ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has struck a first time deal with Kate Sinclair's new production company, Alchemy Entertainment.

Kate has experience sourcing and acquiring the rights to a raft of highly successful film properties pre publication, including 'Slumdog Millionaire' and 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen'.

She founded Alchemy Entertainment to bring the values and expertise of film to television, using her experience as an Executive Producer at the Forge and nine years at Company Pictures to establish the new company. Kate has also worked for 10 years in film for Film 4, the UK Film Council, Kudos, Seesaw and Aardman, among others.
Kate Sinclair said: "Our aim is to make bold, ambitious and vivid stories in a cinematic way. We hope to bring our passion, expertise and relationships from the film industry to the small screen and already have a diverse, exciting slate of both new and established projects in development. We are truly delighted to be working with the wonderful team at ITVS GE whose international panache and vision makes them a fantastic distribution partner for us."
Ruth Berry, Managing Director ITV Studios Global Entertainment, added: "Kate and her team at Alchemy Entertainment have the potent combination of the ability to think big and the pedigree to bring those ideas to life. They join a number of producers in the ITV family who excel in the production of both television and film. We look forward to supporting them and sharing what I'm sure will be exceptional creations with audiences worldwide."

Alchemy has also brought on BAFTA award-winning Kevin Loader ('The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies', 'The Death of Stalin', 'The Lady in the Van') and Paul Ritchie ('McMafia', 'The Woman in Black', 'Nowhere Boy'), both of whom have worked extensively across television and film, to help source, develop and produce for the company.
