Fiction Factory are a Cardiff-based production company making high quality, original and popular drama. They have produced over 150 hours of drama, distributed their work to over 100 countries, and developed strong and successful relationships with broadcasters based on trust and a proven track record.
Shot back to back in English and Welsh, crime drama series Hinterland/Y Gwyll is receiving support for its third series. Sold to more than 30 countries and available on Netflix worldwide, the programme will first be broadcast in Welsh on S4C in autumn 2016, followed by a bilingual version on BBC One Wales in early in 2017.
The first series of Hinterland/Y Gwyll was also funded through the previous MEDIA Programme.
Ed Thomas, Creative Director at Fiction Factory, said:
"Without support from the MEDIA programme Hinterland/Y Gwyll would not have been produced. The fact that we are currently shooting our third series is testament to the massive benefit the company has derived from our partnership with Creative Europe. Celebrating and nurturing the diversity of culture and language across Europe is vital, and our partnership has given a voice to a small country, its culture and its people."
