Yellow Bird UK was launched in October 2017 and is led by Creative Director, Berna Levin. Based in central London, it is the UK sister company of Banijay Group’s high-end Swedish drama production company, Yellow Bird.
Working with established and emerging British writers, Yellow Bird UK is focused primarily on developing and producing premium, English-language drama series for UK broadcasters, streaming and digital platforms.
Drawing on an extensive literary heritage (Henning Mankell’s Wallander, Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy), Yellow Bird UK brings high profile book adaptations to the screen, as well as original, authored series. It is currently in production on Young Wallander for Netflix.
Close ties are maintained with Stockholm-based Yellow Bird, which has most recently produced Occupied, Hidden and Thin Ice.
