Tim Carter, CEO of MultiStory Media.

“We’re delighted to support Gareth as he builds Signpost Entertainment into a creative powerhouse.”
