The production company behind The King’s Speech has appointed co-production and co-financing specialist LillaVision to represent a selection of projects on their factual TV slate.
The partnership comes following the appointment of Simon Breen to focus on factual output for television at London based production company Bedlam. In his new role as creative director, Breen reports to Bedlam CEO Gareth Unwin and MD Simon Egan.
LillaVision will be pitching a number of Bedlam’s non scripted and scripted television projects to potential partners at the Realscreen convention which is currently taking place in Washington DC.
‘Bedlam has developed a fantastic slate of original ideas’, said LillaVision Founder, Lilla Hurst. ‘They have proven with The Kings Speech that they can deliver superb fact based drama with a punch, and I’m excited to see how we can develop TV projects as a result of this. ’
‘Lilla has a weight of experience, savvy and know-how in the co-financing arena which commands real respect, so to partner with her on our factual TV output is a real privilege’, added Breen.
