all3media international & SLAM Films in First-Look Pact


all3media international has entered into an exclusive first-look deal with SLAM Films, a scripted indie that counts among its catalog the Sky comedy-drama Bleak House Guest and Channel 4’s Hang Ups.

Founded by actor Stephen Mangan (Episodes, The Split) and actor/producer Louise Delamere (No Angels, Dirty War), SLAM Films specializes in drama and comedy for the global market. The agreement gives all3media international a first look to take on the distribution rights for any of the company’s new commissions for the next two years.

David Swetman, VP of acquisitions at all3media international, said, “SLAM Films’ renowned team combined with the company’s proven expertise in delivering innovative scripted content makes them the perfect partner for a first-look distribution deal. Globally, broadcasters continue to seek projects offering unique stories and characters, with strong talent at the helm both in front of and behind the camera. SLAM Films’ productions deliver on all those demands, and we look forward to collaborating with this talented team as they continue to develop distinctive projects in partnership with the industry’s best creatives.”

Mangan added: “We are so delighted to be teaming up with all3media international. They are a company with a fantastic track record who are involved in some of the most exciting television programs out there. We are thrilled to be partnering with them to help develop and nurture SLAM’s slate of comedy and drama projects.”
