All3Media has launched a new scripted production label, West Road Pictures, fronted by Jonathan Fisher.
Fisher recently produced “Blood” for Virgin Media Television Ireland, starring Adrian Dunbar and written by Sophie Petzal. The series averaged an audience of 1.8 million when it aired on Channel 5 in the UK and the drama had its North American premier, with co-producer Acorn TV. Fisher joined Company Pictures in 2015, and served as Executive Producer for the 20th anniversary series of “Midsomer Murders” for ITV.
Ellie Birnie will be joining Fisher as the new company’s Head of Development. West Road Pictures will be producing “Blood” series two this year.
West Road Pictures Managing Director, Jonathan Fisher said: “I’m thrilled to be launching West Road Pictures and to be working with a fantastic range of emerging and established talent. I’m particularly pleased to be continuing my association with the dynamic and ambitious team at All3Media, at a time when new opportunities are opening up for scripted globally.”
All3Media Chief Executive Officer, Jane Turton, said: “Jonathan has an exciting vision for his new label. “Blood” is an example of the sort of high quality contemporary drama series that West Road Pictures plans to produce for a global audience.”
