TV and film studios business, Versa Studios, is to launch Leeds and Manchester studio sites next year along with its newly-opened London site.

The London studio has just launched with a 10,000 sq ft studio space and a further 20,000 sq ft of fully accessible ancillary space including full production galleries, VIP dressing rooms, green rooms and production offices.

The studio opened its doors at the end of November, hosting ITV’s newest prime time game show, Walk the Line, a co-production between Syco Entertainment and Lifted Entertainment (part of ITV Studios).

Versa London is located in West London and is  a fully equipped broadcast studio designed for exclusive occupation with additional features including the Versa Club room.

The new sites in Leeds and Manchester, launching in 2022, will create a network that will see a combined 330,000 square foot of new, high-spec studio space.

Each location has full broadcast gallery provision and will house production offices and workshops, as well as industry related businesses from locations services through to post-production and marketing specialists.

Executive Director of Versa, Charlie Ingall said; “We are very happy to be opening VERSA LONDON Studios and with such a high profile show as ‘Walk the Line’ to kick us off. Our aim was to build best in class facilities, serviced by experienced operating teams and I believe we have achieved that. We have an expert operational team here who have all contributed to making ‘Walk the Line’ a successful production and we look forward to building on this with productions already lined up to use this world-class facility.

“Our future vision is a network of studios across the UK to meet the growing demand for content whilst ensuring we maintain the highest quality behind the VERSA brand. It’s been a tough 18 months for the industry, but we are proud to be at the forefront of providing the much-needed COVID secure facilities that film and TV needs in order to bounce back bigger and stronger than ever before.”
