Hoodlum is run by Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield and makes scripted, factual and digital programming. Its drama credits include ABC series Secrets & Lies and a new pilot for NBC, The Strange Calls.
The deal, between ITV Studios America and Australian Hoodlum, focuses on scripted programing for the US market and will see Australia-based Hoodlum set up shop in ITV Studio’s LA headquarters.
Orly Adelson, president ITV Studios America (pictured) said: “Hoodlum has a wide range of international experience with impressive accomplishments already in Australia, the UK and the US and we are excited to continue building on that great work with Tracey, Nathan and the team here in America.”
“We’ve had a long and prosperous relationship with ITV and ITV Studios in the UK and are thrilled to be working closely with Orly Adelson, Julie Meldal-Johnsen and their team in the US,” said Tracey Robertson. “Hoodlum is excited to be partnering with such an internationally recognised studio that produces such a wide variety of innovative and entertaining content for the global market.”
