Complicated UK immigration question revolving around my new found EU permanent residency.

I am a New Zealander who lived in the UK on a 2 year working visa last year, this has now run out. The only ancestral ties I have to the UK are from the 1850's so that is not an option. I am wanting to move back to the UK in 2012, what is my easiest option?
1. I am married to a Bulgarian citizen, have been for two years. Now have a child. I am about to get permanent residency here.
2. In 2012 Bulgaria gets full EU rights.
3. I own a company in the UK with 2 friends that I work for. We make television programmes for a UK channel.
What is my best option to get a UK work permit in 2012? Does EU permanent residency mean anything? I know the UK has opted out of most things. Is through marriage the easier option? Or should our company sponsor me?
It all seems very complicated and expensive, thanks for any ideas.
