Talent Films


Talent Films was born out of successful independent television production company Talent Television, to focus on feature films and scripted television. As MD of both companies, Tony Humphreys oversaw all productions, including its children’s output – Inside Clyde (Disney), Best of Friends (BBC/CBBC) and My Phone Genie (ITV/CITV/ZDFE). Talent Films has a new development slate which includes Flipside, a live-action teen drama series, created with award winning directors Max and Dania and the highly experienced writer and showrunner, Paul McKenzie.

Paul McKenzie is a former head of development at Disney and has produced and set up multiple successful long-running family and children’s drama series, including BBC’s Dani’s House, Sadie J, Kerching, and Dani’s Castle; Disney’s The Lodge, Hetty Feather and Sky Kid’s The Athena. Paul and Tony first worked together on C4’s long running comedy series “Desmond’s”.

FLIPSIDE – 10 x 24 minute Teenage Drama (In development)

Ashanti is a teenage girl caught between two worlds. Her West African culture, and her passion for skateboarding. The youngest of her large Ghanaian/Nigerian heritage family, her obsession with everything “Skateboarding” and desire to compete for Team GB at the Olympics, doesn’t exactly fit in with the path that her Christian Pastor mother has mapped out for her.
