London — Producer Sally Woodward Gentle, who was previously creative director at “Downton Abbey” producer Carnival Films, has set up a new independent production company, Sid Gentle Films, which is in development on a number of drama projects.
The company has been set up to produce high-end scripted drama productions, long-running returning series, one-off features and mini-series for U.K. and international broadcasters, as well as developing a selection of independent feature film projects.
Woodward Gentle, who is the founder and CEO of the new production company, is joined by Henrietta Colvin as head of development. Lee Morris joins early next year as managing director.
Projects in development are an adaptation for BBC One by one of Britain’s most successful screenwriting partnerships, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The duo has previously penned five James Bond films from “The World Is Not Enough” to “Skyfall.”
