Stephen Garrett is joint managing director, with Jane Featherstone, of Kudos Film & Television Ltd., one of Britain's premier television production companies. Eastern Promises is the first project for the company's new film division, headed by Paul Webster, to reach movie screens.
Since its inception in 1992, Kudos has produced such notable projects as the hit caper series Hustle; the BAFTA Award-nominated cop fantasy series Life on Mars; Paul Lynch's International Emmy Award-winning The Magician's House; Grant Gee's Grammy Award-nominated feature documentary on Radiohead, Meeting People is Easy; and the BAFTA Award-winning spy drama series Spooks (titled MI-5 in the U.S.), which gave Matthew Macfadyen his breakout role.
Also for Focus Features, Mr. Garrett is producing Kudos's Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, starring Frances McDormand and directed by Bharat Nalluri, whose most recent credit was Kudos's miniseries Tsunami: The Aftermath (which was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards). Rounding out the current Kudos slate of features is the documentary The Crimson Wing, co-directed by Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward.
