Lunch with a Commissioner: Gemma John-Lewis, asssistant commissioning editor, entertainment, ITV
Grab your homemade sandwich of choice and get ready to dine with a different commissioner every day. At 1pm from Monday to Friday, participants will be able to join a commissioner and listen to their insights as well as ask questions at the end of the hour.
These are great sessions for our freelance community who don’t normally get the opportunity to chat to commissioners. So, if you’re a head honcho who normally has all the commissioners on speed-dial this session isn’t for you! Please keep this in mind when booking. Thanks for your support and understanding.
Gemma John-Lewis is a commissioning editor on a range of productions within the ITV entertainment portfolio. Ranging from studio to location-based formats, contributor-led factual entertainment formats, live events and children’s live-action series.

She also works across ITV2, shows such as Take me Out: The Gossip, ITVBe's Dinner Date and Dinner Date: Love at First Bite and also CiTV's Scrambled! and Spy School.
