With the average British viewer watching 20 hours or more a week, TV continues to be one of the most popular forms of entertainment available.

To meet the demand for television and other creative sector content, the UK government has put in place a series of creative sector tax reliefs for film, high-end television, animation, children’s television and video games.

TV shows we’ve worked on include:

  • Beyond Paradise,
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,
  • Sex Education, and
  • House of the Dragon.
