Charlie Pattinson, CEO New Pictures

“I have worked with Tom for over ten years and have always found his sound advice and guidance invaluable. He worked tirelessly to make the sale process smooth, transparent and professional. The whole team benefited greatly from his expertise. This is a very exciting new phase for New Pictures.  We have a long and successful history with All3Media, Jane Turton and her team and we are looking forward to working together even more closely to grow our slate both in the UK and internationally.”

Richard McKerrow, CEO Love Productions

“We are delighted to be joining forces with one of the most exciting and commercially incisive names in the TV business. When Anna and I started discussions, we never could have envisaged doing the deal we have done with Sky, who hadn’t bought anything significant in the TV production space. Tom and his team managed the whole process from start to finish and had their fingers on the pulse every step of the way. Tom Manwaring is the best in the business. We couldn’t have done it without him.”

Senior Team, Neal Street Productions

“All of us at Neal Street are thrilled to be joining forces with All3Media, a company whose philosophy and style feels totally in tune with our own. Tom Manwaring and his team have guided and supported us through the process of finding the right partner with incredible dedication and attention to detail. They took the time to understand our business, managed the transaction with immense professionalism and it is difficult to imagine getting to this point without them.”
