A creative content hub aimed at boosting Birmingham’s film and TV industry has been unveiled. A planning application has been submitted for Fazeley Street, Digbeth, which would see five existing and derelict heritage buildings changed for independent TV production and creative content developers to use. The space – designed for media innovation – will bring technological solutions to Birmingham, as the city’s creatives explore new platforms. Producers will work with broadcasters at the new area for film, TV, games and virtual production. The facility – costing £18m – will resident in a 50,000 sq ft space after cash injections from Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP). Anita Bhalla, GBSLEP Board Director for Creative and Culture said: “GBSLEP’s investment of £3m reflects our commitment to the creative industries which we see as a priority sector that stimulates inclusive economic growth and a catalyst for job creation.
