Alumni from the Edinburgh TV Festival’s two flagship talent schemes had the chance to rub shoulders with heads from one of the UK’s most prolific production companies last night as Endemol Shine hosted a networking event for past participants from The Network and Ones to Watch.

After a short introduction from Chief Creative Officer Peter Salmon, attendees got stuck in, catching up with their Edinburgh cohort, as well as forging new connections with Endemol staff and alumni from other years.

Representatives from many of Endemol Shine UK’s production companies and labels were present, including Artists Studio, Dragonfly, Initial, Remarkable, Shiny Button and Tiger Aspect.

“Endemol Shine have been a loyal supporter of the schemes and are a big part of keeping them free and accessible to talent from all backgrounds. They have a long record of hiring alumni from both Talent Schemes, and this year is no exception with one alumni of The Network recently accepted on to their prestigious Brightbulb internship scheme.”
