We are thrilled to be developing a slate of feature films with directors such as Nigel Cole (Made in Dagenham, Calendar Girls), Aku Louhimies (Unknown Soldier, Rebellion) and Marianne Elliott (Curious Incident, Death of a Salesman, Angels in America, War Horse). We are also working with Aschlin Ditta and Douglas Hodge on their musical Meantime.
We're excited to be developing new ideas with upcoming writers and creatives such as Ali Zaidi and Nacheal Catnott, helping to develop new voices.
Within documentaries, we are working on factual films on artists ranging from Simple Minds and Malcolm McLaren, to Steve Lukather and Joni Mitchell. We are also developing a series on Liverpool Football Club with Luke Bower-Massey and Simon Hughes.
