The Agency

TV Scape was founded to provide TV planning and buying services for agencies who do not have the capability in house.

We have been trading under a different name for 3 years and have built up a solid, profitable business, acting as a valued partner for our clients.

We are not a big company, but we are thinking big.

We want to do the right thing both for our clients, for our partners and for our staff, meaning dealing in an honest and open way and developing relationships based on trust, fairness and integrity.

Growth will come from 2 main areas - initially increasing our client base amongst independent media agencies and then developing a greater number of direct client relationships.
