Diversity outfit TriForce Creative Network (TCN) has launched a new production company TriForce Productions, supported by drama indie Red Planet Pictures.
TriForce Productions will focus on creating quality, mainstream content, showcasing new voices and emerging talent to the broadest audience.
Red Planet Pictures will provide creative expertise, industry knowledge and networking opportunities to TriForce Productions as the start-up looks to secure its first developments.

The launch of TriForce comes as broadcasters actively seek to improve their track record on diversity, both on and off screen. All the leading broadcasters have announced initiatives to improve diversity in the industry in recent months.

TriForce Productions will focus on developing diverse content across a range of genres for UK and US broadcasters, and is already in talks with key channels about a number of projects. It is expected that Red Planet Pictures will be co-producer on selected projects.
The new production company aims to promote diversity and inclusivity in the TV industry by sourcing creative talent from the TCN’s network of talent and the development initiatives.
Led by Jimmy Akingbola, Fraser Ayres and Minnie Crowe, The TCN has expanded over the past decade to becoming a leading network of over 16,000 creatives from all walks of life and for diverse emerging talent.
Tony Jordan MD, Red Planet Pictures, said: “I have followed the TCN’s work over the years and have always seen them as a driven company, genuinely invested in the development of talent and in changing the face of our industry for the better. The issue with diversity in the industry is not a lack of talent, just a lack of avenues for that talent to be reached.  The TCN are opening up those avenues. We are delighted to provide creative backing to TriForce Productions, to help broadcasters access that talent and engage their audiences with programming that better reflects our contemporary culture.”
Minnie Crowe, COO, The TCN adds; “TriForce has over10 years experience working with a wide range of talent, helping bridge the gap between emerging creatives and the people in the industry with the power to move their careers forward. TriForce Productions will pull together all the branches of our talent development work perfectly and enable us to fully achieve our aim of offering tangible outcomes for our network. While there are other companies out there with a focus on diversity, we are the only company with a readymade pool of diverse talent to draw from.”
