Monster Court and Go 8 Bit producer DLT Entertainment has invested in UK-based talent firm Hannah Layton Management.
HLM, which was founded in 2015 and focuses on comedic writer-performers, is the latest talent management addition for DLT, having previously invested in Gag Reflex, MMB Creative, The Galton Agency, Impatient Productions, The Soho Agency, Blue Book Artist Management and Andrew Roach Talent.
The firm has also recently appointed actor’s agent Ellie Cahill-Nicholls from Noel Gay.
DLT said the “synergy” created by the investments “has the potential to continue to create new opportunities for DLT, the agencies and their clients, providing a 360-degree approach to collaborating, sourcing, and developing new projects within the company.”
Layton will be based at DLT’s London office in Bedford Square.
DLT’s recent TV output has included three shows for UKTV’s Dave, including entertainment gameshow Go 8 Bit, fronted by comedian Dara O’Briain. Children’s show Monster Court launched on CBBC in 2021, while DLT’s parent also owns and manages the Shaftsbury Theatre in London.
