International television, film and digital production and distribution group All3Media is backing ‘Line of Duty’ star Vicky McClure and Jonny Owen’s company Build Your Own Films.
BYO Films, which focuses on both scripted and unscripted production, was started by co-CEOs McClure and partner Owen, which specializes in sports documentaries, including Netflix’s football documentary “I Believe in Miracles”.
BYO’s upcoming slate includes ITV drama ‘Without Sin,’ a four-part psychological thriller exploring the relationship that develops between a grieving mother, played by McClure, and the man she believes murdered her daughter. It is produced by Left Bank Pictures and co-produced by BYO Films.
McClure recently starred in the ITV drama ‘Trigger Point’, which has been revived. It is distributed by All3Media International, which will be BYO Films’ global distribution partner.
BYO is also developing a six-part political thriller, a multi-part period drama, a travel show and a documentary about Owen’s football.
McClure and Owen said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with All3Media. Having such esteemed expertise around us will help elevate BYO to the next level. Together, we share the same passion for creating television and film at the highest level while generating opportunities that showcase raw talent and unforgettable stories. We are extremely grateful to All3Media for showing such faith in our vision, and we can’t wait to get started.
Jane Turton, CEO of All3Media, added: “At a time when the demand for high quality content and top talent has never been greater, I am thrilled to partner with Vicky and Jonny. We all look forward to working together to build BYO Films.
