Stephen Garrett is joint managing director, with Jane Featherstone, of Kudos Film & Television Ltd., which he founded and which is now Britain's premier independent producer of television drama.
Mr. Garrett was executive producer of David Cronenberg's award-winning Eastern Promises (also a Focus Features release), which was the first project for the Kudos' new film division, headed by Paul Webster, to reach movie screens.
Since its inception in 1992, Kudos has produced such notable projects as the miniseries Tsunami: The Aftermath, helmed by Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day director Bharat Nalluri, which was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards; 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 was based on an original idea of Mr. Garrett's and which gave Matthew Macfadyen his breakout role.
Currently in production, written by Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, is the miniseries Burn Up, directed by Omar Madha and starring Bradley Whitford and Neve Campbell. On the feature side, Kudos is in production on the documentary The Crimson Wing, co-directed by Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward.
Mr. Garrett's producing credits also include Gillies MacKinnon's Pure, starring Keira Knightley; and Sam Miller's Among Giants, written by Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day screenwriter Simon Beaufoy and starring Pete Postlethwaite and Rachel Griffiths.
