Our slate spans an array of genres from period comedy-drama to contemporary thriller, but all of our projects stay true to our ethos of working with and developing stories about people from underrepresented backgrounds. We're working on a TV series about Victorian drag queens, a feature about two older female friends on holiday, and a thriller that revolves around a professional dominatrix and a high profile murder in which she may or may not be involved.
