David Kerr

Senior Development Producer, Tern TV

Ones to Watch 2023

The town of Paisley’s biggest advocate. David is a Senior Development Producer at Tern TV in Glasgow and quite frankly, he can’t believe that he’s made it to a place in life where he’s been asked to write a bio on himself in the third person. The thrill is all too much for him, so he’ll keep it brief. Some recent shows he’s developed include Martin Compston’s Northern Fling (BBC Two), Wild Weekends (BBC Three) and Tool Club (CH4). When he’s not coming up with TV formats, he’s surfing off the coast of Scotland and walking his dogs in the majestic and unrivalled streets of the mighty Paisley – his words not ours.

David is a Swiss army knife for development. Boundlessly positive and engaging, he makes your working day fun, easier, less stressful, and more productive.

– Andrew Blackwell, Head of Development at Tern TV
