Matthew Arlidge

Writer

Matthew Arlidge is a successful TV producer, novelist and screenwriter. He trained as a script editor at the BBC, then spent seven years as Head of TV Development at Ecosse Films, before setting up his own independent production company, TXTV, in May 2007.

 

Prior to becoming Director of Development at TXTV, Matthew was responsible for numerous major dramas whilst working at Ecosse Films. Highlights include ‘Mistresses’, a dark relationship drama that ran for three series on BBC1 and which was re-made by the ABC network in the US, and ‘Cape Wrath’, a major co-production between C4 and Showtime, starring Tom Hardy, David Morrissey, Lucy Cohu, Felicity Jones and Harry Treadaway.

 

Since setting up TXTV, Matthew has developed and executive produced four major dramas, including ‘Torn’, an award-nominated true crime serial that delivered over seven million viewers for ITV and ‘The Little House’, a compelling adaptation of Philippa Gregory’s chilling novel about murderous maternal obsession, which starred Francesca Annis. In addition to producing, Matthew is also developing a number of screenplays via TXTV, including ‘Killing Time’, a British ‘Lethal Weapon’ for BBC1. He has also written an episode of the upcoming series of ‘Silent Witness’ and is developing an original crime show with Laura Mackie and Sally Haynes at Mainstreet Pictures.
