Warp Films in development investment plan with Matriarch Productions

Warp Films are set to bolster its rich pool of established talent, attracting hugely respected names from the industry, as they confirm plans to support and invest in the very best of global creatives.

Hannah Walters & Stephen Graham:

“Having worked with Warp Films for years and having known Mark Herbert for such a gloriously lengthy time it feels like this Warp Films/Matriarch co-production is an absolute marriage made in heaven. We have such similar tastes, enthusiasm for projects and a core belief of providing opportunities that we feel thrilled and excited to work together and we can’t wait to bring audiences the many selected projects we will be collaborating on.”

Warp Films, has today announced new development investment plans with Matriarch Productions, working with co-founders, BAFTA-nominated actor Stephen Graham and actor-producer wife Hannah Walters, on several new projects.

BAFTA-nominated actor Stephen Graham who is no stranger to Warp Films from his 2007 breakout role as Andrew “Combo” Gascoigne in the award-winning film then TV series, This is England, is already working on a number of development projects with the indie production company, alongside his co-founder of Matriarch Productions and actress-producer wife, Hannah Walters.

Warp Films and Matriarch Productions, who recently produced the BAFTA and BIFA-nominated one shot feature film Boiling Point, both have a commitment to tell stories that engage and support talent on and off screen, and projects developed through the new partnership will be co-produced by the two companies.

Warp Films CEO, Mark Herbert:

“I have known Stephen and Hannah for almost 20 years and have always known that our tastes and passion for good storytelling are aligned. I’m delighted that we can develop new shows with them both and we already have some amazing ideas to add to our slate. It also helps that we are all really nice too…”

Always recognised as a home for exciting creative talent, Warp Films, who joined the C4 indie growth fund last year, are set to support the vision for the passion projects of many more creatives, with Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake, Adult Material) working on a development script and more names to be announced imminently.

For over two decades, Warp Films have etched their story-telling slate in history; notorious for sharing global stories with a very British perspective which are bold, authentic, maverick, and rebellious – but always laced with integrity.

Warp Films Chief Creative Officer, Emily Feller:

“Since joining Warp Films I have been blown away by the number of incredible relationships they sustain. As our slate grows, we absolutely need to support our home-grown talent in telling stories, sharing their worlds, and curating ideas to make brilliant British drama with global appeal. We will support them in any role they want to progress; producing, direction, writing, as we move forwards together to create something special.”
