Philip McCreery: Series Producer Programme

Philip McCreery explains how he got a job as a commissioner with UKTV as a result of ScreenSkills' Series Producer Programme.

To date over 100 series producers have taken part in the programme (in its fifth year in 2020) and approximately 85% of them have become series producers. Ten of the alumni have become commissioners or assistant commissioners.

Philip says he particularly enjoyed being mentored by a top ITV commissioner and spending days at a time amongst likeminded telly enthusiasts.

About the Series Producer Programme

The year-long Series Producer Programme is commissioned by the ScreenSkills TV Skills Fund with contributions from the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. It's designed to give its delegates the knowledge, skills and network to make the move from producer to series producer with confidence and to develop the next generation of showrunners who will become the cornerstones of UK television.
