Celador Productions, the makers of You Are What You Eat have been bought out by their existing management.
The buy out follows the sale of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire by parent owner Complete Communications Corporation.
Head of Celador Productions, Danielle Lux has led the buy out of the company she joined in February 2004 having previously held senior roles at Channel 4 and BBC where she was responsible for commissioning shows including Bo! Selecta and Friday Night with Jonathan Ross.
“This is an amazing opportunity. It’s not every day that a fistful of programmes, including You Are What You Eat, and one of Britain’s best production companies are landed in your lap. But that is what has happened to us,” Lux says. “In just a couple of years we’ve gone from being employees hired to grow the company to becoming its owners.”
Lux started her career as a researcher at Channel 4 where she worked on a number of youth and entertainment shows including The Word before her rise to a senior TV executive.
