Would like to meet

I am focused on the development of new ideas across features, fact-ent, true crime, documentary, and reality. We are based in the North of England across Leeds and Manchester. Always interested in meeting northern-based creatives with passion for development. We are also interested in people who can get special access in the crime and documentary space. We are always interested in amazing talent in the genres that can bring an audience to the subjects we work in.
