Endeavor Content has made its first scripted TV partnership in the U.K., becoming the lead investor in the new indie from Channel 4’s current head of international drama Simon Maxwell.
The terms of the investment — or the name of the banner — haven’t been revealed, but the deal, announced Thursday, will see Endeavor serve as the company’s strategic partner.
Maxwell, who has spearheaded a number of high-end Channel 4 drama commissions including Humans, The First, Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams, Kiss Me First and Catch 22, is set to leave his current position at the broadcaster at the end of the year. As a creator, Maxwell most recently co-created and served as a writer-executive producer on Deep State, now filming its second season.
“It’s hard to imagine a more exciting time to be in the scripted television business, with the climate favoring the kind of brave, authored global storytelling that I’ve been privileged enough to work on at Channel 4,” said Maxwell.
“With this new company, we aim to apply a similarly adventurous ethos to our work, prioritizing talent relationships and providing a home and a model for the best storytellers to create their boldest work, both locally and globally. I couldn’t wish for more kindred spirited and like-minded partners than the team at Endeavor Content.”
