About Company Pictures
Company Pictures is one of the UK’s largest independent film and television producers.
Founded in 1998, we have produced hundreds of hours of critically acclaimed, award winning drama for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, WGBH, HBO, Starz and other leading broadcasters all over the world.
Company was responsible for period drama Elizabeth (winner of three Golden Globes), eleven series of the multi award winning Shameless, the much loved long running family series Wild at Heart and the hugely popular teen drama Skins.
Company has also seen raft of exciting projects in development and production, including a big budget six part adaptation for the BBC of Hilary Mantel’s prize winning Wolf Hall, written by Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), directed by BAFTA nominated Peter Kosminsky and starring Mark Rylance and Damian Lewis.
Following critical acclaim in 2013, Peter Moffat’s The Village returned for a second series in 2014, with John Simm and Maxine Peak reprising their roles. The same year also saw the production of the first series of The Missing, an 8 part thriller for BBC1. In Ireland, Company co-produced Red Rock – a new soap for TV3.
In 2017 we saw the immensely popular Inspector George Gently return for the final time with its 9th series. The same year The White Princess, the TV adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s historical novels and sequel to the hugely popular The White Queen was broadcast on STARZ.
More recently, Company Pictures has wrapped up filming the second series of Agatha Raisin in which Ashley Jensen and Mathew Horne reprise their roles. It will air on Sky One in late 2018 and into early 2019. Our exciting original series Blood was met with fantastic reviews in Ireland and will broadcast on Channel 5 in the UK in mid-November 2018.
From seminal drama The Lakes in the 1990s to The White Princess, The White Queen, Inspector George Gently and New Worlds today, Company Pictures has continued to produce and deliver high quality, distinguished drama that attracts the best talent the UK has to offer.
Company Pictures has been part of All3Media since October 2014.
