Australian producer Alexandra Blue (Cinderella Games, Welcome to Iron Knob, 52 Tuesdays Danger 5) has been appointed development producer of UK production house Eleven -the company behind Netflix smash, Sex Education.
She will develop a slate of her own projects including those in development with Film4, the BFI and Screen Australia, and she is currently co-developing a TV series with VAL.
“I am over the moon to be joining forces with a team who share my passion for bold and ambitious storytelling,” said Blue. “Eleven have a stellar reputation for breaking boundaries in television, and they are the right home to develop and grow my existing slate of comedy and drama. I have always been a champion for new, original, and diverse voices, and am excited to bring fresh stories to the slate from the best up and coming British talent, whilst also keeping an eye on writers and directors internationally.”
Blue was selected as one of 12 producers for BFI Insight, and named emerging producer of the year (SASA), best emerging filmmaker (Shorts Film Festival) while earning a nomination for best short film at the AACTA Awards. She was previously mentored by production companies including a Screen Australia talent escalator placement with Element Pictures (The Lobster, The Guard) and a six-month producer placement with Warp Films (This is England, ’71).
