Bryncoed Productions has made the first senior hire since it launched. The indie founded by Foz Allan has brought on former NBCU exec Emma Yap as they embark on a development push.
Yap will serve as development producer. She joins the recently launched company after having served as Global Acquisitions Executive for the Hollywood studio. She joined the industry in 2013 after being accepted as a writer on the Royal Court Theatre’s Unheard Voices scheme. She has also held roles at Bankside Films and produced the award-winning feature film Making It.
“I wanted to challenge my abilities in a company that values creative courage, but is backed by experience and knowledge”, Yap said in a statement. “Bryncoed’s development slate is filled with enthralling ideas, talent and innovation. This is the start of a new creative adventure and I’m honoured to be part of it.”
“We are delighted to have attracted the dynamic and articulate Emma. We want Bryncoed to be synonymous with smart, accessible, drama with an emphasis on series for premium broadcasters and platforms”, added Foz Allan. “Our first major project is set to go into production, with exceptional writing, acting and production talent attached. Emma’s energy, vision and ambition will help us to create the next wave of brave creative projects.’
