About our service...

"I can highly recommend Simon and his team for their invaluable expertise on all things business affairs in the TV.  They are your partners in devising strategy and know how to get things across the line. Cost efficient and highly responsive. I am glad they are on our side! "

The Athena

Our work together has covered contracts with the BBC, ITV, C4, UKTV, ad agencies as well as artists, agents and publishers. The TV deals have ranged from one-off specials to 3-year contracts, small budgets to multi-millions and I have always fully trusted Simon to maximize every opportunity"

"For many years, Simon and his team have been our key business affairs advisers and we have been continually delighted with their professionalism and endlessly impressed by theirs results. Together with our in-house lawyer, they have worked across all areas of our business and have negotiated the best possible deals for us in a way that ensures a ‘win-win’ for all sides. Our deals are often done under great time pressure and yet their service never falters. Their collective experience is a tremendous asset in a world of increasingly complex deal making and this, coupled with their intimate understanding of television’s independent production sector, puts them in a league of their own."

"TVA Business Affairs helped Gold Star Productions navigate the most complicated legal filming agreement imaginable. You wouldn’t normally want to repeat that experience but TVA made it significantly less painful and supported us through a second series agreement."

The Prosecutors

"Working with Simon and Tom is like having our own off-site business affairs department. They’re always on hand to offer advice and have an understanding of the culture of our company and the values we consider important in negotiations. They make our lives a whole lot easier and we thank them for that!"

Polly Leys, Hillbilly TV

"Me+You Productions have worked with Simon for a number of years on a variety of projects including I AM – a drama series for C4. We enjoy working with TVA and they give our production company excellent business affairs support. They are fast, reliable and have strong industry experience which means their advice is spot on. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

"Simon and his team have provided invaluable assistance through some complicated agreements. His knowledge of the industry and mastery of the brief, combined with a natural candour and charm, have ensured that negotiations have always run smoothly and concluded successfully. I can’t recommend him highly enough."

The Imitation Game

"We have used TVA’s business affairs services when developing our slate and also on a number of productions (most recently the Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special) and we have always been incredibly impressed by their commitment, cost-effectiveness, know-how and speed. TVA are ‘tidy’ operators and we recommend them unreservedly."

"I have had the privilege to work closely with Simon Vyvyan and TVA on our three series of The Young Offenders (BBC) and various other projects which they have been across. I would have been lost without their guidance and expertise. Their work included production, talent and distribution agreements - they were great at not just the paperwork but also strategy, always working swiftly and efficiently. I’d be delighted to recommend the team at TVA and look forward to working with them again."
