Brenman leaving drama at Tiger Aspect to set up indie
30 July 2012
Greg Brenman, the head of drama for Tiger Aspect is leaving the production company to set up his own indie.
Brenman launched the drama department at the indie in 1996. During his tenure as head of drama, Tiger Aspect has made Robin Hood for BBC One and Secret Diary of a Call Girl for ITV. He also produced feature films including Billy Elliot. Current projects include Ripper Street for BBC One and Prisoner’s Wives (pictured), as well as My Fat Mad Teenage Diary for E4.
“Since Endemol bought Tiger Aspect two and a half years ago the collaboration has resulted in one of the drama department’s most successful periods,” says Brenman. “The only reason I would leave at this time is to meet the irresistible challenge of setting up my own company. Tiger Aspect’s reputation for being a great place to work is all true and it has been a very important part of my life, which of course has made my decision that much harder. “
Brenman will leave at the end of the year. Tim Hincks, chairman of Endemol UK, said: “For now Greg continues to oversee Tiger’s line-up of eagerly anticipated drama projects but when the time comes at the end of the year we’ll be very sorry to see him go.”
