Greenlit Rights, one of Britain’s most high profile producers, has made four staff redundant following the sale of parent company Target Entertainment. The producer is a regular ITV supplier, making Second World War drama Foyle’s War for the network and miniseries Collision. Its latest BBC2 miniseries Vexed, starring Toby Stephens and Lucy Punch, started its three-week run on Sunday. Company founder Jill Green – married to Stormbreaker author Anthony Horowitz, who created Foyle’s War — left Greenlit a couple of weeks ago. She has told the Guardian that Target failed “to comply with the original terms of our agreement relating to the sale of the business”. Greenlit was excluded from yesterday’s £800,000 sale of Target to theatrical distributor Metrodome. The new owner wanted Greenlit as part of the deal, but couldn’t agree terms. Accountants BDO Stoy Hayward are administering Greenlit. Green now wants the rights to her back catalogue back.
