Key Titles

Troy: Fall of a City

Wild Mercury was established in 2016 by Derek Wax, under Banijay, to develop and produce bold, irreverent, imaginative stories for UK and US broadcasters, in creative collaboration with the most original writers working in drama and comedy.

Wild Mercury are drawn to writers with strong authorial voices and to dramas that take creative risks, bringing exciting, unfamiliar worlds to audiences.

Its first productions were Humans for Channel 4 and AMC and Troy: Fall Of a City for BBC and Netflix, both in association with Kudos. Current projects include The Rig, for Amazon UK, and The Sixth Commandment for BBC One.
