With both creative and broadcasting contacts and financing capabilities, Grand River Productions can facilitate the required development of projects in the UK, US and globally. We look forward to working with best-in-class creatives and producers to enable the advancement of their ideas. We will be announcing our first raft of projects imminently.”
