Founded in 1994 by Renaud Le Van Kim, KM is a highly versatile television production company which specializes in high-quality content productions: current affairs programming, documentaries and large-scale live promotional events. The company is originally known for producing France’s best-rated daily talk show Le Grand Journal on Canal+ which featured interviews with Hollywood celebrities and senior French politicians for over 10 years.
Now led by Frédérick Lacroix, KM remains an expert in news and talk shows, with two daily shows: La Nouvelle Edition (C8) and 28 minutes (Arte). In addition to this, KM is now extending its expertise into new genres, with high-end documentaries and factual content using high-technology devices: Vets and Firemen Revealed or The Secret Life of 4 year Olds on the main French channel TF1.
KM works closely with Michel Denisot, one of the most famous and statutory French hosts, to produce high quality shows such as Conversations Secrètes and Le Journal de Cannes. Among KM’s most successful productions are also the annual glamorous opening and closing ceremonies of the Cannes Film Festival, and the French national film awards La Nuit des César.
As a senior international reporter, Frédérick Lacroix started as a producer of magazines and documentaries. He received two Special Mention in the Scoop Festival of Angers and was nominated for the Albert Londres Prize. In 2004, he joined Fremantle Media France and founded the press agency TV presse. Seven years later, he was recruited by Shine France to lead the Documentaries & Magazines Department, as well as being director of the press agency Presse & Co. In 2014, he joined Zodiak France as Head of Documentaries & Magazines, before being nominated Chairman of KM in January 2016.
