Wimbledon Studios Ltd, the company behind the TV studios where series such as the BBC comedy Episodes is filmed, has gone into administration.

The company operates three film and television studios in south west London and the Wimbledon Media Village, which is the base for a number of post-production and media businesses.

Rob Croxen and Jane Moriarty, from financial services firm KPMG, have been appointed to oversee the company’s administration.

Wimbledon Studios Ltd employs 16 staff. However, four employees were made redundant when the administrators were appointed.

Croxen said that, despite financial support from its principal investor and landlord, Panther Securities, Wimbledon Studios Ltd had been “unable to generate the revenues required to maintain the business”.

“We are now assessing the options available to the business and, with the continued support from Panther Securities, we are hopeful that an orderly process can be conducted over the coming weeks,” he said.
