An analysis of medium to large software, media and entertainment companies that have moved to Connecticut in the past five years
MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT COMPANIES
In 2018, ITV America, the "largest independent producer of non-scripted entertainment in the United States," relocated a significant portion of its business to Stamford, Connecticut. The company mainly operates out of New York and Los Angeles. ITV American is behind shows like Queer Eye and the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
In October 2018, Take1, a UK-based media company, expanded its operations in the US by opening a office in Stamford. According to the company's CEO, "Stamford is the ideal location for our new offices as it is strategically located close to New York and has become quite a media hub thanks to the state’s tax credit scheme."
