DNegTV is to set up a facility in Los Angeles that will be headed up by former Stargate Studios head of production Andy Williams.

DNegTV is the television VFX arm of Double Negative. Its credits include Emerald City (NBC), BrainDead (CBS), Fortitude (Sky), Agent Carter (Marvel TV) and The Young Pope (Sky/HBO).

DNegTV executive producer and co-founder Louise Hussey said: “Our remit on setting up DNegTV was to work with major international broadcasters to create cutting edge VFX for high-end dramas.

“Since our inception in 2013 we’ve enjoyed excellent working relationships with many of the major US production companies and to ensure we can continue to offer and expand our high levels of service it’s become key for us to have an LA presence.

“The fact that we will now be able to provide local facilities, support and investment in the US is very important to us and to our future plans.

“We are delighted to have long term friend and colleague, Andy Williams, join us as executive producer.
