JAMES STRONG STRENGTHENS 76LTD'S OFFER.
31 August 2018

ITV's new adaptation of Vanity Fair was the talk of the Edinburgh TV festival last week, so 76Ltd are extremely pleased to announce that its BAFTA-nominated director - James Strong - has just joined their roster.

Strong has vast experience in the TV realm and has collected a significant plaudits for his work. His BAFTA nomination for 'Best Director' came in 2014 for his work on the compelling drama 'Broadchurch', the same year that it won the award for 'Best Drama Series'.

Strong's pedigree is impressive to say the least. In 2008 won the 'Best Director' award at the Welsh BAFTAs for his Doctor Who special 'Voyage of the Damned' - a spectacle of ridiculous ambition which brought together the Titanic and Kylie Minogue, and he also directed episode's on 11.22.63 in the USA, as well as 'Code of a Killer'


Vanity Fair is sure to get the nation talking, with much of the focus on Olivia Cooke who plays anti-heroine Becky Sharp. It's likely to offer further proof that James Strong knows how to make work, as he did with 'Broadchurch', that gets people talking - a prized asset in the world of advertising.

Strong's advertising work includes T K Maxx's 2013 Christmas commercial and an effecting 2015 film promoting Organ Donation which has a young woman posting a video message for Valentine's Day.


To talk about the possibility of recruiting James Strong for your next project, you need to speak to Mark Murrell at 76Ltd. He can be reached on 020 7287 1422 or via email at mark@76ltd.com.
