In November 2019 Walter joined forces with his fellow Walter Presents co-founders Jo McGrath and Jason Thorp to launch Eagle Eye Drama. The company has grown significantly in the past two and a half years and now has four returnable globally successful drama series on its slate: Professor T and Hotel Portofino for ITV, and Before We Die and Suspect for Channel 4.

thrive commercially from book to film and television adaptations.
