U.K. Banner Behind Indie Hit '47 Meters Down' Launches TV Arm
The Fyzz Facility TV will be headed up by Zoe Rocha.
The Fyzz Facility, the U.K. financing and production house that scored an unexpected hit this summer with the low-budget shark thriller 47 Meters Down (currently outperforming Valerian as the biggest indie film of the year domestically), is launching a television arm.
The new company, Fyzz Facility TV, has appointed LittleRock Pictures founder Zoe Rocha as its managing director, with the executive to be based out of the company's London headquarters.
Rocha, who recently saw her first full comedy commission Borderline air on Netflix and Channel 5 in the U.K. and be renewed for a second season, will continue to oversee LittleRock projects in a consultancy capacity.
"Zoe combines great taste and talent relationships with an irrepressible entrepreneurial energy," said Fyzz's managing director and co-founder Wayne Marc Godfrey, with fellow co-founder Robert Jones adding that he has confidence the new TV arm will become a "force to be reckoned with" under Rocha's guidance.
Added Rocha: "When Robert and Wayne approached me to establish The Fyzz Facility TV, my answer was a resounding yes. The Fyzz has a sterling reputation within the world of film financing and production, and Robert and Wayne share my desire to develop high-end, prestigious, visionary drama with the best talent in TV and film."
Fyzz recently announced a sequel to 47 Meters Down to be called 48 Meters Down.
