Lunch with a Commissioner: Jon Petrie, Commissioning Editor for Comedy, Channel 4

  • When: 1st May 2020, 13:00-14:00
  • Organised by: ScreenSkills
  • Location: Online
  • Price: Free
  • Age: 18+

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.

Speaker

Jon Petrie began his career working on comedy entertainment shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, QI and Comic Relief. He’s produced five series of the BAFTA Award-winning People Just Do Nothing (after he discovered the show on YouTube), as well as Hospital People and most recently Channel 4’s Stath Lets Flats.

This event is supported by the ScreenSkills Television Skills Fund which invests in training for the freelance television workforce thanks to contributions from the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
