Twickenham Studios is increasing its post-production capacity as it seeks to entice more TV shows to the overhauled facility.
The West London studio, which was plucked out of administration in July, is adding picture post to the range of services it offers, with an online suite and a grading theatre expected to be up and running by December.
A smaller dubbing theatre will also be built.
“We have 40 cutting rooms, so lots of offline capacity,” said chief operating officer Maria Walker.
“Also, we have traditionally been known for sound - particularly for feature films - but some productions can find our audio rooms a little intimidating.”
Twickenham is still in negotiations on the post-production kit that will be used but hopes to have the new rooms fully functional, alongside its existing two dubbing theatres, by the end of the year.
Walker declined to reveal how much will be spent on the upgrades but said the addition of kit such as a £50,000 3D Christie projector to the facility’s Theatre Two dubbing theatre was an indication of the level of investment.
The three production studios are also undergoing a cosmetic and structural overhaul.
Walker said the facility could benefit from the incoming tax breaks for high-end drama, and that a delegation from the studios would head to Los Angeles to raise the profile of the facility in the US.
Meanwhile, former head of sound engineering Carl Childs has returned to the studios as head of engineering, and Gwilym Perry has been recruited as foley mixer and ADR recordist.
