About Daybreak Pictures
Daybreak Pictures was formed by Executive Producers David Aukin and Hal Vogel who together have forged a reputation for creating high profile and critically acclaimed feature films and television series; recent productions include the multi‐award winning 4 part drama mini-series The Promise, and the critically acclaimed feature‐length drama Endgame.
2013 saw the worldwide theatrical release of our latest feature film, Hyde Park on Hudson, starring Bill Murray and directed by Roger Michel. Plus our latest television series The Politician's Husband, written by Paula Milne, directed by Simon Cellan Jones and starring David Tennant & Emily Watson, was screened on BBC2.
More recently in 2014, Daybreak's comedy drama series Sirens was remade for the US cable channel USA Network. The series was co-written by actor and comedian Denis Leary and Bob Fisher.
Before founding Daybreak, David and Hal ran the drama department of Mentorn Television where they also produced the BAFTA-winning The Government Inspector, A Very Social Secretary and The Hamburg Cell. The company remains part of the Mentorn Group with Mentorn CEO John Willis on the board of directors and Tinopolis MD Arwel Rees as Chairman.
