All3Media & Talkback Alums Launch New Entertainment Venture


All3Media has partnered with the award-winning producers Leon Wilson and Ed Sleeman for a new production company, Great Scott Media.

The venture is focused on making entertainment, comedy entertainment, factual entertainment and scripted comedy shows for broadcasters and streaming platforms in the U.K. and global markets. Several projects are already in development and a series commission has been secured for a major U.K. broadcaster. Great Scott Media’s formats and shows will be distributed internationally by all3media international.

Prior to setting up Great Scott Media, Wilson was managing director of Talkback Thames and Sleeman was managing director of Talkback.

Susie Hall has been tapped as head of development, joining from Hungry Bear Media, where she held a senior position within its development and production teams. She has a strong track record in development, holding senior roles for production companies, including Talkback and 12 Yard.

Sleeman and Wilson, joint managing directors, said: “Partnering with All3Media gives us the backing and scale to match our ambition to create and deliver innovative, returnable and scalable formats for British and global markets, including streaming platforms where we see huge new potential for entertainment and scripted comedy shows. We want the very best creative talent to find a home at Great Scott and so we are thrilled to have Susie join us and will be announcing further creative hires shortly.”

Jane Turton, CEO of All3Media, said: “I am absolutely delighted to be working with Ed and Leon. They are really talented and have a fantastic track record of developing and growing successful formats which have become hugely popular, long-running international hits.”
