Merman Developing Danny Brocklehurst Drama ‘Dirty’ at Amazon with ‘Peaky Blinders’ Producer Caryn Mandabach & Merman Executives Sharon Horgan & Clelia Mountford
Caryn Mandabach Productions, which owns and produces BBC’s and Netflix’s PEAKY BLINDERS, and Merman, which produces MOTHERLAND, also for BBC, alongside Kapital Entertainment, are in development with Amazon Studios for drama series DIRTY, written by Danny Brocklehurst (SAFE, SHAMELESS, THE DRIVER).

Caryn Mandabach and Jamie Glazebrook will executive produce for Caryn Mandabach Productions along with Sharon Horgan and Clelia Mountford for Merman, Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor of Kapital Entertainment and Danny Brocklehurst.
Sharon Horgan said:
“I love Danny’s writing and I loved this idea from the minute I read it. There’s an atmosphere and grit to it that feels very new. We’re delighted that we get to bring it to life”.
Danny Brocklehurst said:
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Caryn Mandabach Productions, Merman and Amazon to bring this unique show to life.”
Jamie Glazebrook, for Caryn Mandabach Productions, said,
“In DIRTY Danny has created a truly surprising lead. I’m so happy to be working with Danny, Merman, Kapital and Amazon, which is the perfect home for a series that’s going to be hugely entertaining and deeply resonant.”
Caryn Mandabach Productions is repped by Shelley Reid, Merman is repped by WME and George Davis, Danny Brocklehurst is repped by CAA, United Agents and Thruline.
