OPEN FOR REQUESTS
Helen Nightingale, Senior Commissioning Editor, UKTV
Thursday 4 June | 15.30 - 16.30
Helen commissions brand new and exciting factual and factual entertainment content across all commissioning channels on the network. She develops, pitches and executive produces projects and manages relationships with indies, agents and talent to ensure UKTV gets – and keeps – the very best ideas.
WLTM: “Passionate programme makers with great ideas. People who are as obsessed with TV as I am. People who can roll with the punches because there are so many knock backs in our game. People who watch telly and, specifically, who watch our channels and have some idea what we commission and what we might be looking for. Having said that I do love an off the wall idea too! I commissioned Hurricane Man for Dave having met the producer Ed Kellie (who’s idea it was) at an Edinburgh Speed Meeting, so you see, dreams can come true.”
Applications close at 17.00 on Tuesday 2nd June.
