Kosminsky pacts with Daybreak

Director strikes deal with Aukin, Vogel

British TV and film director Peter Kosminsky has struck an output deal to make all his future projects through David Aukin and Hal Vogel’s Daybreak Pictures.

Kosminsky’s latest mini-series “Britz,” which was co-produced by Daybreak, bowed Wednesday on U.K. terrestrial web Channel 4. It’s a thriller about two British-born Muslim siblings, drawn in radically different directions after 9/11.

Kosminsky is rolling his upcoming slate into Daybreak, including “Terrorists,” about the suffragette movement, and a drama about the poisoning of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, both for Channel 4.

He will join the Daybreak board and work with the company as a writer, director and an exec producer.

Kosminsky won British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards for “No Child of Mine,” “Warriors” and “The Government Inspector,” which Aukin produced.

Aukin and Vogel launched Daybreak a year ago as part of the Mentorn group, where Aukin previously was head of drama. The company focuses on contemporary drama, often based on real political events, such as the hypothetical “Trial of Tony Blair.”

Projects in the works include a film by writer Paula Milne about the fall of apartheid for Channel 4, and a U.S. feature by Brit writer-director Saul Dibb based on the bestseller “Sickened.”
