Danielle Lux, Murray Boland and Janet Oakes’ indie CPL Productions has extended its multi-year deal with Red Arrow Studios.

Current and recent shows include newly announced Channel 4 quiz series Quizness (wt) fronted by comedian Tom Allen; Sky One’s double BAFTA-winning series A League of Their Own, now in its 15th season, the US version Game On! for CBS, and multiple spin-off series; multi award-winning Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes and Married At First Sight – all for Channel 4; returning comedy show There’s Something About Movies for Sky One; and multiple new series through their partnerships with leading UK talent.
Henrik Pabst, Chief Content Officer of Seven.One Entertainment Group, the entertainment arm of ProSiebenSat.1, and a member of the Red Arrow Studios advisory board, said: “CPL Productions is one of the UK’s most creative and successful production companies, and we are delighted to be extending our relationship. We can’t wait to see Danielle, Murray, Janet and their great team continue to create and produce hit UK and international TV.”
Danielle Lux, Managing Director of CPL Productions, said: “Murray and I are bound together by decades of the firmest friendship and the most creative of partnerships – these are the foundation stones of CPL. We set out to build a space where excellence is prized, creativity in all its forms is nurtured and where talented people are given the right space to do their best work. Bringing kindred spirit, Janet, into our CPL family has enabled us to further strengthen those foundations and the brilliant and endless support from Red Arrow has been invaluable. We are very excited to all be moving forward together.”
Murray Boland, Creative Director of CPL Productions, said: “Danielle and I have been best friends and collaborators for almost 30 years and I adore her. You could not wish for a better partner. She is a completely unique talent and unrivalled at creating a space for great talent to do their best work. We are incredibly proud of what we have built at CPL with Janet and are very grateful to Red Arrow for encouraging us to continue”.
Janet Oakes, Commercial Director of CPL Productions, said: “We have built thriving commercial partnerships at CPL thanks to the strong creative leadership provided by Danielle and Murray and the culture of trust and support we have created. Our relationships with broadcasters and brands are based on mutual respect, leading to award-winning brand solutions. Navigating the, often complex, deals and communication between brands, key talent, broadcasters, agencies, producers and creatives is something we pride ourselves on.”
