International technology, media and telecoms law firm Olswang has advised leading independent television, film and digital production and distribution company All3Media on its acquisition of UK production company Two Brothers Pictures.
Two Brothers Pictures was established in 2014 by writers and producers Harry and Jack Williams, and joined in 2016 by Chief Operating Officer Claire Evans. It produces high quality, critically acclaimed drama and comedy both in the UK and internationally, including breakout comedy Fleabag, and has recently announced a raft of new commissions including: Liar, a major six part thriller for ITV; Rellik a time-jumping murder mystery co-production with New Pictures for BBC One; and Hong Kong-based conspiracy thriller White Dragon for ITV, among others.
All3Media International is the distribution partner for Two Brothers Pictures.
All3Media General Counsel Donall Crehan commented: "This is an important transaction for All3Media and we are excited to welcome Harry, Jack and Claire to the group. We are grateful to Paul and the wider Olswang team for ensuring a smooth process; once again the combination of their corporate experience and media sector insight proved invaluable."
Corporate Partner and Co-Head of the firm's Media practice Paul Guite commented: "It was a delight to work with the All3Media team on the acquisition of Two Brothers Pictures. Their quality portfolio of existing and upcoming drama and comedies will be an excellent addition to the All3Media family."
