Head of Development, Factual Entertainment
James started out at Naked in 2017 as an AP and has helped develop some of our most successful brands – including Celebrity Trash Monsters: What’s your waste size? (C4), 21 Again (BBC Three), The Killer Nanny: Did She Do It? (C4), The Love Triangle (E4) as well as How the Other Half Live with Brian Cox (C5 / Paramount Plus). As well as generating and developing ideas, creating adrenaline-sparking sizzles is James’ specialist skill.
Prior to joining us, James worked at NBC Universal and Mentorn where he was part of a team of three that produced an award-winning web series Things Not To Say for BBC Three. Spanning further back he also worked in the scripted world at Cornerstone Films. He loves films, sport (he’s a Newcastle United fan via his Geordie dad) and travelling, recently embarking on a round-the-world trip with his girlfriend Alice where his highlight was the Mississippi Delta. He came home and bagged a bunch of blues records at the first opportunity and can’t wait to go back.
