Peaky Blinders co-producer Caryn Mandabach Productions has become the latest indie to be acquired by Banijay UK.

CMP will change its name to Garrison Drama Ltd, with all of its back catalogue and future projects transferring to the new owners.

The indie’s founder, producer Caryn Mandabach, has also signed a first-look deal with Banijay UK for her separate label, Conduit Productions.

Banijay UK already co-produces Peaky Blinders through Tiger Aspect and the deal gives the parent company control of the IP and any potential spin-offs.

Netflix announced this week that it had greenlit a Peaky Blinders movie and Banijay said that creator Steven Knight has plans for “future chapters” of the show’s “universe”.

Banijay UK chief executive Patrick Holland described Mandabach as “one of the legends of the UK/US drama markets”, adding that she shares a “similarly maverick spirit” to Knight.

Mandabach added: “I know that Patrick and everyone at Banijay are fully aware of the power of this franchise, and they will continue to expand upon the intrinsic value of this uniquely wonderful IP. With Conduit, I look forward to partnering with Banijay on new and equally thrilling ventures.”

CMP’s previous shows include the 2011 BBC1 sitcom In with the Flynns and Showtime’s Nurse Jackie.

US-born Mandabach set up the company in 2006 after producing a string of hit US comedies including Roseanne, Third Rock From The Sun and That ’70s Show.

As well as Tiger Aspect, CMP joins acquired scripted labels including The Forge and Mam Tor in Banijay UK's portfolio.
