Kids and entertainment specialist John A Marley has launched Archie Productions - an independent firm which will develop and produce creative IP for both broadcast and digital media.
Marley will originate and produce his own shows, whilst actively seeking innovative partnerships with other creative talent.
A key aim will be to forge significant co-production partnerships with new and established creatives in the UK and internationally to make original content.
The firm currently has an active development slate of properties across kids, entertainment and factual entertainment.
"Archie Productions aims to put the creative process at the core of all its activity and we are looking to partner with a myriad of talent," said Marley. "With a number of exciting projects already underway, I'm looking forward to collaborating with a wide range of companies and individuals on their content and commercial strategies."
Most recently series producer at Talent Television, Marley was responsible for the first three series of CBBC's Best of Friends and was also producer/director of series one and two of Cartoon Network's Skatoony.
His other credits include Noel's House Party, Through the Keyhole, SMTV: Live, CD:UK and the Oscars for both the BBC and Sky Movies.
