Vice President, Original Series Anne Mensah said: “Setting up a team entirely based in the UK was always about being able to better connect to the fantastic program makers we have here — to provide a space for writers, producers, directors, and actors that feels local, friendly and familiar but also provides talent the opportunity to make shows that will impact on a global scale.”
