Senior Development Producer
Samantha is an experienced development producer, specialising in Specialist Factual and Factual Entertainment. With over 16 years in the industry, working in both production and development, she has been lucky enough to follow her passions for science, true crime and current affairs programming.
Prior to TV, she was a trained broadcast journalist and was often found reporting and reading the news! She has been lucky enough to follow her passion for making documentaries in a variety of locations – from hiking up volcanoes in Iceland, exploring Mayan temples in Mexico, and in the devastation after tornadoes in the US. She has also developed and won commissions for broadcasters such as National Geographic, Netflix, History, Red Bull, BBC, NOVA, Discovery Channel and Channel 4.
In her spare time, she has been studying for a master’s degree in Positive Psychology, which she uses to get great results in team brainstorms!
