Bad Wolf is a British television production company founded by Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter in 2015, with its headquarters in Cardiff, Wales. The company is responsible for the television series The Night Of, Beddgelert, A Discovery of Witches, and His Dark Materials.
The company was founded in 2015 by former BBC executives Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter after leaving BBC Worldwide. During their time at the BBC, they worked with Russell T Davies on the 2005 relaunch of Doctor Who, which was made in Wales. The company name is a homage to the "Bad Wolf" storyline from the relaunched series. In 2015, it signed a first look deal with HBO.
In 2017, the company opened a new film and television studio in Cardiff, named Wolf Studio Wales. That same year, Bad Wolf's first production, The Night Of, was nominated for thirteen Emmys, of which it won five. Later that year, they also received investment from European media conglomerate Sky Group and American network HBO in return for minority stakes in the company.
The first episode of Bad Wolf's His Dark Materials was watched by approximately seven million people, making it the biggest new British series in over five years.
In 2020, Bad Wolf announced that they were working on a new series starring Billie Piper (who previously appeared in Doctor Who) called I Hate Suzie.
