Building on the series for SKY and with several highly successful collaborative video Ad campaigns delivered together, the union between Karma and Debby Lee provides a solid foundation stone to launch Good Life Films.

Both Karma and Debby Lee have previously developed and supplied content for leading channels both in the UK and internationally, winning Baftas and RTS awards.  Karma is also a specialist digital supplier for content and live broadcasting on all social platforms.
