Universal International Studios (UIS) has signed an exclusive deal with Home Team, the UK film and TV production outfit run by The End of the F***ing World exec Dominic Buchanan and Mogul Mowgli’s Bennett McGhee.
Home Team will develop and produce premium television projects with UIS for the UK and global market, focusing on championing underrepresented creatives and new voices.
The company was launched two years ago and it has been developing a hefty slate since. UIS and Home Team will now oversee a slate including Emilie Robson’s Flick, a part-caper, part exploration of female friendships, and a period fantasy series about the Warrior Queen Mother of the Ashanti Empire, Yaa Asantewaa, which is being created by McGhee along with Kara Smith and Rienkje Attoh.
“We are massive fans of Dominic and Bennett and admire their taste, approach and energy” said UIS President Beatrice Springborn. “Their mission, ethos, and their eye for identifying great talent, are why we are thrilled and proud to call them partners.”
