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 drama with the recent launch of a factual division.
This autumn sees the launch of Red Planet Pictures and Sky One's hotly anticipated new show Hooten & The Lady. With filming taking place in locations worldwide such as South Africa, Moscow and Cambodia, this rip-roaring eight part series takes us around the globe in search of adventure; through jungles, deserts, underground shrines and ancient temples and is set to deliver excitement on a truly epic scale.
This year also welcomes a brand new factual commission from Red Planet Pictures and Channel 5, Secrets of the SAS: In Their Own Words. The series takes a new approach to exploring the world of the SAS, focusing on the soldiers themselves, rather than just their audacious exploits, to reveal the frank and intimate truth of life serving, and surviving, in the SAS, starting August on Channel 5.
The ever-loved favourite Death in Paradise is currently filming it's sixth series in the Caribbean. Earlier this year the show enjoyed record-breaking audiences, which peaked over 8.7 million viewers. The show goes from strength to strength, selling to over 200 territories and Series Six promises more mystery, sun, sea, sand and of course murder!
Recent productions also include the ambitious and critically acclaimed 20-part drama Dickensian, a studio drama that brings together iconic characters from Charles Dickens' most famous works and The Passing Bells, the BBC's flagship centenary drama commemorating the start of the First World War, charting the course of a conflict that cost millions of lives and reshaped the map of the world.
New productions for 2017 include Motown musical Stop! In The Name Of Love, a 4 x 60' drama for BBC1, that goes into production in the new year.
