Since 2018 CCO (and OAP) Billy McGrath has been winding down Sideline Productions and in 2021 post-COVID Billy has made a decision to ‘get off the road’ to enjoy life, family, and the future. Sideline now is purely a content creation company with one employee! This highly experienced content creator/producer/director is currently developing and focused on originating scripted material and feature-length docs plus working as a script editor/doctor; EP or project consultant (with writers/producers) either in development, production, or in post.

Instinctively though Billy can’t avoid creating or backing commercial hits. With the Writer’s Tax Exemption Cert (since 2017); immersed in the 3rd Act and an MA in Screenwriting (IADT) completed, he is happy to work ‘on spec’ if the idea is strong enough and can also personally fund any project to a Bible, Treatment, Sizzle, 1st Draft or Pilot if required, before then pitching directly to an established network of commissioners (inc the UK), international agent, distributors, directors, and producers. Usual T&Cs apply.

During 2022 a new live stage memoir GUSTO with Billy Magra was workshopped in Listowel, Galway, Limerick with a week’s run in Dublin’s Project Arts Theatre in April before a special edited show on Sunday August 6th at the Curious Minds Tent at the brilliant All Together Now Festival in Co. Waterford .


Meantime enjoy the wide range of shows we have produced since 2005.
