Beryl Vertue, the executive producer of Sherlock and founder of its production company Hartswood Film, will be given the inaugural lifetime achievement award at the 2015 Edinburgh International Television Festival in August.
Vertue will also give a keynote address at the festival, due to run August 26-28.
“We’re thrilled that the inaugural recipient of this award is Beryl Vertue, in recognition of the enormous impact Beryl has made on the TV industry, both in the U.K. and around the world,” the festival said in a statement.
“Beryl has worked with everyone from [Ray] Galton and [Alan] Simpson and The Goons, to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and founded Hartswood Films, which has been responsible for producing a raft of hits from Men Behaving Badly to Sherlock. She has also recently produced, with Serena Cullen, the forthcoming adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, written and directed by Jed Mercurio.”
