Green Bay, Vox in Drama Partnership

7th July 2009

Vox - set up by executive producer and former BBC Wales Head of Talent Maggie Russell and writer/director Pip Broughton - will bring a slate of developed projects which they'll market under the Green Bay umbrella to the UK networks and internationally. The slate includes both contemporary and period drama, original scripts and adaptations.

Green Bay's Creative Director Phil George said "Maggie and Pip bring a wealth of experience and talent to reinvigorate our drama proposition. We're excited by the originality of their approach to production, as well as by the freshness, quality and depth of the writing. And their contact base across the whole range of UK drama production and commissioning gives us enormous confidence that we'll be moving rapidly into production on a number of fronts."

Maggie Russell's extensive track-record in network drama includes the Emmy-award winning ‘The Magician's House' (BBC1); the Bafta winner ‘Pleasure Beach' (BBC2); and the RTS winning biopic of Aneurin Bevan ‘Food for Ravens'. For BBC Wales, she executive produced the long-running drama series ‘Belonging' and the hit comedy ‘High Hopes'.

Pip Broughton's credits include RTS winner ‘Young Dracula' (BBC1); ‘Blue Murder' (ITV); and ‘Soft Sand Lucy' and ‘Blood on the Dole' (C4) Pip is currently directing a ground-breaking live television drama for Sky.

Maggie Russell commented, "Right now, the opportunities are there for Welsh indies to make a real mark in network TV drama, so this is a great moment to be joining forces with Green Bay whose reputation for quality and delivery is well-established across the UK and beyond."
