“I am over the moon to be joining forces with a team who share my passion for bold and ambitious storytelling,” says Blue. “Eleven have a stellar reputation for breaking boundaries in television, and they are the right home to develop and grow my existing slate of comedy and drama. I have always been a champion for new, original, and diverse voices, and am excited to bring fresh stories to the slate from the best up and coming British talent, whilst also keeping an eye on writers and directors internationally. With the backing of Eleven, I can’t wait to bring a distinctive range of stories to the screen.”
