Founded in 1994 by Renaud Le Van Kim, KM is a highly versatile television production company which specialises in high-quality content productions: current affairs programming, documentaries and large-scale live promotional events.
The company was 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.
KM is established as an expert in news and talk shows, with the long-running show 28 minutes, a daily success on Arte.
Now led by Antoine Baldassari, KM extends its expertise into new genres, with high-end factual content for the main French channels TF1 & France 2 (Eat Well For Less, Vets / Firemen Revealed, The Genealogists, … ) and with many documentaries for a large scope of channels (Carlos Le Chacal, Inside Lehman Brothers…)
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.
Antoine started his career on the radio, then he became theater director, then assistant director for Claude Miller or Etienne Chatiliez before moving to television as an independent director.
He works with various production companies and produces many documentaries for TF1, France 2, France 3 and Canal+. In the meantime, he creates Pasadena Productions to produce short programs.
His main productions are 24 hours in A&E, Revealed(fireman, police, vet…), Secret Life of 4 Year Olds…
