What We Do

Adam Boome

CRIME IS:

  • A key subject for TV and Film
  • The most popular genre of fiction
  • An issue directly effecting us all
And yet virtually everything we watch is created by people who have no experience in the criminal world – we’re here to change that.

 

 
At Underworld TV our team of ex-criminals, crime experts and top TV programme-makers bring an insider understanding and perspective to this massively important subject.

OUR MISSION

  • To create groundbreaking content about crime with people who have been in that world.
  • To bring new voices and perspectives into the mainstream.
  • To subvert stereotypes and misconceptions.
  • To be relevant to both TV viewers and those not currently watching content on TV channels.

OUR VALUES

  • We believe that society benefits when everyone has a voice.
  • We believe that everyone can be excellent given the right support.
  • We never encourage wrongdoing but strive to understand it.
  • We believe that people are capable of change.

OUR WORK

ORIGINAL PROGRAMMES
With our unprecedented access to hard-to-reach people and stories, Underworld is in a unique position to develop TV and online content on all aspects of crime.
We are constantly developing new ideas with our creative team for broadcast on our website, TV, social media.
 
SCREENINGS WITH DISCUSSIONS
We screen our work in group sessions with people on both sides of the law to promote understanding. Please contact us if you’re interested in holding a screening.
CONSULTING SERVICES FOR DRAMA AND FACTUAL PRODUCTIONS
We work with other production companies to help them understand the subject of crime and find the right people to tell their stories in a truthful way.
Crime is our main subject but because our team includes people from a broad spectrum of economic and racial backgrounds, age and gender we can cover any subject from the point of view of a group not usually included in the media. Housing, food, health etc. – the UWTV team has a fresh way of looking at it.
MAKING CREATIVE CAREERS
We are always looking for fresh talent for our creative team. We understand that everyone needs support in certain areas, so we specialise in providing support for people with non-TV backgrounds to enable them to make top level content and have a career in the media industry. Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining us.
