Vienna Blood producer Endor Productions is to close, citing the “persistently difficult” international scripted market.

Seven.One Studios, which owns the scripted indie, said it had taken the decision to call time on any new developments “with a heavy heart” and is in talks with the company’s eight-strong staff.

The decision is a blow for the drama sector; while numerous indies have closed this year, they have largely been unscripted companies, including Zig Zag, RDF, Icon Films and Youngest Media.

The company is committing to completing current productions, potentially with other parts of Seven.One Studios, which also owns UK entertainment indie CPL Productions.

These include a fourth series of Vienna Blood for BBC2 and PBS and Amazon’s Anansi Boys – a co-production with Red Production Company, The Blank Corporation and Amazon Studios.

Endor also has BBC feature But When We Dance in development and an adaptation of Tony Parsons’ novel Your Neighbour’s Wife  in partnership with A+E Media Group and Stockholm Syndrome.

The company was set up by former Bafta chair Hilary Bevan Jones, who sold it to Seven.One predecessor Red Arrow Studios in 2012. She moved into an executive-at-large role in 2022, with Carlo Dusi taking over as managing director.

Other dramas produced by Endor have included BBC1’s Restless, State of Play and Esio Trot and Fox’s Deep State.

The news was first reported by Broadcast.
