Samuelson has had a career in film production for more than 20 years with credits including Oscar-nominated “Tom & Viv” and “Chico & Rita” as well as Stephen Fry and Jude Law starrer “Wilde” and U.K. clicks “Stormbreaker” and “TT3D: Closer to the Edge.” He also exec produced BBC series “The Shadow Line.”

“Marc has an exciting and really clear vision for Route 24 that takes advantage of his decades in the film industry and the enviable experience and contacts that brings,” said Ruth Clarke, EVP, global content strategy and investment at ITVS GE. “The global demand for high-end drama continues and we’re thrilled Marc and his team have chosen to partner with ITVS GE to make the most of the opportunities around the world.”

Samuelson added: “ITVS GE is a really exciting company to work with. It’s global ambition, creative instincts and collaborative ethos make it our ideal partner as we work to establish a terrific new drama indie.”
