Headed by LCW’s Co-Founder and Executive Producer Walid Omar, the studio will be looking to recruit both senior development executives and creative staff as well as working with freelance writers and IP owners to work in collaboration with its established team in Malaysia.

“The U.K. is the natural home for our expanded business — not only was I raised and spent much of my formative career there, but the U.K. has a vast array of creative talent that we want to work with to build our slate of original IP,” says Omar. “We are also keen to collaborate with other U.K. studios as a production partner. We hope that our fusion of talent and ideas combined with U.K. voices will enable us to create and tell stories that are full of energy, bold and fun.”
