Earlier this year Fremantle Media, the production giant behind ‘American Gods’ and ‘The Young Pope’, acquired a 25 per cent stake in Duck Soup Films, allowing the company to expand further and appoint Jackie Okwera as head of development.

Duck Soup Films was founded by producers Libby Durdy, Bekki Wray-Rogers and Jessica Holyland, who were previously responsible for producing some of the UK’s best TV drama including the multi BAFTA award winning ‘This is England’ and the International EMMY award winning ‘Utopia’ series.

Ms Holyland, director of operations and finance at Duck Soup, commented, “We love being part of Leeds’s most creative community at the Round Foundry,”
