Producers to depart Playmaker
David Maher and David Taylor to return to working as independent producers.
Playmaker Media founders David Maher and David Taylor are stepping down in the coming months to return to work as independents.
They founded Playmaker in 2009 and sold the company to Sony Pictures Television in 2014.
Their credits have included House Husbands, Bloom, Love Child, The Commons, The Code, Bite Club, Friday on My Mind, The Wrong Girl, Chosen, Hiding, Wicked Love: The Maria Korp Story, Blood Brothers and SLiDE.
“It continues to be an exciting time to produce drama and we’re looking forward to whatever comes next,” they said.
Wayne Garvie, Sony’s president of international production, said: “We fully support David’s Maher and Taylor in their decision to go back to working as independent producers, and look forward to working with them in their new capacity, while continuing to invest in and build Playmaker under a new management team.”
Playmaker’s most recent title, Reckoning, produced for the US market, is coming soon to Seven.
