Leading independent television, film and digital production and distribution company All3Media today announces that it has acquired one of the UK’s most exciting new production companies - Two Brothers Pictures.
Established in early 2014 by writers and producers Harry and Jack Williams, and joined in 2016 by Chief Operating Officer Claire Evans, Two Brothers Pictures quickly gained a reputation for producing high quality, critically acclaimed drama and comedy both in the UK and internationally.
As producers they took 2016’s breakout comedy - Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag - from the Edinburgh Fringe to the BBC. Since its BBC debut the series has won plaudits both here in the UK and global acclaim following its Amazon premier in the United States. Recently it was a double winner at the Broadcast Awards 2017, amongst other award nominations.
The Williams brothers gained huge critical acclaim for writing and co-producing both series of The Missing, produced by New Pictures in association with Two Brothers for BBC One and Starz, and it has gone on to sell to nearly 200 territories, as well as being nominated for Golden Globe, Emmy and BAFTA awards.
More recently Two Brothers announced a raft of new commissions including Liar, a major six part thriller for ITV, starring Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd; Rellik a time-jumping murder mystery co-production with New Pictures for BBC One and Hong Kong based conspiracy thriller, White Dragon for ITV as well as a one-off TV comedy short When Cary Grant Introduced Timothy Leary to LSD for Sky Arts’ ‘Playhouse Presents’ series. In addition they co-produced the four part thriller One Of Us for the BBC in 2016.
Two Brothers Pictures not only produces work written by Harry and Jack Williams but has nurtured new writing talent from Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge to screenwriting newcomers Mark Denton and Jonny Stockwood who have had their first commission through Two Brothers with White Dragon for ITV.
All3Media International will be the distribution partner for Two Brothers Pictures.
Jane Turton, All3Media Chief Executive Officer said: “It’s very exciting welcoming Two Brothers to All3Media. The variety, quality and popularity of the series on their slate is exceptional and I look forward to working with Jack, Harry and Claire as they grow the business and launch new titles around the world.”
Two Brothers Pictures Joint Managing Directors Harry and Jack Williams added: “Two Brothers was set up to work with other likeminded creatives as well as to be an outlet for our own work. In All3Media we have found a parent company that understands the needs of writers and producers but also has the business acumen and international sales expertise to take our work to the widest possible audience. The senior management team at All3Media completely understand what are trying to do and we're delighted to be working with them.”
