Cumberbatch also said he would be using his new production company, SunnyMarch, to champion female-focused dramas as well as creating opportunities for women around the company. The Avengers star said he and his business partner Adam Ackland were “proud” to be the only men in the company. “Our next project is a female story with a female lens about motherhood,” Cumberbatch said.
“If it’s centred around my name, to get investors, then we can use that attention for a raft of female projects. Half the audience is female!”
