Belfast-based Green Inc Film & Television has announced it is opening a new office in London which will focus on developing factual entertainment programs.
The UK indie which has just secured development funding from C4, ITV and BBC for comedy development is diversifying into new genres with the opening of its London factual hub.
Green Inc. has gained speed during the recession, producing over 260 hours of television in the past year including entertainment, comedy and factual entertainment programs. With staff currently working in Belfast, Dublin, London and Glasgow, Green Inc. was recently ranked third Factual Entertainment Producer in the UK by Broadcast magazine. It’s the prodco behind factual entertainment programs such as UTV’s Glorious Gardens, You’re Not the Man I Married for BBC One Northern Ireland, and Ni Gaeilgeoir Me for TG4, which sees eight celebrities shut in a house to learn Irish.
‘As a long established out-of-London company, we have always had a close relationship with London and indeed the international broadcasters, and the opening of this office is simply the result of several recent projects and developments that we are doing with them,’ says Stephen Stewart, managing director of Green Inc. ‘The broadcasters have clearly begun to realize the relatively untapped potential that exists in Northern Ireland and our aim is to continue to deliver exciting series for the network and local broadcasters that is the match or better than anything from anywhere in the UK.’
The prodco is currently in production or in funded development for BBC Entertainment, C4, RTE, ITV Comedy, BBC Comedy, BBC NI and UTV.
