James got his first taste of script development when he wrote for CBBC’s Dani’s House age 15. After a stint at university, he worked in development at Fremantle and then joined Mammoth Screen as a script editor across projects such as Noughts & Crosses for BBC and Vanity Fair and Fearless for ITV. He joined Studio Lambert as Head of Drama Development in 2019.

He wants to work with the best talent to tell great stories that provoke debate and hold up a mirror to the broad range of voices across the country.

“James has a wonderful can-do attitude which is backed up by an extensive skillset. Writers and other creatives are inspired by his methods and ideas. James has the potential to go further than an executive producer in his career. I think he has the potential to play a major role in our industry in the future.”
