Banijay U.K. has made a significant move by acquiring the renowned production company Caryn Mandabach Productions Limited (CMP), the producers behind the hit series “Peaky Blinders.” This deal, made for an undisclosed amount, marks a new chapter for both companies.

Founded by the legendary producer Caryn Mandabach, CMP has a rich history of developing and producing successful U.S. shows such as “The Cosby Show,” “Roseanne,” “3rd Rock From The Sun,” and “That ’70s Show.” With this acquisition, CMP will now operate under the name Garrison Drama Limited, and its projects and back catalogue will be transferred to Banijay U.K.

In addition to the acquisition, a first-look development and producer deal has been signed between Banijay U.K. and Caryn Mandabach under the umbrella Conduit Productions. This partnership opens the door for new creative opportunities and ventures in the future.

Notably, the creator of “Peaky Blinders,” Steven Knight, has expressed plans for expanding the ‘Peaky Blinders’ universe with future chapters. The series has gained a massive following worldwide, and fans can expect more exciting content to come.

Key figures from CMP, including creative director Jamie Glazebrook, will continue to be involved in the newly rebranded Garrison Drama company. Banijay Rights will also remain the distributor for the company’s output, ensuring a seamless transition and continuation of their successful projects.

Caryn Mandabach, who will remain involved in the upcoming “Peaky Blinders” movie, shared her enthusiasm for the collaboration with Banijay U.K. and the potential for further growth and success. The CEO of Banijay U.K., Patrick Holland, expressed his excitement for this new partnership and the opportunity to work with such a respected figure in the industry.

This acquisition sets the stage for a dynamic future for both companies, with the promise of innovative projects and continued success in the world of entertainment.
