9 June 2020
Award-winning writer Neil Forsyth is launching a production label, Tannadice Pictures, in partnership with Objective Fiction.
RTS nominated for his BBC Four Objective Fiction drama Eric, Ernie and Me, Forsyth will exclusively develop and write content for Objective Fiction via Tannadice Pictures, as well as develop projects with other writers through the new label.
Forsyth’s credits include the award-winning BBC Four Bob Servant series and several of the International Emmy-nominated Sky Urban Myths Playhouses. Most recently he created, wrote and executive produced the acclaimed BBC Scotland drama Guilt, which saw him nominated for his second RTS writing award and won the RTS Scotland award for Best Drama.
Neil Forsyth said: “I’ve always enjoyed working with Objective, who have been a supportive creative partner for many years. This is a really exciting opportunity, and I can’t wait to get going”.
Objective Fiction, part of Objective Media Group, an All3media company, specialises in original scripted content, notably stories that walk the line between comedy and drama. They have a number of stand-out series including Channel 4’s Year of the Rabbit and GameFace, BBC’s Witless, and most recently the Netflix and Channel 4 co-pro Feel Good.
Chief Creative Officer of Objective Fiction, Ben Farrell, said: “Neil is a creative force. A superb writer who absolutely understands the way the TV industry operates, both nationally and internationally. I’m excited to be partnering up with him and Tannadice Pictures in this new venture.”
