Super-indie Banijay has added London-based drama producer Mam Tor to its stable of UK indies.

Founded in 2014 by former Cuba Pictures head of TV and film Tally Garner, the company scored a hit with its first major commission, BBC1’s six-part thriller Chloe, which was picked up internationally by Amazon Prime.

The company’s focus is on premium contemporary dramas from primarily new talent, female writers and those from underrepresented groups.

Chloe was the first series to be showrun by Alice Seabright, a writer/director who had previously worked on Netflix’s Sex Education.

The deal builds on an earlier first-look distribution deal between Banijay Rights and Mam Tor that expired in 2018.

Banijay UK chief executive Patrick Holland, who led the deal, hailed Mam Tor’s “brilliantly curated slate” featuring work from “some of the most exciting writers”.

Other Banijay UK scripted indies include Kudos, Tiger Aspect, Initial and Douglas Road.
