About Rollem Productions

Rollem Production Company is a Leeds based independent production company dedicated to producing high quality drama.

Rollem was set up in 2000 by BAFTA winning writer Kay Mellor OBE to produce her hugely successful ITV drama FAT FRIENDS. Since then we have gone on to produce a host of hit shows. Our recent credits include the hugely popular returning series THE SYNDICATE, heartfelt pregnancy drama IN THE CLUB, and poignant two parter A PASSIONATE WOMAN to name just a few.

Rollem is passionate about producing programmes that audiences want to watch; programmes about real people and real lives; programmes that are entertaining and high drama. But above all, we aim to produce programmes that are relatable, innovative and original. The fact that so many of our programmes are re-commissioned for returning series shows that we must be doing it right.

With a writer at its heart, Rollem is truly a writer led production company. Our success is down to our passion for producing finely honed scripts that lead to quality drama and we firmly believe that if the script is right you’re eighty percent there. As part of this we are committed to developing new writers and helping them to become the signature writers of the future.

We are dedicated to shining a spotlight on Yorkshire and the North of England through our productions and to nurturing the abundance of regional production and acting talent that exists in the area.

With 2017 looking to be our best year to date, we’re excited for the future and look forward to creating contemporary drama that audiences love to watch for many years to come.
