Film4’s Lila Rawlings joins Left Bank

Production exec role embraces film, TV


Left Bank Pictures, bought earlier this year by Sony, has tapped Film Four’s Lila Rawlings as executive producer and development producer for film and TV.

At Film4, the movie arm of U.K. pubcaster Channel 4, Rawlings developed features including “Shame,” “The Look of Love,” “The Selfish Giant” and “The Double.”

She will work alongside Left Bank’s CEO Andy Harries, managing director Marigo Kehoe and head of film Suzanne Mackie.

Harries said, “Lila’s eye for a great script is well known within the industry, and she has nurtured and developed relationships with some of the most interesting writers, producers and directors in the U.K.”

Rawlings added, “Left Bank’s name is synonymous with quality and I look forward to working with the very best of British writing, directing and on-screen talent to continue their track record in making bold, innovative film and TV.”

Since bowing in 2007, Left Bank has produced TV series “Wallander,” based on the Henning Mankell stories for the BBC; the HBO-BSkyB co-production “Strike Back,” and BSkyB’s “Mad Dogs.” Features include “The Damned United, “The Lady” and “All in Good Time.”

In August, Sony Pictures Television bought a majority stake in Left Bank in a deal that valued it at around £40 million ($65 million).
