Carnival Films is a division of NBC Universal International Studios and is the UK’s largest drama specialist. The company is responsible for the global TV sensation Downton Abbey, winner of three Golden Globes and twelve Primetime Emmy awards, including Best Mini-series. It is the most nominated non-US show in the history of the Emmy’s with a total of 59 nominations and is now in over 250 territories worldwide. Among numerous national and international awards, including three Screen Actors Guild Awards and three National Television Awards, the show has even garnered a Guinness World Record for highest critical ratings for a TV show, and a BAFTA Special Award in recognition of its outstanding global success. Downton Abbey is executive produced by Carnival’s Managing Director Gareth Neame, who sold the production company to NBCUniversal in 2008.

Founded in 1978, Carnival Films has produced many hundreds of hours of popular drama both in the UK and US, including primetime series such as Poirot, Hotel Babylon, Whitechapel, Dracula and The Philanthropist, as well as mini-series such as C4’s iconic Traffik, David Nicholl’s The 7:39, David Hare’s Worricker Trilogy as well as William Boyd’s BAFTA-winning Any Human Heart, and Peter Morgan’s BAFTA-winning The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies.

The sixth and final season of Downton Abbey is currently airing on ITV and will return to PBS in January 2016. Carnival's latest series, The Last Kingdom, is airing on BBC Two and BBC America. Stan Lee's Lucky Man will air on Sky One in 2016.

Carnival Films was recognised as best production company at the 2011 Bulldog Awards and 2012 Broadcast Awards.
