Lee & Thompson has advised Ringside Studios on securing a significant investment into newly launched production company Ringside Studios, a joint venture between renowned UK producer Gub Neal and Newen, a leading French production and distribution group owned by TF1.

The new venture will develop both original English and international dramas that may be distributed by Newen. Gub Neal, who produced shows including “The Fall”, “Cracker” and “Prime Suspect”, commented: “We will be able to collaborate with teams from Belgium, Scandinavia, France, all over, to create an alternative to the US conglomerates.”

DoveTale Media helped to broker the investment deal.
