U.K.’s Mischief Theatre, the company behind The Play That Goes Wrong on Broadway, will be a part of the newly formed film and television arm Mischief Screen, Deadline reports. The new company will adapt theatre productions by producers Kenny Wax, Stage Presence, and Mischief Theatre.

Mischief Screen, which will be overseen by Hilary Strong, is one of six new production companies launched by Anthology Group (backed by British investment firm Bob & Co.).

The transition into film and television follows the successful TV broadcasts of Mischief Theatre's Peter Pan Goes Wrong and A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong, which both screened on BBC.

Mischief Theatre's other shows include The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, now on tour and currently running in London alongside The Play That Goes Wrong; and Mischief Movie Night, currently on tour in the U.K.

The Play That Goes Wrong is scheduled to continue on Broadway through January 6, 2019.
