Mini-series "21 ALDGATE" project in development MANDIE FLETCHER to DIRECT


Mandie Fletcher has been a leading light of British comedy for more than 20 years now, applying her beautifully observed, wry sense of humour to all walks of life. From Del Boy's wheeler-dealing antics in the badlands of Peckham market, to the eponymous Blackadder's court of Elizabeth I; from the swanky West London environs of Ab Fab's Edina and Patsy, to the Welsh valleys of Ruth Jones' Stella.
With an ACE Award for Best Comedy Director, and recently named Women in Film and TV Director of the Year 2011, Mandie also has what were voted the nation's first and second favourite comedy series ever made amongst her credits. No small achievement, and Mandie is no stranger to working with high profile talent. She has directed the likes of Alfred Molina, Jonathon Pryce, Michael Elphick, Hugh Laurie and Steven Fry, as well as classic collaborations with Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French. Recent projects include the hotly anticipated sketch show The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek – definitely not one to be missed! P.G. Wodehouse's Blandings, Season 2 starring Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders.
Amid her TV successes, Mandie has also directed numerous high-end commercial spots, and we are thrilled to announce that she has been encouraged to turn that award winning humour back to this arena. Her ability to deconstruct social mores and bring out both hilarious and heartwarming performances is perfectly lent to punchy, affecting work for any brand.
