Bad Wolf to open major film and TV studio in Cardiff

A major new film and TV production studio is to be opened in Cardiff by the production company Bad Wolf.

The new production facility will be based at Trident Park, Ocean Way, close to Cardiff City Centre and has been acquired by the Welsh Government.

A spokesperson said the site will be leased "on commercial terms", intended for Bad Wolf’s productions as well as being able to accommodate other major TV productions.

The two linked high bay units at Trident Park total 253,500 sq ft, with producers saying that the height of the buildings (7.5 metres/57ft) is ideal for the scale of the productions they hope to attract.

Bad Wolf – co-sited in Wales and the US - was set up in 2015 by former BBC executives Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner.

The company will film all of its forthcoming productions in the studio, including the series A Discovery of Witches and His Dark Materials.

The Welsh Government says the project marks "a significant investment in Wales as an international television production hub."
