Neil Morrissey has quit Smith Jones Brown and Cassie to set up his

own production company with fellow comedy star, Caroline Quentin, and

Nikki Welch, an SJBC producer.



Welch and the two stars of BBC TV’s Men Behaving Badly have named the

new company Quentin Morrissey. They hope to work on a variety of

television, film and commercials projects.



’It is time to spread my wings,’ Morrissey said. ’We want to govern some

of the work ourselves and to be creative in the field of

production.’



Quentin Morrissey is working out of Tangent TV’s headquarters in Soho

while finalising plans for its own offices. The company expects to sign

up a handful of directors and is looking for ’people at the cutting

edge’, although it will not attempt to break brand new directors

immediately.



’We don’t want to appear over-ambitious or too big for our boots,’

Morrissey said, ’but we can cut the mustard.’
