Pepper Trio Snapped Up By Prime Focus
Prime Focus has recruited colourist Kevin Horsewood, editor Scott Hinchcliffe and technical producer Kate Robson from financially-troubled facility Pepper. While at Pepper, the team worked together on dramas such as Hustle, Law & Order, Sherlock, Spooks, Whitechapel and Midsomer Murders - and have been brought in to help Prime Focus expand its primetime drama programming activities.
"Joining Prime Focus was a natural choice for us," said Kevin Horsewood. "The company has such a positive attitude and shows such initiative that the decision was easy. They also clearly showed that they take great pride in investing in both the technology and the people that you need to produce really eye-opening television. Scott, Kate and I are absolutely thrilled to be at the forefront of Prime Focus' continued push into high-end drama programming."
Simon Briggs, managing director, UK, added: "I am delighted to bring such an experienced and well-regarded team onboard. Their contribution will be immeasurable as we continue to develop our drama programming output, helping to drive our business forward and grow the profile of our work. I look forward to seeing our name attached to more high-end drama projects over the coming months."
