Ringside Studios

Ringside Studios was established in 2020 by Gub Neal and Edward Barlow as a joint venture with leading French production and distribution group Newen Studios to create innovative, ground-breaking drama for the UK and international market. Ringside’s most recent show LIAISON, a six-part international thriller starring Eva Green and Vincent Cassel, launched on Apple TV+ in February 2023.  

My name is Leon, a 90’ film starring Malachi Kirby, Monica Dolan and Olivia Williams, aired on BBC2 in June 2022, garnering great reviews and a consolidated audience of 1.5m. It won Best TV Movie at the 2022 C21 International Drama Awards.
