Hollie Abbott

Development Producer

  • Location: London & South West
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Unavailable

I am a multi-skilled Development Producer/Production AP, BAFTA Crew member and telly addict!

Having previously worked on a range of productions, I have been working in Development for over 2 years and have really found my stride in this area of television. I have secured several funded developments and very recently co-developed a successful commission for W Channel.

I am hugely ambitious in my ideas and have a flare for fact ent, entertainment and reality formats. I have been lucky enough to pitch my ideas directly to commissioners at ITV, the BBC, Channel 4, 5, UKTV, Discovery and MTV.

I have produced, shot and edited over 40 taster tapes that have been highly commended by commissioners and been key to securing a Channel 5 commission.

I would also love to hear about production opportunities as I am very experienced at setting up locations in the UK and internationally, casting, shooting with a range of cameras/ camera assisting and conducting recces. I have experience with handling a range of contributors from those with sensitive stories to experts and celebrities.
