Ben Nisbet

Development AP, RDF

Ones to Watch 2023

Ben is an experienced AP across development and production who first entered the industry through The Network scheme. His work has since spanned the breadth of unscripted TV, from high-concept children’s development with Twenty Twenty to premium documentary with 72 Films’ Spice Girls series for Channel 4. His strengths lie in navigating tricky access negotiations, creating transparent relationships with contributors and talent, and pitching with conviction. He currently sits in Remarkable Factual’s development team where recent commissions include a soon to be announced prime-time series for ITV1. Away from work Ben volunteers with the national LGBTQ+ museum, Queer Britain.

Ben is a beautiful, extraordinary talent who has blossomed in front of my eyes. His curiosity about the world and his tenacity equals exceptional ideas.
