ITV Studios Drama produced over 70 hours of award-winning drama in 2015. The mix of ITV programmes included period drama (Mr Selfridge, Home Fires and Jericho), adventure drama (Jekyll & Hyde and Beowulf) and contemporary crime (Vera and Lewis). Off-ITV programming included Shetland and Cradle to Grave.

We filmed across the UK and overseas – the Isle of Shetland, Northumberland, Cheshire, London and South Africa, with local crews recruited wherever possible.

We have five executive producers based in London and Manchester who attract highly sought-after writers like Charlie Higson, Jeff Pope, Steve Thompson, Chris Lang and Gaby Chiappe. And our experienced and successful development teams in London and Manchester seek creative and unique ideas to take forward and produce fantastic drama.
