About Us.

Fact + Friction is a content consulting company, run by
award-winning producer
Ron Carroll.
We work with creatives
in the UK, USA,
and Canada.

For over a decade, Fact & Friction has helped create content for audiences across the world.  


Our expertise is format development, selling strategy, series launches and fixes.


We have earned several major awards and nominations including a British Royal TV Society Award, a Canadian Screen Award and several American Telly Awards.


We work across a range of genres, creating content for a variety of platforms.

We have been at the helm of popular formats, including series producing 40 episodes of Undercover Boss, the hit Netflix glassblowing competition Blown Away, and Gogglebox for North America.


The company was launched in 2009.

Fact & Friction recently relocated to Manchester. We're local and global and continue to bounce over to the US and Canada for production and development projects.
We inked a deal for an exciting new original competition format with Catalina Content, a new LA production label backed by Sky Studios.

As a response to tightening budgets, and at the increasing request of clients, we now offer full or half-day creative guidance and support sessions. We can work with your existing development team in person or remotely by video conference to help shape up story, fix formats and help get shows ready to pitch...  It's cost-effective, practical and productive. We can also take a headline idea and turn it into a fully fleshed-out pitch deck, ready to sell!
