Adrian went on to form his own production company, Turning Point Productions, which in 1989 produced the multi-award-winning Gerald Seymour thriller Red Fox starring John Hurt, Jane Birkin and Brian Cox. He then took up the challenge of producing and launching the first series of the BBC1 popular drama Dangerfield which led to an executive producer’s role for the BBC’s London drama department to oversee shows including Casualty.
In 1997 a return to his independent company Turning Point saw Adrian producing the award-winning John Mortimer adaptation of Laurie Lee’s Cider with Rosie for ITV. In 1999, Adrian took up the post of Head of Film & Drama at Zenith Entertainment, where he produced and executive produced more than 40 hours of prime time UK drama over the next seven years. These included three seasons of Two Thousand Acres of Sky, two seasons of 55 Degrees North for BBC1, the controversial Hear the Silence for Five, and Class of ‘76 starring Robert Carlyle for ITV.
Adrian joined Box TV in October 2006, where he has executive produced The Last Enemy for BBC1 and been developing a slate of dramas for UK and international broadcasters. His first commission for Box is Affinity, an Andrew Davies adaptation of the Sarah Waters novel, which Adrian has produced.
