Formed in 2000 from a core of the writing and production team behind The 11 O’Clock Show, Zeppotron has always had comedy at its heart, and a name that people find difficult to spell. Over the years we went from passing the time by pretending to run a van hire business to winning some actual commissions. Charlie Brooker’s cult website TV Go Home became a TV series as did the Innovations catalogue parody, Unnovations. More commissions soon followed and Zeppotron now finds itself with a portfolio of non-scripted and scripted comedy hits including Would I Lie to You? (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats (C4), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (C4), Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night (C4), The Mash Report (BBC Two), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC Two) and The Rack Pack (BBC iPlayer original feature film). Along the way we made Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe (BBC Four), The Law of the Playground (C4), Space Cadets (C4), Spoons (C4), A Touch of Cloth (Sky 1), You Have Been Watching (C4), John Cooper Clarke presents Clarkie’s Christmas Crackers (BBC Arts), the first series of Black Mirror (C4) and much, much more.
Zeppotron has a reputation throughout the industry for making brilliantly produced, high quality comedy and comedy-entertainment shows. The company attracts the very best talent, both on and off-screen, and pride themselves on being a company that broadcasters can trust and that people like to work for.
