Brown Bob, the London-based indie founded in 2013 by Jacqueline Hewer and Nicki Gottlieb, has confirmed it is expanding with the opening of its Cardiff base, Brown Bob Cymru.

The indie has produced shows from fixed-rig factual (Inside the Ambulance for W) to access projects (The Secrets of the London Underground for Yesterday) and to high volume returning crime for BBC.

Hewer and Gottlieb’s ambition for their Welsh base, is to “make a significant contribution to the Welsh production sector by working with key broadcasters and talent to contribute to the thriving creative industry in Wales.”

Brown Bob Cymru has already secured 30 hours of confirmed productions.  It will be concentrating on growing relationships with BBC Wales and S4C and “look forward to working with commissioners from all terrestrial channels to help bring Welsh stories alive.”

Hewer and Gottlieb said: “We are very excited about the opening of Brown Bob Cymru, our latest base, in Cardiff.  Wales is an incredible country, and we are very much looking forward to being part of the production community and creating content that reflects and celebrates Welsh pride and passion.
