StoryTerrace helps you capture your story in a beautiful book with professional writers and face-to-face interviews

6th February 2023 – Award-winning broadcaster UKTV has today announced it has invested in the UK’s leading biography-writing service, StoryTerrace, using its multi-million pound investment fund, UKTV Ventures.

StoryTerrace carefully matches ordinary people with a professional ghost-writer to turn their life story into a beautiful book. The company has documented thousands of life stories with a network of over 600 professional ghost-writers globally, many of which have been published by some of the best-known media brands in the world. Inspired by founder Rutger Bruining’s wish to have captured his grandfather’s life story, StoryTerrace’s vision is to create a world in which every life story is captured in a meaningful way for generations to come.

UKTV Ventures’ £1 million “airtime-for-equity” investment sees StoryTerrace launch its first TV advertising campaign from February 4th on the broadcaster's seven linear channels - Dave, W, Gold, Alibi, Drama, Yesterday, Eden. StoryTerrace will benefit from access to an audience of over 26 million viewers a month and in return, UKTV will gain an equity stake in the business.

“We believe StoryTerrace’s mission to preserve memories will strike a chord with UKTV audiences and people globally. The power of TV advertising to boost brand awareness is huge and we are excited to be partnering with Rutger and his team to support growing the business.”Brendan Kilcawley,
Head of Commercial UKTV Ventures
