1. David Heyman’s New “Heyday” Television Venture

Harry Potter producer David Heyman is teaming up with NBCUniversal International Studios to create a Television company that will be dedicated to bringing viewers “premium long-form scripted content.” Heyman is most well known for being a very successful movie producer. Outside of producing a limited TV series called The Worricker Trilogy, this is Heyman’s first major involvement with television.

This does not mean Heyman is done with films. Not in the slightest. With now less than a year to go for the release of the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film, Heyman has just added a lot more work to his load. But he will enjoy it!

Deadline was first to report this story, exclusively, and said:


The new company, which will be a stand-alone from Heyman’s film banner Heyday Films, will have office in London and Los Angeles. Heyman is currently staffing up the operations. The deal, which will give Heyman access to NBCUni’s global distribution platform, is designed to provide flexibility for the feted producer. Although its slate is still in the formative stages, Heyday Television will have two blind series commitments from NBC. The new company will also have the freedom to sell its shows to other networks, as well as cable and premium channels like HBO and the likes of Netflix and Amazon.

“The great appeal of this deal for us is working with David Heyman,” NBCUni Intl Studios president Michael Edelstein told Deadline. “He’s as talented a producer as there is, with a broad range of tastes and material defined by high quality. We look forward to helping David bring his passion and creativity to global television audiences for years to come.”

“It’s a very exciting time for TV. I got into films because of European films in the ’60s and American films in the ’70s,” Heyman tells Deadline. “Increasingly, that is no longer the domain of film. Those films are being made in television and that really excites me. To make intelligent, mainstream entertainment and to do it in the UK and the U.S., that really is the primary driver for me. I love TV.”

“To tell a story over an extended period of time, even with Potter it was over 18 hours, gives me great pleasure,” said Heyman. “If you look at my tastes in film, they are all fairly different but what I am drawn to is characters, for all their magic and fantasy. It’s really about people with whom the audience can engage. All the special effects do not have currency without people and characters with whom you can engage. I hope to bring that to television.”
