Alcon Television Group (ATG) is an independently owned television studio and production company. A division of Alcon Entertainment, ATG develops, produces and distributes a bold and innovative slate of unique scripted content with appeal to a global market for distribution on premium subscription networks, digital platforms and major cable and broadcast networks. The Los Angeles based Company has financed and developed and/or co-financed/developed a number of series across varied genres since its inception in 2015. Its first co-production, a partnership with HBO, was the Emmy-nominated Alex Gibney-directed documentary Sinatra: All or Nothing at All. This intimate documentary portrait of the singer, actor, father, husband, and philanthropist attracted 205% more viewers for HBO from the 50+age bracket than ever before. ATG’s wholly owned hit series The Expanse, a critically acclaimed space thriller for Syfy Network created by Mark Fergus (Iron Man) and Hawk Ostby (Cowboys & Aliens), returned for a highly anticipated second season on February 8, 2017 following the show’s great success amid the 18-49 age bracket. Upcoming projects for Alcon Television Group include the animated children’s series Pete the Cat, a co-production with Appian Way, currently in pre-production based on the best-selling books to be broadcast on Amazon. The popular books-- with over 22 published installments including picture books, storybooks and songbooks-- repeatedly reach #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list for Picture Books. Additionally, ATG co-produced the upcoming highly anticipated HBO four-part documentary The Defiant Ones chronicling the divergent roots and unlikely partnership of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Each episode, set to air in 2017, features in-depth interviews with its subjects as well as with Bono, Eminem, Nas, Ice Cube, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Trent Reznor and others.
