Deadpan Pictures is an award-winning boutique production company specialising in TV and feature film comedy drama. Building on the success of International Emmy-winner Moone Boy, Trivia and a history of highly successful comedy production (as Grand Pictures), Deadpan continues to work with the best Irish comedy talent, bringing projects with a distinct Irish flavour to the international market.
Their most recent productions include The Last Right, from writer/director Aoife Crehan, starring Michiel Huisman and Niamh Algar. We teamed up with CrossDay Productions for the film which is part financed by eOne Entertainment. Four Kids and It, a family adventure feature film starring Academy Award-winner Michael Caine, Paula Patton, Matthew Goode and Russell Brand, is due for release in late 2019. The film is based on the best-selling children’s novel by Jacqueline Wilson and is a co-production with Dan Films and Kindle Entertainment.
Deadpan also recently brought Sharon Horgan and Lorna Martin’s Women on the Verge to RTÉ, as production partners alongside Merman and House Productions in the UK where it aired on UKTV’s premium entertainment channel, W. Prior to that they produced female-led comedy Nowhere Fast (6 x 30 mins) by Alison Spittle, which is about life in the Irish midlands and aired to critical acclaim on RTÉ and BBC Worldwide (BBC Studios) and Can’t Cope Won’t Cope which was received with acclaim on RTÉ for 2 series and has sold internationally to Netflix.
