Sky To Create Up To 3,000 New Jobs In Hertfordshire

Sky has announced plans for a new studio which it says will create up to 3,000 new jobs in Hertfordshire.

The new multi-million 32 acre TV and film studio will be built near the existing Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire and will work in collaboration with them on some productions.

Sky is expected to submit a planning application at the start of next year and the studios could be up and running before the end of 2022.

Elstree is a famous name in the world of film and TV, with productions including Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Superman, The Shining, Labyrinth, Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice and Big Brother.

The managing director of Elstree Studios, Roger Morris, said: “Sky Studios Elstree will be of immense importance to the UK film and television industry. It will not only boost the local economy of Hertsmere and Hertfordshire, but will also have a major impact on the UK’s creative sector as a whole.”

“We are extremely proud that Sky Studios Elstree has chosen to locate near us and we look forward to working closely with them,” added Mr Morris.

Sky’s group chief executive, Jeremy Darroch, also commented, saying: “Sky Studios Elstree will play a pivotal role in bringing the wealth of UK and European talent and creativity to the world. We know our customers love our award-winning Sky Originals like Chernobyl, and our investment in Sky Studios Elstree will enable us to bring more unique stories to more viewers.”

“We are proud to be working with our colleagues at NBCUniversal and Comcast, and our partners Hertsmere Borough Council and L&G, to bring this project to life. Together we share a joint vision to create a world-leading production capability that will support the creation of thousands of jobs in the creative sector. We can’t wait to get started,” added Mr Darroch.

The news follows just one month after Sky announced 1,000 new jobs in Leeds and other parts of the UK.
