The agreement gives all3media first look to sign distribution rights on any of the company’s new commissions for the next two years. SLAM’s recent productions include comedy drama Bleak House Guest for Sky, starring Monica Dolan, Ian Hart and Mangan; Birthday for Sky Arts and Netflix, written by Joe Penhall and directed by Roger Michell; and, most recently, comedy Hang Ups for Channel4. SLAM also co-produced feature film Away, starring Timothy Spall and Juno Temple, directed by David Blair.
Robert Delamere continues in his executive producer role. Robin Davies, who has been with the company since 2015, is the company’s head of production and was co-producer on Hang Ups. SLAM was also recently joined by Katy Obr from Scott Free Films and served as senior development executive.
