Hitesh Ratna, Head of content at SPORTbible:
"When Facebook commissioned us at SPORTbible to make Beasted as part of their Match Series, we knew it was going to be tough: to say the production schedule was tight would be an understatement. The first step in making the show a reality was to enlist Loft as our production partner.
The team, led by Daniel, did an incredible job in helping to bring the project to life, working under very challenging circumstances to deliver a show that hit all the marks required for it to be a success. No request was too small, no obstacle too big. They were a pleasure to work with and their passion and hard work was evident in the final result: Beasted came in as the best performing Facebook Watch show in EMEA in 2019. A huge success we were all extremely proud of."
