Hartswood Films are behind generations of unique, innovative, multi-award winning shows with a dedicated worldwide following.

Hartswood Films creates landmark drama and comedy for leading broadcasters and platforms across the world.

We work with exceptional writers, including our creative director Steven Moffat, to turn their vision into shows that engage and enthral international audiences of all generations. We are a writer-led production company and will always fight for the script and the screenwriter to be at the heart of what we do. It’s an approach that has won us a loyal following, plus multiple awards including BAFTA, Emmy, Peabody and the Royal Television Society.

Hartswood Films was founded in 1979 by the legendary producer Beryl Vertue, business manager and agent to some of Britain’s greatest comedy creators. Our history is rooted in many of the best-loved British and American comedies of TV’s first golden age. That unique history is the platform on which we continue to produce some of today’s most beloved scripted television.

With production bases in Richmond and Cardiff, Hartswood takes pride in championing the best new talent from all over the UK and on both sides of the camera. We believe in combining creative excellence with fairness, decency and social responsibility, as demonstrated in our long-term commitment to widening access to the industry we love.
