Suzanne Mackie has exited her post as creative director of The Crown producer Left Bank Pictures to set up her own production company.
Orchid Pictures, based in London, will work across TV and film. Mackie will continue working with Netflix through Orchid Pictures and will continue as an executive producer on The Crown for the upcoming fifth and sixth seasons.
Mackie commented: “Having spent 12 very happy and creatively fulfilling years working with Andy Harries and the team at Left Bank Pictures, starting my own company felt like an exciting next chapter in my career. The opportunity of further deepening my collaboration with Netflix presented an immensely exciting opportunity.
“I am delighted that I can continue the onward journey of The Crown with Peter Morgan, Left Bank Pictures and the rest of The Crown team whilst building Orchid Pictures; The Crown has become a significant part of my life.”
