We are Bandit

We put creative talent at the heart of everything we do.

We believe in fostering long-term collaborative relationships with passionate writers, directors and actors, nurturing and encouraging their vision and their voice, cultivating and championing their stories and their ideas.


Bandit is synonymous with primetime, high end authored drama ranging in tone and theme from the darkly humorous relationship drama DELICIOUS on SKY ONE, created by Dan Sefton, starring Dawn French and Emilia Fox, to the incisively chilling true crime drama RILLINGTON PLACE on BBC ONE, written by Ed Whitmore and Tracey Malone, directed by Craig Viveros, starring Samantha Morton and Tim Roth. 


At Bandit, we are developing projects with both emerging and established writers, and are committed to representing diversity on screen and off.
