Top British executives PAUL MARQUESS (London Kills, Suspects, The Bill, Footballers’ Wives) and DONNA WIFFEN (The Bill, Crime Stories, Murder Investigation Team) have joined forces to create LONG STORY TV - a production entity which will develop English language drama series.


Donna and Paul first met at Thames Television where they ran top UK police series The Bill and daily drama Family Affairs as well as ITV’s Murder Investigation Team – a total of 200 hours of television per year.  Having also worked together at FremantleMedia, Endemol and BBC Worldwide, Paul and Donna have teamed with the perfect commercial and creative partner in Federation who will help them develop and fund a slate of quality, returning drama series.  


While Donna and Paul will both continue to serve as Managing Director for their respective indies (DUCHESS STREET and PGMTV) they are combining in Long Story TV to create commercial, cost-efficient, popular drama with a British sensibility – but that also has one eye on the international market.
