BBC Worldwide ups stake in Clerkenwell Films

BBC Worldwide has increased its stake in drama indie Clerkenwell Films to 48% from 25%.

Clerkenwell Films, formed in 1998, has credits including Misfits, Afterlife, Rebus, Lovesick and most recently The End of the F***ing World.

Murray Ferguson, Chief Executive of Clerkenwell Films, said: “After working closely with Helen and the BBC Worldwide team for many years we have found them to be astute, supportive and commercially smart in what is now a rapidly evolving and exciting time for scripted content. With Clerkenwell expanding its ambitions and output both at home and abroad, it feels like the right time to be strengthening our links with such a highly respected global business.”

Helen Jackson, BBC Worldwide’s outgoing Managing Director of Content, said: “This deeper investment in Clerkenwell represents a rare opportunity to take our long-term ambitions for one of the UK’s most respected scripted production companies that little bit further. We’ve enjoyed a close and commercially successful relationship with Murray and his team for over nine years now and their slate continually remains fresh, thought-provoking and above all entertaining.”
