Endemol Shine UK has launched a new scripted production label, Bandit Television, which will be run by BBC drama exec Phillippa Giles.

Giles will oversee the new venture as managing director. She has worked at the BBC for over 25 years, executive producing Luther and Silent Witness.

Bandit Television will create and produce original dramas for the UK market, which will be distributed globally by Endemol Shine International.

“Phillippa is an exceptionally talented producer with a strong track record and vision for successful procedural dramas,” said Richard Johnston, CEO of Endemol Shine UK. “The launch of Bandit Television further signifies our commitment to creating a diverse slate of world class scripted content for the worldwide audience.”

"Over my years at the BBC I’ve developed many important relationships, and had a lot of fun along the way. At Bandit, I plan to continue to embrace the same wealth of talent but also open the doors to new voices, taking advantage of the range of opportunities now open to me,” said Phillippa Giles “The scope for drama going forwards is vast and with the global backing of Endemol Shine, I am ready for the challenge."

Giles’ other credits include Our Mutual Friend, Jane Eyre, The Alan Clark Diaries and Emma. She also won a BAFTA in 1990 with her first producer credit on serial Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit.

Bandit Television joins Endemol Shine UK’s portfolio of drama production labels which includes Artists Studio (The Fall), Brown Eyed Boy (Vicious) Fifty Fathoms (Fortitude), House of Tomorrow (Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror), Kudos (Broadchurch), Lovely Day (Grantchester) and Tiger Aspect (Peaky Blinders) as well as the recently launched Cave Bear Productions.
