Experienced Human Interest and Factual Entertainment TV series producer. Recent projects include a celebrity travel challenge series filmed all over Europe, an obs-doc property / relationships format, plus a lavish stunt series recorded in the UK and USA. A skilled negotiator, Simon pays close attention detail in all editorial, compliance and legal matters. You will find him reliable and diplomatic, delivering on schedule and on budget. Storylining, scripting and edit producing are his strengths, plus the ability to assemble a loyal and dedicated production team. "Simon is a brilliantly organised grown up capable of running the most complicated and ambitious productions with absolute calm and professionalism. He is a joy to work with and I'm sure it won't be long until we are collaborating on something again." Richard Watsham, Senior Commissioning Editor UKTV
1 x 60mins TX PILOT - Relationships/property format. A first-time house-buying couple are given £15k to help buy their dream home, but only one of them gets to choose the house. I oversaw all aspects, especially establishing the rules and compliance guidelines, plus shooting and then edit producing to delivery.
5x 60mins Comedy travelogue. In each episode, two stars visit an unfamiliar country with £10k to spend on oddities such as midnight golf in Iceland or sabre dancing in Armenia. I chose the destinations, monitored compliance on location and wrote and edit-produced two shows - "Armenia" (David Baddiel & Richard Herring) and "Bavaria" (Josh Widdicombe & Greg Rutherford.)
5 x 60mins UKTV/Watch. Lavish HD daredevil stunt series shot in the UK & USA. Our London Eye straight-jacket escape made world news headlines - just one of forty stunts that my team and I set up and risk assessed. I hired the team and worked closely with Jonathan Goodwin and three execs to format it. I also edit-produced, storylining the episodes and writing VO.
I ran Leopard Films' Daytime department for three years, nurtured our relationship with BBC commissioners and gave opportunities to nascent PDs, APs and researchers. My prime role was to oversee production of the BBC Daytime series "Cash in the Attic" and I personally signed off more than 285 editions in three years, including 126 celebrity shows along with episodes of Car Booty & Filthy Rotten Scoundrels.
