Producing & Directing Team
David Hewlett’s film and television career began in his early teens, when he took a break from his Commodore 64, to hook up with a few schoolmates and work on their early film endeavors. He continues to collaborate with these filmmakers on features like Cube, Treed Murray, Cypher, Foolproof, Nothing and Warner Brothers’ Splice – produced by Guillermo Del Toro.
On screen, David’s film roles include John Boorman’s Where the Heart Is, as well as cult favorites Scanners II and Pin. In Helen he worked alongside Ashley Judd; and he played opposite Rachel Weisz in critically acclaimed The Whistleblower. David has also appeared in Haunter, as well as the box office sensation Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
David has guest-starred on countless television shows over the years including The Closer, ER, Without a Trace and The District. Hewlett’s guest star role on Stargate SG1 turned into 5 amazing years playing Dr. Rodney McKay, the brilliant, sarcastic, nerd astrophysicist on the international hit television series Stargate Atlantis.
Producer Jane Loughman began her career in entertainment news, producing shows for ITV in the UK before being tasked with transferring their productions to Los Angeles. There she was approached to produce the first live remote broadcasts for E! News. After many happy years at E!, Jane began freelancing with Entertainment Tonight, CourtTV and the IFC. Now she’s partnered up with David Hewlett in order to focus on their shared passion for making movies that matter.
Jane and David’s collaboration began with A Dog’s Breakfast, a bone-jarring, head-smacking, fiancé-bashing comedy about family, marriage, madness and murder. The film, made for a mere $125,000, was quickly snapped up for worldwide distribution by MGM and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. The couple have been developing television and digital projects for broadcasters including NBC Universal, SyFy, MGM and Bell Media, while continuing to contribute their talents to freelance work. Most recently, Jane and David produced the science fiction horror, Debug, starring Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa.
