Chedd-Angier is one of the country’s most experienced independent documentary television production companies. We have produced over 100 prime-time programs for PBS; several multi-part telecourses; and cable and corporate media projects.
The company was started in 1979 by John Angier, one of the founding producers of the PBS Nova series, and Graham Chedd, Nova’s first science editor. David Berenson, one of Nova’s first editors, is a partner.
We created PBS’s first prime-time science magazine series, Discover: The World of Science, hosted by Peter Graves; and its successor, Scientific American Frontiers, hosted by Alan Alda. Frontiers ran for fifteen seasons in the PBS national schedule
We have produced many episodes for PBS series: Nova; Frontline; War and Peace in the Nuclear Age; Columbus and the Age of Discovery; Enterprise.
We have created several stand-alone, short series: The Secret of Life, hosted by David Suzuki; Race to Save the Planet, hosted by Meryl Streep; The Human Spark, hosted by Alan Alda.
