RESPONSIBILITIES:
To seek and oversee brilliant content for both Sky One and Sky Arts.

“I commission for weekday evening slots at 8pm, 9pm, 10pm and 10.30pm”

CONTENT:
The Russell Howard Hour * Loot * Micky Flanagan content * The South Bank Show * Single arts documentaries

WOULD LIKE TO MEET:
Obviously anyone that has a great idea – something different or unique, a new take on a tired format, a new way of approaching a genre. We are a pay channel and we need to deliver content that our customers are happy to pay for, a different offering to the terrestrial channels.

We are a pay channel and we need to deliver content that our customers are happy to pay for, a different offering to the terrestrial channels

We are interested in large-scale (either in the scale of the production or the ambition of the concept) entertainment and factual entertainment formats – shows that are thrilling, unpredictable and adrenaline fuelled. Movies are a good reference point – what movies lend themselves to a great TV format? Also looking for half-hour comedy entertainment ideas.

For Sky Arts:

  • Amazing access to great arts institutions and people
  • Stories of how the greats became great, brilliant performance

SHOWS I WATCH:
The Apprentice, Love Island, America’s Next Top Model, Bake Off, Hunted, SAS Who Dares Wins and dramas … lots of dramas!
