Bryncoed Productions Embarks on Development Push


Bryncoed Productions has made its first senior hire since officially opening its doors, tapping Emma Yap as development producer.

Yap joins Bryncoed from NBCUniversal, where she served as a global acquisitions executive. Yap’s appointment is a key move in the creative strategy for Bryncoed, which was founded by drama producer Foz Allan. His recent credits include Sky Atlantic’s Riviera and ITV’s Jekyll and Hyde.

Yap said: “I wanted to challenge my abilities in a company that values creative courage, but is backed by experience and knowledge. Bryncoed’s development slate is filled with enthralling ideas, talent and innovation. This is the start of a new creative adventure and I’m honored to be part of it.”

Allan added: “We are delighted to have attracted the dynamic and articulate Emma. We want Bryncoed to be synonymous with smart, accessible, drama with an emphasis on series for premium broadcasters and platforms. Our first major project is set to go into production, with exceptional writing, acting and production talent attached. Emma’s energy, vision and ambition will help us to create the next wave of brave creative projects.”
