Red Planet Pictures is a dynamic and truly independent TV production company. Founded by renowned showrunner Tony Jordan, we have creativity at our core, and are currently building on our growing success in popular drama with a push into factual programming.
With Head of Drama Belinda Campbell at the helm, 2015 started with the return to BBC One of the incredibly popular Death In Paradise - another record-breaking series with viewing figures peaking over 9 million. The show goes from strength to strength, selling to over 200 territories and series 5 ready to air early next year.
Red Planet also produced a new interpretation of the Noah story, The Ark, staring David Threlfall and Joanne Whalley, which had its UK premier in Spring 2015. Critics called it: 'Affecting and engaging', 'Absorbing' and 'Compelling'.
Red Planet continues to build on its successes, with Head of Development Judith King overseeing projects currently in development for every major broadcaster in the UK.
A new addition to Red Planet's production slate is the hugely ambitious 20 part miniseries Dickensian - a re-imaging of the world of Dickens currently filming in West London.
The company is also in pre-production for Motown Musical drama Stop! In The Name Of Love and Hooten and The Lady, a family adventure series for Sky 1 to be shot in locations worldwide.
